My Son the Fanatic ist eine Kurzgeschichte des englischen Autors Hanif Kureishi, die erstmals am März im New Yorker veröffentlicht wurde. Kureishi.

Here even Parvez describes their relationship as father and son, which shows that their relationship has become worse and worse. And there are many more examples of these contrary attitudes: While Parvez Raccoons he has lived a decent life p.

Sailor Moon Serie would also interpret their situation as generation conflict because they often have different attitudes towards life.
He implies his figure as the primary authority central to social organization and holds authority over women, children and property. He never discusses with his wife the problems he is facing.
Instead, he is much more open towards Bettina, a local prostitute. She's his friend, therapist, a trusty companion who knows all of his secrets and problems.
Theme of race and immigration. Most of the characters are dark-tanned: Parvez, Ali, Parvez's co-workers at the taxi firm, Parvez' s wife.
And the main protagonists fell as if they alienated, marginalized, humiliated in the new environment in which they immigrated.
Parvez is trying hard to fit in the new society. Prays, Lent, beard are all in the past. This is England. We have to fit in. Parvez is aware that the skin colour can be an obstacle to a normal life in England.
The Oriental people, uneducated and discriminated, are working at the worst posts in the country. Realizing that, he wants his son to become fully emancipated in the British society.
And Ali followed his father's advice: studied accounting, played an electric guitar, went swimming, played cricket, football, had an English girl for a girlfriend, but eventually his life came to a sudden twist: he throws away or gives to charity all of his possessions, breaks up the relationship with his girlfriend, puts an end to all contacts with his friends and replaces all that with the Koran canons.
Ali intends to dedicate his life to fight against the infidels in order to stop them from oppressing his people and Parvez is ready to agree on anything just to make Ali live his life the way he never got the chance to live it.
Both of them are in a pursuit of different dreams are extremely persistent in that race. Both of them are ready to give up on family,.
It will be the hardest thing I've ever done, but tonight I'm going to do it " ooyc. None of them gives space for compromise and their fanaticism culminates when the father, powerless to change his son's mind and so obsessed to bring him back to what he believes is the right path strikes him several times and Ali is neither evading the blows nor retaliating.
He doesn't feel fear, pain or suffering. He's above all that. Nothing can change his mind. His belief and obsession in the religious cause is so strong that absolutely nothing can distract him.

January 1, Rating: 3. January 1, Rating: 2. July 19, Full Review…. June 29, Rating: B. View All Critic Reviews Jul 17, Why is this movie in the category of Comedy?
It had some comedic moments borne out of real life situations, but it is far from a comedy. This film deals with some serious issues. Morality, religion, race, race "mixing," love, honor.
It is really quite stirring. With a family in dissaray, love lost, a son who has become a fanatic in the teachings that he the Father-Parvez [Om Puri] turned away from as a child Rachel Griffiths plays the "Hooker with a heart of gold," Not your typical Julia Roberts Pretty woman prostitute-by this I mean a character who is more real.
Who has real life problems and dreams and foibles. Parvez, With so many broken hearts and so many parts of a life and family to mend and protect Keep an open mind when you watch.

Shelves: college-years , great-stuff. A great short read i'm talking a few pages on Eastern meets Western culture. An Americanized father is offended and confused by his son's loyalty to Islam.
Mar 13, Marina rated it liked it. Yup, liked it. Just today, I spoke with a friend about the authority our parents have over us.
And then I read this, and it kind of fit. The father is in no position to tell his son to quit his religion and then to beat him up like that? Over a prostitute?
I think Ali was right about everything he told his father, he deserved it and had it coming. Will be interesting to interpret this story tomorrow in class, so I'll maybe come back to this review.
EDIT: So yeah, they're both fanatics. It slipped Yup, liked it. It slipped my mind that the son said he and the other Muslims are ready for a Jihad hahah But still, the alienation between family members is really well portrayed, the immigration prejudices, religious intolerance and the clash of cultures London's multiculturalism - it'a all very contemporary and interesting to read about.
Kureishi explores the father-son relationship, as Pakistani-American immigrant Parvez struggles to understand his son Ali's development of a strong attachment to Islam.
To begin with, Kureishi plays the generational and East-West clash for comedy, but the characters' estrangement becomes more serious and dramatic over time.
I liked this because it prov This short 29 pages story was first published in the collection Love In A Blue Time in ; I read the recent Faber Stories standalone edition.
I liked this because it provided food for thought in terms of intra-familial culture clashes and the nature of fanaticism, things that I haven't really had cause to think about a great deal.
I'm not sure it's a book I'll return to or which will stay with me for a long time, but I appreciated the stimulation it provided.
Jul 21, Lucy rated it really liked it. His father did multiple attempts to understand him and give him the benefit of the doubt.
He even grew a beard for Ali at some point in the story. His beating up Ali was a consequence of anger, feeling misunderstood and too much alcohol.
Parvez did want Ali to pick up his prayer mat and leave the house, though. So he has shown some fanatical traits as well.
But overall I feel like this was all because of feeling distanced from his son, which resulted in despair.
Aug 17, Srithi rated it really liked it. Good to read the perspective of a father of a son who slogged through his life for his son's education just to see him going religiously blind.
The brainwash which is done to the young minds impact them highly. Reading this and a few other texts as well i am to believe that religion has become just a tool of powerful people to rule the world.
In the name of religion many non-religious deeds are said and done. The best way is to be spiritual or whatever you choose to be, be in your limits and don't try your best to not hurt anybody.
Jul 02, Iris rated it did not like it. I think this story is well written and the moral is clear. Unfortunate I think this story is well written and the moral is clear.
Sep 17, Tobias Jacobsen rated it it was amazing Shelves: english-books-for-teaching , islam , short-stories , parenting , immigration.
I found the short story quite interesting. It's important to know that the story is set from the father's perspective - and that's very significant for the narrative.
It's seems rather authentic almost autobiographical and Hanif Kureishi portrays the interesting clash between asian and european cultures, lifestyles and different worldviews.
A taxi driver notices that his son is behaving oddly, discarding his possessions and becoming silently judgmental.
At first he thinks the problem is drugs, but the truth is that the young man is becoming a religious fanatic, and the father's own moral failings complicate his attempts to challenge this unwelcome development.
From but still feels topical. Shelves: classics , plays. This short story is a very important read. It showcases how the Eastern cultures feel they are being overshadowed and taken over by the Western cultures.
Now I am very interested in seeing the film to compare. Nov 29, Matt rated it really liked it. The son starts acting odd and the father tries to find out why.
Interesting turn of events. The end is not what you expect. Worth a quick reading. Feb 23, Lee Peckover rated it really liked it.
