I am Inayat Bunglawala and I also regularly blog at the Guardian’s Comment is Free website. I have set up this little corner of the web in order to share my love of books, movies, current affairs and gossip! I work as a senior network engineer to try and put food on the table so you may see me extolling the virtues of Cisco every now and then, but don’t let that bother you. And do join in…!

Oh, the pictures above are from Bolton, the lovely town where I was born and grew up. The one on the left shows the old junction between Halliwell Road and Blackburn Road…The photo on the right is of some houses on Halliwell Road. I used to walk up that long road every weekday to school.

      So you know first-hand how the press can easily make up things and get away with them and destroy people’s reputation. No hope that the Leveson Enquiry would expose such truths. Do you follow Medialens bro Inayat? What’s your opinion of them?

    Hello Inayat,

    I just wanted to say that having read about you today in article in the Sun which led me to doing some reading due to wholeheartedly agreeing with the stance you have taken. Really I just wanted to say thank you for standing up in this case and many others that I am now aware of and being such a voice of reason.

    I look forward to continue reading more from you in the future.

    Kind regards

    Dear Inayat, wondered whether you had read The Study Quran: A New Translation and Commentary by Caner K. Dagli, Hossein Nasr, Joseph E. B. Lumbard, Maria Massi Dakake, and Mohammed Rustom and whether you thought it was worth recommending.
