Munawar Anees, the respected author of Islam and Biological Futures and editor of the journal Periodica Islamica, has been a long-time friend of NPQ. He has also been a close friend and speechwriter of Anwar Ibrahim, Malaysia's deputy prime minister.
Shortly after we asked Dr. Anees to contact Anwar
Ibrahim for an article for this issue of NPQ, both the former deputy prime
minister and Anees were arrested under Malaysia's Internal Security Act.
