Khurshid Nadeem

journey of a new alternative discourse

Khurshid Nadeem is a public intellectual of our generation.He writes for the future generation. In the midst of great confusion about ideas, what is right and what is wrong, Khurshid Nadeem’s essays, books and columns are an essential reading on politics and society – his favorite subjects which define his objective of a life worth living on media and through organized social work.

Nadeem is honest and fiercely tied to his thoughts and lessons learnt through a self made life of work and arduous reading. He has carved his own way to influence the public discourse. His earliest interest was in Islamic thought inspired from scholars of his age. He also ventured into literature which garnishes his writings and talks to this day. All of this helped him to take a leap into the world of higher learning and academia which consummated his thoughts on political Islam, political science and current affairs. He gelled these three subjects to encapsulate his strong views about how they affect society. Always ushering the masses towards sanity, pushing evolution against revolutions, standing firm with the voice of reason, Khurshid Nadeem’s thoughts and expressions are a unique blend of tradition and progressiveness; aiming straight at forces of oppression against the will of the people.

میں کیوں لکھتا ہوں؟

تجزیے میں صحت کے ساتھ غلطی کا پورا امکان ہے کہ انسانی عجز کا تقاضا ہے۔ اس کے دانستہ ارتکاب سے ہمیشہ اللہ تعالیٰ کی پناہ مانگنی چاہیے۔ معاشی ضرورت کا ایک مطلب یہ ہے کہ مجھے با دلِ نخواستہ سیاست جیسے مسائل پر لکھنا پڑتا ہے جو ہرگز میری ترجیح نہیں ہیں۔
