For those who know me and the kind of work that I do, you will know by now of my mentor and intellectual guide Professor Akbar Ahmed. Here is a nice biography of Professor Ahmed, who the renowned American historian Professor Stanley Wolpert called “the greatest scholar of Islam in America and the world… nobody else stands so high… he is the Dara Shikoh of modern Islamic leaders” (Pakistan Link, 30 December issue, 2011).
