What to make of Tarek Fatah?

Yeah, I watched him a little on youtube but couldnt really follow the complicated urdu very well. I think he makes some good points but I would guess a little out of touch and therefore not so relevant in Pakistan. It's not like he talking about any kind of alternative ideology. I actually follow Pakistani things like this a lot, but Tarek Fatah is not really on my radar for some reason.
I dont know exactly what you mean by Pakistani roots but if you want to learn about Pakistani History you should probably start with the term Aryan, for which you will need to look at Indo-European Migrations (Out of India Theory), Rigveda, Vedic Sanskrit, Indus Valley Civilization (this will cover ancient history), look at Kalasha Culture and Religion (this is very very ancient) and you can also look at similarities between Pushto, Pakistani and Sikh culture.
These are the things that helped me understand about my roots, if you will.
I think Fatah is not too knowledgeable in these areas.
