It is Pakistan in the year 2000 and three young men need to make decisions about their future after school. When Kashif's father is murdered by religious fanatics, he continues his education in England and questions his lifelong training in the Quran. Devout Muslims, Siddiq and Adnan, are mesmerised by the charmingly persuasive Islamic militant, Uthman, as he assembles the youth at their Karachi mosque. By creating guilt, fear and confusion on the one hand, and a strong desire for the ample rewards of Paradise on the other, Uthman attempts to lure as many youths as possible into joining ‘The Army of Mohammad' - an Islamic terrorist movement with strong links to the Taliban.

Siddiq is not convinced, but Adnan is adamant - he wants the milk, honey, seventy-two virgins and eternal life in Paradise, as promised by Allah to all who obey him.

We follow their stories as each goes their way, and are left questioning the very core of our beliefs as tragic events unfold.

Born to a middle class family in Karachi, Pakistan, I had an educated and loving upbringing.

I saw first-hand the growth of the Taliban in my city, Karachi. In fact, I was approached by them to join their mujahedeen cause. I encountered deaths of innocent civilians from suicide bombing by the Taliban and other Islamic extremist groups. These experiences, alongside my scientific and philosophical curiosity, turned me into an agnostic.

I decided to write this book in hope of bringing an understanding to the reader about the choices that some of us faced during the rise of Taliban in Pakistan.
