Description

As a child, all Aatish Taseer ever had of his father was his photograph in a browning silver frame.

Raised by his Sikh mother in Delhi, his father, a Pakistani Muslim, remained a distant figure.

It was a fractured upbringing which left Aatish with many questions about his own identity.

Stranger to History is the story of the journey Aatish made to try to understand what it means to be Muslim in the twenty-first century.

Starting from Istanbul, Islam's once greatest city, he travels to Mecca, its most holy, and then home through Iran and Pakistan.

Ending in Lahore, at his estranged father's home, on the night Benazir Bhutto was killed, it is also the story of Aatish's own divided family over the past fifty years.
