Moorthy Muthuswamy was born and brought up in India where he was exposed to political Islam and jihad. His journey as a scientist began in 1979 when he enrolled in Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani (India) to pursue a graduate degree in physics.
 
Even well before the massive flow of funds from the likes of Saudi Arabia, certain attributes of Islam, the author noticed growing up, was driving fellow Indian Muslims into backwardness and violent radicalism. Fiery and hateful political speeches, a main course of the Friday mosque sermons in India have had a history of instigating rioting by Muslim mobs, and consequently, led to countless property damages and the loss of lives. 

He came to America in 1984 and went on to receive a doctorate in nuclear physics at Stony Brook University, New York. The author has published well over twenty peer-reviewed papers in nuclear and radiation physics and has held faculty positions in leading American academic institutions. In 1998, as the primary author, Dr. Muthuswamy was the first to show that radiation field aperture optimization technique can be an alternative to the then widely used and yet an inefficient technique known as beamlet-based optimization of radiotherapy beams. The technique proposed by the author has evolved to become a basis of modern implementation of Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).

Increasingly concerned about the escalating Islamic threat to his native India, in the 1990s, Dr. Muthuswamy started to research this topic. Since 1998, he has extensively published on various aspects of political Islam.

Early on, the author observed a startling phenomenon: in every Muslim-majority region of South Asia, since 1947, non-Muslim minority populations had been systematically decimated through deliberate processes, while in India, Muslims grew to become a significant minority. It didn't matter that the Muslims and the non-Muslims alike, shared culture, ethnicity, language, cuisine, and history, in these regions. This hitherto unknown data suggests that India faces an existential threat from political dynamics driven by Islam and that such a dynamics is a modern manifestation of what is commonly described in history texts as "Islamic Conquest."

In his book Defeating Political Islam, the author gives a fascinating narrative of the multi-faceted process now underway to conquer India itself for Islam.

Like most Americans the author too was taken aback by the audacity of the dastardly 9/11 attacks, although not surprised by the intent. These attacks and the subsequent American response made it clear to the author that his adopted country too needs to ramp-up its know-how of the new threat.

The intellectual challenge of solving what is clearly an existential problem, too, has continued to drive his research -- and led to this book. Specifically, the physicist-author designed this book in order to help set forth processes that comprehensively neutralize the radical Islamic threat.

The author resides in America.
