In the prophet's time, a marriage was contracted between the bride and groom in the presence of witnesses. Terminating that contract through divorce was even easier — one party, man or woman, could do it themselves. Imams were not involved, nor was there any requirement to specify one side as being "at fault". A no-fault divorce between the prophet's cousin Zainab and adopted son Zayd is explicitly mentioned in the Quran....

Asifa was Brutalised Because She Was a Muslim; Period
Arshad Alam, New Age Islam

Asifa’s brutalised body was not the first, nor will it be the last witness to the madness of Uber nationalism. Many years ago, there was Surat and many years before that, there was Kunan Poshpora. The victims, some dead and some alive, are still waiting for justice. Only time will tell whether our sense of outrage and morality will stop at Asifa or whether she will become the moment of critical introspection about our collective certainties....

The Kathua Rape-And-Murder Case: Why See It Through The Prism Of Religion?
Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

In fact, the brutal rape and murder of the 8-year-old Asifa Bano in Kathua was a premeditated crime to particularly target and terrorize the Bakarwal ethnic group. It was different from most rape cases in India, but quite identical to what the ISIS did with the young Yazdi girls in Iraq and Syria to terrorize the entire Yazdi community in their previously occupied territories. Thus, India witnessed first of its kind rape which was viciously planned as a tool of war to subjugate an ethnic group in Kashmir....

Can Muslim Feminism Find a Third Way?
Ursula Lindsey

In Muslim countries, laws governing inheritance are derived from verses in the Quran; men generally receive larger, sometimes double, the shares that women get. Distant male relatives can supersede wives, sisters and daughters, leaving women not just bereaved but also destitute. Raising the issue of inheritance and inequality has long been considered blasphemous...

A Husband for My Daughter
Fahd Al-Ahmadi

In our conservative society, a girl does not have many options when it comes to choosing her future husband. Of course, she and her family can reject the first and second proposals, but if they refuse the third her chances of getting married will thin out. She will have a reputation that she has been rejecting all possible suitors. The chances of girls getting proposals are not very high if not totally scant in Saudi society because of the segregation of sexes in public places....
