Malala Yousafzai: Dead Woman Walking
Chris Cork

Fame and a public persona came early to Malala who, let us not forget, did not ask to be shot in the head by the Taliban — and there are those who still believe the whole thing was somehow faked anyway. She was in her early teens and although she had some small fame in Pakistan she cannot have been prepared for what followed when she opened her eyes in a Birmingham hospital.....

Rigid interpretation of the veil as a metaphor for obscurantism is recent, thanks to Wahhabism and the Salafi movement that obfuscated the free spirit of Islam and misconstrued Quranic teachings. Even Prophet Muhammad never advocated that women must wear a Hijab. Bukhari’s Hadith (compilation of Prophet Muhammad’s teachings) mentions a specific teaching with a story attached. A woman approached Prophet Muhammad and asked whether she should wear a veil after marriage. The Prophet answered that whether married or unmarried, she was not required to hide her face from strangers or male gazers because those determined to gaze at women would continue to gaze, anyway, whether or not one wore a veil. Prophet Muhammad added that the sacredness of an uncovered face is its Hijab.....

 

How Religious Female Soldiers Are Transforming the Israel Defence Forces
Ben Caspit

Don't fool yourselves, the rabbis were told at that meeting. According to a military source, the rabbis were also told that they were not the ones to come up with the idea of separate barracks and restrooms for men and women in the army. The order has existed in the IDF since day one. The chief of staff promised to enforce this order more vigorously and ensure that there are no exceptions. The rabbis also received an assurance that the army is not being run according to the agenda of feminist organizations, nor does it subject itself to such groups. .....

Vice-President's Wife, Salma Ansari, Calls For An In-Depth 'Qura'nic Reading', But Will The Sunni-Hanafi Ulema Rethink Their Stand?
Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

“If you’ve read the Qur'an, then you can find the solution there itself. There is no such rule in Qur'an. They have just made it up.... You read the Qur'an in Arabic and but you don’t read the translation. You accept whatever the Maulanas (clerics) or the Mullas say. Read the Qur'an and Hadith and see what Rasool (Prophet Muhammad) had said”. Thus, Salma Ansari tried to ignite a flame of desire in the Muslim women to comprehend the Qur'an by themselves and introspect on its texts related to the talaq. Notably, a complete and comprehensive chapter (Surah) in the Qur'an is named as "al-Talaq".....

In the final analysis, the ban on the Burqa is a one sided debate. Muslim women- the object of the ban- have effectively been excluded from it. However I, as a Muslim woman, would like to put my point across: before speaking in my name, and trying to liberate me from the age old practice and supposedly orthodox traditional interpretations of the verses of Qur’an, I would like to point out and affirm that I reserve the right to what I wear!....

Pakistan's Women Jihadis: A Reality
Sara Mahmood

First, women have acted as “facilitators and fundraisers,” which was evident when women sold off their jewellery to support the Taliban in Swat, gaining inspiration from Mullah Fazlullah’s notorious radio broadcasts. Second, women are the nucleus of the domestic sphere in the case of Pakistan’s patriarchal society. Thus, terrorist organizations envision women as the “domestic radicalisers,” indoctrinating their children and networks of women with the violent and extremist ideology of the group at hand. In 2014, students from Jamia-e-Hafsa, the women’s wing of the Lal Masjid (Red Mosque) in Islamabad....
