Moni Mohsin (1963- ) is a British-Pakistani writer who gained international acclaim for her satirical column in The Friday Times that she developed into three successful novels. She also authored two more novels: The End of Innocence (2008) and The Impeccable Integrity of Ruby R (2020). Her work is inextricably linked to Pakistan and exposes its social inequities and hidden hypocrisies.

Religious tolerance was etched into the country’s social landscape to a far greater degree than it is today (Mohsin, “Lest We Forget”, 2013).
