Abstract

The political and theological scenes took a drastic change in the Muslim Ummah of Asia and to some extent in Europe and America after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the twin towers. It seriously affected the Muslims populated regions and the Diasporas stretching from East to West (Solomn, 2007)[i]. Apparently, Islam faced many threats from the secular West in the form of socio-political sanctions. However, this catastrophic incident also ignited in Muslims to review their Muslims identity and to launch an organized effort to establish the real identity of Islam. The undertaken investigation is an attempt in this regard that how the protagonist Changez in Mohsin Ahmad’s  “Reluctant Fundamentalist” shapes into a Islamic fundamentalist after 9/11 attacks and  comes back to Pakistan although he was a having a promising career in America that time.
