Considered the “most original anti-imperialist analyst of Asia and Africa” by late, preeminent cultural critic Edward Said, Pakistani journalist Iqbal Ahmad uncovered oppression around the world. Ahmad joined Frantz Fanon and the National Liberation Front in Algeria during the early 1960s, and while earning his PhD at Princeton, he was one of the first fellows at the Washington Institute of Policy Studies. Due to his anti-war views, Ahmad and a group of Catholic activists were indicted in 1971 for plotting to kidnap then-National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger; the case resulted in a mistrial. Before his death in 1999, Ahmad helped open a Pakistani university and taught at various American institutions, including Cornell University. The Eqbal Admad Centre for Public Education was created in his honor.
