The Embattled Innocence
Recollections of a Muslim Relief Worker – Suleman Ahmer
‘The Embattled Innocence’ is a collection of essays gleaned from Suleman Ahmer’s time spent as a relief worker in the war-torn regions that include Bosnia, Chechnya, Tajikistan, and Afghanistan. The profoundly touching, deeply reflective, and intensely poignant essays bring to fore the human suffering and survival through devastating periods of history oft-overlooked by casual observers. In his work, Ahmer not only recounts his experiences but assesses the irredeemable hidden. the collateral damage of wars. His reflections force readers to examine their own conscience when reacting to the tragedy of war and coax alive the human part of a generally desensitized global morality. ‘The Embattled Innocence’ packs an overwhelming dose of how dim the lights of hope maybe, there are people who will work against odds to turn things around!
