Currently, he earns a living by trying to persuade politicians, judges, police officers, lawyers and bureaucrats to change themselves. He was born in beautiful Lahore, and mostly lives there. His most recent book is an acclaimed and multiple award-winning critical legal history of postcolonial justice systems. This is his first novel.

1857 ce: Mir Sahib, a wandering minstrel, traverses the realms of human deception even as a rebellion against the British Raj is advancing across India.

2009 ce: In contemporary Lahore, the widow Rafiya Begum navigates legal complexities in order to secure her rights and fend off predatory charlatans.

2084 ce: A scholar revisits the known history of the cataclysmic events that led to world domination by ruthless international water conglomerates.

Across epochs and civilizations, these are intensely personal journeys that investigate the legitimacy of religion and authority, and chronicle the ascent of dissent. Snuffing Out the Moon is a dazzling debut novel that is at once a cry for freedom and a call for resistance.
