“What do you mean by being free? Freedom for me is not something that you can roam anywhere you want. Freedom must be within the definition of a certain framework. Because I don’t think we are able to run around and get everything. That freedom means nothing. You must really frame yourself where you want to go and what you want to do”.
Shafi, a young Malaysian fundamentalist in V.S. Naipaul, Among the Believers. An Islamic Journey, Penguin, London 1981, pp. 216-217.
