But many Pakistanis have found Dr Akhtar's book unpalatable.

Pakistani children have no access to sex education
He tried to tone down the title - Sex Education for Muslims is the name of the English version of the book, in Urdu the title is Special Problems for Young People.

But that has not been enough to appease some.

"I have had threats. Even other doctors have accused me of acting like a maverick, a quack," he says.

"A provincial politician even hauled me into his office and said I was encouraging pornography. I explained I was doing nothing of the sort."

Anything the antisemite bunch might say about this? No, of course! Why, because Israel cannot be blamed, so there is no interest for them to criticise it.
