An intellectually gifted young man sets out on a quest to avoid jihad, tries to eliminate poverty and spread education amongst the poor of the country
Akhtar Allahabadi announces the release of “Life of Akbar: Part One ( Life with Taliban)” (published by AuthorHouse UK), an epic tale of determination and devotion of an intellectually gifted young man who sets out on a quest to avoid jihad, tries to eliminate poverty and spread education amongst the poor of the country.
While growing up in a village in a mountainous region spread across both Afghan and Pakistani territories, Akbar Khan transforms into an understanding and intelligent boy who is devoted to his studies of the Quran and resolving problems. In a land where no one argues with the Taliban, his parents do their best to keep him from being thrust into the jihad against the enemies of Islam, for Akbar is highly regarded in their village and in demand for his wisdom beyond his years.
When he is 13, Akbar notices Jameela. Almost immediately, Akbar becomes determined to follow his heart and make her his through marriage, no matter how long it takes. As he begins to work on making his dream come true, a chain of unexpected events unfold, and how he maneuvers his own destiny through the dangers of life amongst the Taliban and how kismet helps him escape to a near-normal life and happiness.
“This story is placed in a very important area of the world. The culture and challenges are unknown and very interesting. A great deal of action has taken place in and around the Afghan people. No other book has taken up such a story like this,” Allahabadi says. When asked what he wants readers to take way from the book, he answers, “An understanding that these people are as good and tough as anyone else.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.authorhouse.com/en-gb/bookstore/bookdetails/828025-life-of-akbar
