Welcome to Inside Sectarianism! This blog is meant to serve as a resource for those interested in understanding sectarianism beyond news headlines and security discussions. The blog covers sectarian relations within Islam and with a focus on Pakistan. The idea is to invite a critical look at events and developments that are often automatically labeled and understood as “sectarian”. The blog seeks to place these events in context and evaluate different perspectives. The information and reflections in this blog come from a variety of sources, including translations from local newspaper, personal observations, memoirs and literature. Relevant news and analysis about other regions and issues that are thematically or historically connected to "sectarianism" in Pakistan are also covered here. Please feel free to share your thoughts.
