Yes, Tariq Ali is

Quite.

Incidentally, Tariq Ali, who is not a practicing or even
believing Muslim,
 is an opponent of fundamentalism:

and he did not "flee" Pakistan; he organized demonstrations
against
the military dictatorship there so his parents shipped him off to
Oxford.  Not that fleeing that dictatorship would be in any way
wrong.
