Iqbal Qaiser

Iqbal Qaiser was in Islamabad today. We met a few hours ago and he read me a chapter from his upcoming book. It’s a travelogue through history, a present through the past, about the Jains and their mandirs.

I stopped him after the opening paragraph and took the manuscript before letting him continue the reading, just to see the words. It’s a brilliant piece of Punjabi prose. It was a pleasure to read something so original in Punjabi non-fiction. I’ll let you know when it gets published. You are going to thank him for writing this.

I’d like to get in touch with Iqbal Qaiser to find contacts about presently living Jains in Pakistan. This is regarding a research project to study the evolution of Jain community in Pakistan.
