Read Wajahat Ali ’07 on Salon.com
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, May 7, 2010
King Hall alum Wajahat Ali '07 seems to be everywhere these days. His play Domestic Crusaders is gaining critical acclaim, he's contributing regularly to the UK Guardian, and now he's all over Salon Media with not one, but two high-profile features.
Waj wrote in an e-mail: "Salon asked me to write an unorthodox piece with my own personal style on how it feels to be Pakistani Muslim re: the terror suspect being... a Pakistani Muslim."
Here is "What I understand about Faisal Shahzad" on Salon.com: http://www.salon.com/life/feature/2010/05/06/pakistani_terrorist_personal_essay/index.html
Waj's second piece satirizes the South Park censorship controversy. Don't click if you're offended by South Park-style humor! http://www.salon.com/entertainment/tv/feature/2010/04/28/south_park_satire?source=newsletter
