Education can play a role in preventing violence against women and girls. Today, one in three women is subjected to violence, and more than half of all victims of sexual assault are girls under the age of 16. In Bangladesh, 66% of girls marry by the time they are 18. Early marriage often prevents continued education for girls. While there are many contributing factors to gender-based violence, one of the most mitigating factors is women’s education…..

When nations of the world – advanced, developing and underdeveloped – are striving hard to make or keep their countries drug-free, polio-free, malaria-free, tuberculosis-free, cholera-free, and diphtheria-free, etc and taking steps to counter chronic poverty and illiteracy, our society and legal system continue to focus most diligently on making Pakistan a women-free society. ….

“They thought that the bullet would silence us. But they failed. And out of that silence came thousands of voices. The terrorists thought they would change my aims and stop my ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage were born ... So here I stand. So here I stand, one girl among many.”….

The heart of Islam, and the heart of the Prophet, was to liberate women from the tyranny experienced in the Jahiliya. Unfortunately, it seems the Qur’an’s message has been overlooked. In an attempt to follow the laws of Allah and please Him, many men in the Muslim world have missed the spirit of the instruction. The Qur’an’s words have been twisted…..

Their strain of Islam contradicts major tenets of the traditional faith and offends many believers. But the Saudis have been successfully exporting it, financed by whopping oil profits, since the early 1970s. According to its own figures, the kingdom spent more than $80 billion between 1973 and 2002 creating a worldwide network of Wahhabi mosques, Islamic centers, madrasas and charities. The Afghan Taliban is among the recipients of that money….

To ban or not to ban: Britain is facing the Burqa issue with a streak of pragmatism, and there is currently little appetite from the center-right coalition government for a ban Unlike the French, Britain has taken a fluid approach to difference and the multicultural character of its society, and in the current circumstances, it is unclear – perhaps impossible – to establish where the limit for "difference" lies….

Mothers and workingwomen know more than anybody what it means to drive their own car and have full control over our lives. As a teacher of a new generation of young female nurses who regard me with respect and as a role model, I find it incredibly humiliating to travel 70 minutes a day with a complete stranger to reach my workplace and then return home. What is worse is that this same stranger has complete control over the time I arrive and leave work……

 

Ms. Yousafzai did not win the Nobel Prize. That went to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Malala's Fight for a Modern Pakistan

Pakistan’s leaders have been in a deep state of denial about their national priorities for a long time. Religious extremism and terrorism are often not seen as a serious threat for a nation that has, since its inception in 1947, focused on acquiring military parity with its much larger neighbour, India. Instead of seeing the Taliban as brutes fighting modernity….

The Untold Story of another ‘Malala’
Omer Zaheer Meer

This young ‘Malala’ brutalised was Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi. Her town is Al-Mahmudiyah, Iraq and the brutal animals forcing her and several other girls off education and then committing the monstrous acts were five of the six soldiers from a check-post near her home belonging to the 502nd infantry regiment of the US Army....

 

Nothing has changed in the one year since then. Ehsanullah’s successor, Shahidullah Shahid, recently told a group of journalists during a rare interview at an undisclosed location in Waziristan that Malala was not attacked for pursuing education but for going against Islam. He then vowed that another assassination attempt would be made the moment an opportunity presented itself....
