The book is important to understand the relations between political Islam and gender.
(Free Press Journal, 1 October 2017)
[The book] breaks many stereotypes. For instance, hijab clad women who are looked upon by many as passive victims of a hardline Islam might not see themselves that way at all. Babar’s research reveals that such women, more often than not, view themselves as active participants in the quest to change society.
(The Telegraph, 7 July 2017)
This feisty book, as echoed in the title We Are All Revolutionaries Here, is a fascinating mapping by a Pakistani woman of the journey that a generation of ‘born again’ Pakistanis have taken towards the re-constitution of a Pakistani Islamic identity that rejects the hotchpotch of western culture and Pakistani’s plural ethnic cultures to embrace a version of militant Islam that erases all other versions and problematically condones ‘fringe’ vigilante groups using violence in the name of faith. Babar’s book is an invitation to exploring the value of comparative analysis, a largely neglected research field in South Asia. Her methodology of auto-ethnography illustrates the effectiveness of incorporating of the personal in her analysis. Her creativity in innovating on research texts and her choice of the diaspora as a focus of analysis as well as a foil, demonstrates exciting approaches to doing research. Above all Babar’s book lays out a research agenda for grappling with gender, political faith and militarism in a region characterized by multiple fundamentalisms.
