Triple Talaq: Ban This Un-Islamic Practice And Bring In A Uniform Civil Code
M Muneer

A uniform civil code will bridge the chasm between innocent Muslims who blindly follow the clerics, and the Right-wing fringe. Muslims should welcome the idea of joining the mainstream by embracing a uniform civil code. Parliament must seriously think about reformative laws that will benefit everyone....

Ibtihaj Muhammad: A New Look For Barbie
Rafia Zakaria

But none of the people in the Muslim world, not the evangelists prescribing the Hijab nor the non-wearing faithful who have irked them, are particularly important to the debate as it pertains to a Barbie doll. First of all, in a world wracked by war and displacement, where children starve and wash ashore dead, the promise of a doll, let alone a very expensive one, whether or not she wears a Hijab, is not anything within the realm of possibility....

Muslim Women Must Speak for Ourselves
Mona Eltahawy

Predictably, both the rock and the hard place tried to hijack the voices of those Muslim women. The Islamophobic right said the women would be better off if they left Islam. The Muslim men warned the women that Islamophobes would use their complaints against Muslim men. But the women weren’t deterred. They continued to insist that they could speak for themselves, with power and humour....
