"That’s why ISIS is not just an Islam problem and not just a “root causes” problem. ISIS is a product of decades of failed governance in the Arab world and Pakistan and centuries of a calcification of Arab Islam. They feed off each other. Those who claim it’s just one or the other are dead wrong."

Story
Tagline
I don't have a clever tagline
Introduction
I am the right Saadia, a biryani-loving Pakistani transplant in Canada. I take photos of things I find interesting. I have lately started writing down interesting ideas on the tiniest yellow post-it notes I could find - ideas that pop up in my head only when I am trying to focus on something else. One day I will write a book, probably in Urdu to do my mother proud. Maybe I will write about my family's annual camping trips to the wonderful provincial parks of Ontario where we go for two nights but prepare for like we're going for battle.
