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....

Triple Talaq: Muslim Personal Law Board’s Stand Is Un-Islamic
Syed Ubaidur Rahman

At another place, Quran talks about the divorce being twice and then the couple should decide if they have to live together. If they decide to separate, it orders them to separate amicably and not allow the husband to usurp the lawful rights a woman has in such circumstances.  At another place, Quran asks the family to arbiter if the differences between husband and wife have become irreconcilable.  Quran nowhere allows the mindless act of Triple Talaq in a single sitting. ...

 

It’s Time for Obituary of Instant Triple Talaq
Moin Qazi

In Islam, marriage is a solemn contract (Meesaaqan Ghaleeza) and both parties have equal rights to revoke this covenant in accordance with Quranic procedure if the other party breaches it. Talaq is expected to be exercised only under extenuating circumstances. It allows for an exit when the marriage breaks down but only under certain conditions. The Talaq-e-Ehsan or Talaq-e-Sunnah, the only form approved by the Prophet, is has an elaborate procedure that spreads over three months and it is only after the completion of the third month that marital relationship ceases....

In Islam, Every Day Belongs To the Women
Murtadha Gusau

Our daughters have a right to education. They also have a right to legitimate work, to own businesses and to develop their God-given talents so that all humankind benefits. They have a right to be loved and respected no less than our sons. We seem to forget that the Mother of the Believers, Khadijah, the Prophet’s first wife was also the first Muslim. She comforted him in his moments of distress. She reassured him in his moments of self-doubt. “Cover me, cover me!” he pleaded, shaking with fear and terrified after his first encounter with Jibril....

 

As for her fears that she might be taken as a concubine by the vengeful Aurangzeb, Nadira Banu Begum was not far from the truth, as the Emperor summoned both the surviving slave girls of Dara and made the Georgian slave girl Udaipuri Mahal his concubine.
