Interview with M. Salahuddin Khan, author of Sikander

You’re an average, every-day guy. You served in the military, found the love of your life and now you’re home trying to start your own business. You turn on the television and what you see terrifies you. How could this happen? It is beyond horrible! It is 9/11 and the first plane has hit the towers. You know life, as you know it, will never be the same. Not because you’re one of the millions of Americans affected by this horrible tragedy, though you feel compassion for them. You are Pakistani, your Muslim family gathers around you to watch. The second plane hits. What will life be like for you now?

Sikander is a look inside one man’s journey before and after 9/11. A Muslim man, who loves his wife, who wants to help her get her sisters out of Afghanistan.

This book gives a unique perspective, a human one, one that can enable compassion and empathy when you least expect it.

Reader’s Entertainment host Sheila English speaks with M. Salahuddin Khan, author of the novel Sikander. They discuss the book and the hope of understanding cultures and people.
