“Fear and Loathing”: read about Isaac Schrödinger’s situation

September 27, 2006 at 12:35 pm (Blogs, Islam, Islamism, Pakistan, Persian, Personal)

I encourage you to read what Isaac Schrödinger has written about his situation: “Fear and Loathing in The Land of the Pure”. (Possible translation into Urdu: پاک سرزمین میں ڈر اور نفرت , pāk sarzamīn maiN Darr awr nafrat.)

Note: “The Land of the Pure” refers to Pakistan, which name comes from Persian: (پاک, pāk, “pure”) and (إستان, istān, “land”), giving us (پاکستان, pākistān, “Pakistan”), “the Land of the Pure” or “the Pure Land”. The latter is a very common ending to indicate the land of something, such as Hindūstān, Turkmenistān, Uzbekistān, and so on.
