Britain Refuses To Give Sanctuary to Asia Bibi Who Is In Hiding Having Been Threatened With Death after Her Release
Asia Bibi

The first she was aware of any trouble was hearing a low rumble of voices, then the terrifying chant: ‘Kill the Christian!’ She realised the men were coming for her and soon they appeared on a ridge. She had nowhere to run. In a panic, she stumbled, dizzy with fear, and a minute or so later felt hands roughly grab her arms and shoulders while another man fitted a leather noose around her neck. Hauled to her feet, she was paraded back to the village – led by the leather strap – and taken to a courtyard in the house of the village leader...

Judge Found Congress Lacked Authority to Enact the FGM Statute
Samantha Schmidt

Through her defence lawyer, Nagarwala has denied performing female genital mutilation and maintains she performed a religious procedure that did not involve cutting the genitalia. The doctors and Attar’s wife are members of a small Muslim sect known as the Dawoodi Bohra. Genital mutilation is the removal of all or part of a female’s genitals for nonmedical reasons. It is condemned by the United Nations and considered a human rights violation, but the practice is common for girls in parts of Asia, Africa and the Middle East....

One could retort that despite not being ‘honoured’ by the Almighty with the designation of an apostle, woman was found more deserving to be endowed with a divine characteristic of creation for which men were deemed weak and the fact that prophets are given birth by women, speaks volumes about their real stature in the eyes of God....

 

Coming to the role of media, while media has focus on radicalisation and violent extremism, it often fails to focus on female radicalisation. If it does, it mostly portrays women as victims, as being utilised by the male counterpart. This is true, but only partially. The active direct role of women in radicalisation also needs to be revealed and highlighted as this invisible force is deadlier than perceived....
