Lawrence Wright has an article in The New Yorker titled The Rebellion Within about a key Islamic thinker moving away from violence. Then, see The Unraveling by Peter Bergen and Paul Cruickshank, in The New Republic. These threads are put together by Stephen Fidler in Financial Times. And, James Traub has an article in The New York Times about a pioneering liberal effort in Pakistan: The Lawyers' Crusade.
Steve Jobs and others have worried that `people don't read anymore'. The Internet has, indeed, changed reading habits; it does seem like there is more consumption of article-length pieces rather than book-length pieces. But the Lawrence Wright article linked to above is all of 13,866 words (!) or roughly a fifth of a good sized book. I know of no outlet in India that would carry pieces of this length.
