Sadiq is a Pakistani American. He has a love-hate relationship with America and gives himself up to hatred when America declares what he thinks is war on Islam.
He leads an Islamist group aiming to nuke America. As he is about to bomb Washington, he discovers how much America is in him.
His conversion from an Islamist to a true Muslim and nationalist American is the novel’s story, set mainly in the U.S., Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India.
The story takes the War to a victory for both the sides, while Islamists discover secularism, democracy, and globalization are concepts as much rooted in Islam as in the West, and must be put into operation in the entire Muslim world.
