The paper considers the question of what it might mean to resist the "imaginative geographies" of the War on Terror through the reading of the bestselling novel The Reluctant Fundamentalist by M. Hamid. The A. argues that critical attempts at resisting these geographies often assume and reproduce an understanding of time as linear and progressive, an idea of time which makes these geographies possible. We need to revisit the concept of imagination to explore a way of thinking coexistence in world politics that cannot be understood within a unifying temporal framework
