Empowered Muslim Women: Islam Is Her Strength
Moin Qazi

Western thinkers and practitioners must reconsider their assumptions about the role of Islam in women’s rights and approach this topic with a more nuanced lens. They must understand the necessity of recognising and consciously accepting the broad cultural differences between western and non-western conceptions of autonomy as well as respecting social standards that reflect non-western values....


How Terrorist Groups Use Women as Suicide Bombers
Sinem Cengiz

Why are they preferred as suicide bombers to men? Firstly, women can hide bombs and explosives better under traditional clothing such as the Burqa or Abaya, or pretend to be pregnant in order to avoid security detection. Secondly, it is believed by terrorist groups that attacks perpetrated by women attract greater media attention than male-perpetrated missions due to their dramatic effect....

Uniform Civil Code Vs Triple Talaq
A G Noorani

Before Partition, Muslims were offered solemn pledges of respect for their personal law; by Gandhi on October 28, 1931, the Congress in October 1937 and by Nehru on April 6, 1937. Gandhi offered “protection by specific provisions” in the Constitution. Instead, Article 44 of the Constitution was enacted. “The state shall endeavour to secure for the citizens a uniform civil code throughout the territory of India.”...

Sindh Criminal Law against Forced Conversion and Marriage is Consistent With the Qur’anic Message – Any Muslim Quarter Opposing It Is Liable To Persecution for Abetting Criminal Customs
Muhammad Yunus, New Age Islam

It supplements the conclusion of the exercise with a commentary on how forced conversion of a non-Muslims woman into Islam followed by her forced marriage violates the Qur’anic rights of a Muslim woman to chose her own mate and the Qur’anic spirit of showing love and mercy in conjugal relationship. Thus, forcing a non-Muslim woman into marriage after forcefully converting her is antithetical to the Qur’anic message – a mockery of the Qur’an, a grave sin and a an abhorrent and violent offence that goes against the spirit of tolerance, peace and respect for all religions and persons, irrespective of their religion as espoused by the Qur’an....

A Muslim Woman’s Biggest Fear Is the Reckless Use of Triple Talaq
Syeda Hameed

These women were also worried that their husbands would remarry without leaving them with Mehr or maintenance. The fact that the Quran lays down very strict conditions both for Talaq and remarriage is indication that the woman's rights must be protected. It was also a pointer in the direction of incremental empowerment of women until their status became equal to that of men....

Pitted against this view is the idea – reflected in media discourse – that the courts are the only forums where such women can and should obtain justice. This interpretation follows and reinforces the much stronger assumption that Indian Muslim communities, led by the Ulema, dogmatically oppose gender equality and that no change is possible from within. This assumption is fundamentally wrong....

There were divides even within the orthodox, conservative groups in Islam. This is because people realised that triple Talaq is simply atrocious.

Men come with their daughters, who have been victims of triple Talaq to lawyers, they have felt the pain and seen the sadness, the injustice, that triple Talaq brings about....
