Bio

Iqbal Latif is a contributor on global issues. His primary interest is in treatment of 'minorities' in the Islamic world. He weaves a story in a manner that co-relates freedom of mind with prosperity of people. Freedom from orthodoxy and decadence is the goal of his writings. His slogan is Jean Jacques Rousseau quote 'Man is born free, and everywhere he is in shackles.' He thinks war on terror has led to 'containment of freedom to operate' for the terrorists to operate hence when there are no infidels to kill, they turn on each other no less bloodier.' Cogito ergo sum ''Je pense donc je suis" "I think, therefore I am"
