Summary
"In Memoirs of a Muhindi, Mansoor Ladha bears witness to what happens when nations turn against entire religious and ethnic groups. When Ugandan president Idi Amin expelled Africans of Indian descent from the country in 1972, he unleashed an intolerance that set off an exodus from the entire region. In Tanzania and Kenya, businesses were nationalized, properties taken, people harassed, and livelihoods upended. Mansoor Ladha, who was living in Nairobi at the time, had to decide whether to stay or go. Canada became his new home--where he found considerable success, as did the rest of the Ismaili community--while East Africa never recovered from its fit of bigotry. A newspaper columnist and award-winning journalist, Mansoor Ladha is the author of A Portrait in Pluralism: Aga Khan's Shia Ismaili Muslims. He lives in Calgary, Alberta."--
Summary
Mansoor Ladha recounts his life growing up in Tanzania as an African of Indian descent, and his life in Canada, to which he immigrated in the 1970s after Ugandan president Idi Amin's decision to expel Africans of Indian descent from that country in 1972 impacted the entire region.
