What I have tried to depict in my fictional work, is the social cum religious circumstances that has become the breeding ground of Muslim radicals in  countries like Pakistan, who are fanning terrorisms world over through inter-connected stories of my saga of Basher, name of hero in Urdu that means in English a “human”. In brief the story is as follows:-


Clouded Crescent is a story of a chattering child of a commoner, who falls in the hands of malevolence mongers and terrorists in milieu of contemporary Pakistan, terror campaigners compel him first to become terror thinking Islamist after he escapes from a prison falsely accused by his landlord. Then the radicals sent him to Taliban training camp where due to his liberal views and dissenting acts, terror trainers put him before firing squad; a drug baron rescues him from the claws of death and uses him in drug and arms smuggling to India and Saudi Arabia.


 Basher who has a character of more of heroics than acumen, befriends a Sikh gunrunner to Maoist rebels, then in a sort of religious school in the insurgency belt of India where he encounters a headmistress who keeps him as her gigolo.  At the time of 9/11, Basher escapes from India through Nepal.         


  The Islamist cleric clout again draws him to terrorism after a devastating tragedy in his family and send him to Afghanistan with Al-Qaeda units to fight American forces there after 9/11. US troops capture him, send him to Bay prison in Cuba, returns from reformatory as a changed man and discovers Al-Qaeda digging for doom stealthily, to steal atom bombs to be smuggled to United States for an Armageddon…
