Most Indians today may not be aware that the national flag was designed by a Muslim woman, Surayya Tayabji, an active member of the Indian National Congress. Jawaharlal Nehru assigned this task to Tayabji, and it was her idea to replace the symbol of the charkha used and popularised by Mahatma Gandhi with that of Ashoka Chakra at the centre of the flag. Tayabji felt that the charkha, a symbol of the Congress party, might appear partisan....

 

Muslim Veil Ban in the European States Questions ‘Freedom of Religious Expression’ And ‘Sensible Living’
Eeshah Omer

However, in regards to the Muslim veil ban debate in the European states over the years, has the recent decision of the EU’s highest court of ruling been able to achieve the perfect balance between ‘freedom of religious expression’ and ‘sensible living’? Most can say that the beginning of 2018 has seen a significant step forward into the West’s move to outlaw Muslim headscarves and veils, in public....

People often referred to Jahanara Begum as Faqirah (ascetic) due to her devotion to Sufism. She suggested that she and her brother Dara Shikoh were the only descendants of Timur to truly embrace Sufism. She commissioned translations and commentaries on many works of classic literature. Jahanara was the disciple of Mullah Shah Badakhshi, who initiated her into the Qadiriyya Sufi Order in 1641. ....

If Prince Mohammed cannot take the heat for lifting the driving ban, one can only imagines how much harder it will be for him to deliver on tougher promises. Chief among them is getting rid of the guardianship law, which says that every woman must have a male guardian — husband, father, brother, even a son — who can make critical decisions on her behalf, including applying for a passport, travelling outside the country, studying abroad on a government scholarship and marrying....

 

Media Attacks on Maryam Pougetoux Show How Muslim Women Are Prevented From Engaging In French Public Life
Rokhaya Diallo

“She wears a particular veil that covers all her hair, the neck: a hijab”. Last Tuesday on French TV two men – a pundit, Thomas Legrand, and celebrity host, Yann Barthès – described in detail a woman’s outfit before labelling it “the opposite of feminism”. Few people in France appeared surprised. For the past two weeks the hijab has once more been at the centre of a national debate that has verged on hysteria....

Muslim Jurists Are Wrong, Husbands Cannot Beat Wives
T.O. Shanavas MD, New Age Islam

We, Muslims, must ask “Does anyone know a woman who spot ‘beauty and dignity’ in spousal brutality?”  Probably, Women suffering from the abnormal mental condition called masochism may find “beauty and dignity” in it.  There is no way to unmask the “beauty or dignity” in the jurists’ license of spousal abuse hinging on the verse.  There is not one incident in the life of Prophet (s) when he beat or treated disrespectfully any of his wives.  And if the Muslim’s claim of Islam being a liberator of women ought to be valid, Muslims must reject the jurists’ sanction of shameful act of wife beating by husbands.....

Arresting Feminists Doesn’t Inspire Faith in Saudi Arabia’s Much-Hyped Reform Agenda
Simon Henderson

His reforms were always likely to provoke opposition from within Saudi Arabia’s male-dominated, hierarchical society, which follows a strict interpretation of Islam. The apparent need to arrest women activists suggests that MbS is having to rethink his grand plans. In Saudi Arabia, MbS is sometimes likened to Saddam Hussein, the executed former dictator of Iraq. ...

‘Intersectional Feminism’ Proves That the Feminist Movement Is Often Exclusive and Largely White
Faima Bakar

Feminism often feels like it only accepts those who look like they subscribe to its ideals. Someone in a Burqa/Niqab isn’t seen as having agency therefore is pitied or only accepted if their fight is against the religious imposition. A Muslim woman who not only wears a headscarf, but a Burqa, a Niqab, and/or who has conservative views about sex and sexuality, is not usually accepted into feminist groups...
