    Pakistani styles of religious leadership

    I'm interested in writing a long essay on different styles of religious leadership in Pakistan (sufi, pir, maulvi, mullah). Know of any good sources or leads for getting info on this topic?

    a good idea! i am afraid you wouldn't find much of reliable primary or secondary information on the web. best way would be to conduct your own research. it is time consuming and costly but that's the best way. will send you any worthwhile link if i find one.

      I can't remember his name but there was this excellent book by an Iranian writer on Maudoodi and a second one by him onthe Jamiat e ISlami..another book available with the OUP is one on the Jamaat ULema ISlam..again forgotten it's name. Most of the best books are in URdu unfortunately.

      Amongst writers, the best is Khaled Ahmad's writings in the friday times.
      How can a man die better than facing fearful odds for the ashes of his fathers and the Temple of his Gods?
