Mr Yasser Latif Hamdani’s observations in his column ‘Use of religion in politics’ (Daily Times, April 13, 2015) on my review of Venkat Dhulipala’s book, Creating a New Medina: State Power, Islam and the Quest for Pakistan in Late Colonial North India, raise interesting questions. He is of the opinion that my endorsement of Dhulipala’s findings that Islamism and its conventional experts, the ulema, played a prominent role in the campaign to create Pakistan contradicts the main position I have taken in several of my articles, i.e. that the Lahore Resolution was the brainchild of Lord Linlithg...

“South Africans will kick down the statue of a dead white man but won’t even attempt to slap a live one. Yet they can stone to death a black man simply because he is a foreigner.” UBUNTU is clearly foreign and totally alien to South Africa. I write this article to release some of my pent up anger and anguish, caused by what Zimbabweans and other Africans have been subjected to over the past few weeks in that land just south of the Limpopo called South Africa. To those who know their history, the irony is not lost in that the Great Zimbabwe Empire, and hence modern day Zimbabwe, actually had ...

No-one would care if they threw a meat bone over their shoulder, if they pinched a serving wench’s bottom, if they belched lustily, or even danced on the table. Almost anything went at what was billed as Oxfordshire’s first Medieval English Banquet. Such events were well established in the north of England, and in April 1974, Douggie Wharmby, manager of the Riverside Hotel in Burcot, near Abingdon, decided it was time to try the idea in the south. He, h...
