On Anwar Shaikh's
Quarterly Publication: LIBERTY
Professor Hasan Askari,
the author of several philosophical treatises, writes:
"Anwar Shaikh's quarterly,
LIBERTY, signifies a major intellectual development in the Muslim consciousness
in the West which I welcome and would very much like to see grow and stabilise
the layout and the format is academic and worthy of serious attention."
"The Journal seems to
be addressed to the freethinking person irrespective of his religion or
culture. This mode of address in itself, besides its intellectual content,
is a far-reaching advance over the current modes of communication which
somehow cripple freedom of thought in their very structure."
"The two major essays
entitled "the Mystery" and "Free Will" are well written, and offer a vast
spectrum of thought. I look forward to the expansion of the themes they
invoke in subsequent issues of the journal. I feel a fresh air in the words
and thoughts of Anwar Shaikh and greet his venture with hope and prayer."
M.A., in English and Psychology is a well-known poet of the Urdu and English
languages. He writes:
"I am grateful
for Liberty. Who wouldn't be! Your writings command compelling interest.
I wish Liberty success. I am astonished at your optimism and courage.
I salute you."
