Whiter Than White

The daughter of the Land of Pure

by

Written by seasoned police officer and accomplished writer, J. J. BAloch, Whiter Than?White is the story of Hoor, an ordinary woman caught up in the throes of extraordinary circumstances. Hoor fosters her faith and cultivates confidence in her own destiny, protecting her womanhood with the tenacity of a wounded mother lion against the system that engulfs her world. Whiter Than White details Hoor’s journey from growing up in a hostile system in Pakistan and rising to the precipice of greatness and fame as the story unfolds. Whiter Than White is unique in its approach to the telling of Hoor’s story. While detailing her personal journey, J J. BAloch comprehensively addresses the different issues of women in sub-continental set-ups, specifically Pakistan. Drawing on the mistreatment of women and women’s rights, this novel sheds light on a society that considers women a symbol of misfortune, where they are arrested, prosecuted, imprisoned and sentenced without being involved in any violation of the law, and where they are presented as sexual tools for the pleasure of men, discriminated against on the basis of their gender. This novel touches on the sensitive systems of society and state, which are designed to perpetuate the status quo of male dominance, orthodoxy, discriminations, biases, intolerance, extremism and hatred against women. J. J. BAloch’s experience working in the police, specifically relating to crimes against women, adds a layer of authenticity to his writing that will be enjoyed by those who enjoy feminist literature and who are looking to deepen their understanding of women’s rights in other societies.

Book Publishing is in process and in 2017 it will be available in book markets.

J.J. Baloch has produced a very powerful novel which paints the gender pulse of Pakistan society in a very critical and insightful way. Indeed a very soul-stirring story with exploring the true potential of Pakistani women being very positive and patriotic. Worth reading and outstanding contribution to raising the flag of gender cause in a conservative society where the woman victimization is commonplace. Hussain

Though I have not gone through this book - some peeps only, yet it conveyed me a strong message of a traumatised woman.... a beautiful depiction of a peculiar situation which otherwise I felt only from Khalil Gibran n Homer. Khalil does zoom in the whole situation . Homer, who wrote Odyssey/Iliads 800-900 years BC, does the same work though his works were more mythical. Odysseus embarks on a voyage to fight out with the Troy n faces excruciatingly tough ordeals afterwards. So does write Mr. Jiskani. A women opens her eyes in a repressive society, does not cave in to obsolete norms n fights out till the last. In this novel, a sort of vicarious feelings scale up n one feels as if an audacious woman talks. A time will come when people call Jiskani Neo-Homer of Pakistan. The work of a writer is hardly appreciated in his age. It is the time which sorts the cream out of the scum. He boils down the whole vile situation which pervades in this landscape - a thought provoking novel that stirs a human mind up n leaves it agitating for a good deal of time. Many question marks leave a human both irate n ruminative. A fantastic book indeed. Can we say hats off to the writer ? Some presume yes. The rest may go for a critical appreciation. Anyway, no one can snatch the inherent quality of a good piece of writing. It is a fait accompli.

This is very inspirational work for novel readers specially females who want to know about the power of cultural constructions of gender, love, freedom and the real powers inherent in women who can work wonders and who can fight to the finish all deepseated deprivations and widespread discriminations grown in a societal frameworks and cultural roots encompassing the statutory and legal philosophies of what is good and what is bad for whom-a women is the true architect of the men; she does not only give birth to him but also shape his character and make his life a success but the man still lives in the grand fantasy of a life without woman who runs in his very essence of the existence. A wonderful novel, a amazing voice and an inspiring message by a man who see the woman a hope for humanity and who trust the woman to change the course of everything inhuman in the age of technology where no one can simply be deprived of what is inevitable and what is real. Accolades for JJ Baloch.

Novel of JJ Baloch is close to ground reality of Pakistani women’s sufferings and is a writing on the wall for those who have long ignored them. Mr Baloch has created a powerful voice for gender awareness. I would suggest this to all feminist to go through such a riveting story which tends to offer an inspiration to all struggling women in Pakistan. Hats off to JJ Baloch
