Islam, Women and Feminism

The commandment for mankind's – including woman kind for maintaining dignity as given in the Book, has no place in the religion and custom of Halala enacted by chauvinistic male, to instead humiliate and insult the female to make her prostitute herself for the sake of either her love of the first husband, her children or her economic considerations, and may be some others....

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....

Yet her visit was marred by a grotesque coordinated campaign, where private school teachers announced an “I am not Malala” day. Children were made to wear black armbands, hold up placards and sit through lectures on why Malala should be condemned....

Hijab: A Very French Obsession
Rokhaya Diallo

In a country that views "the seduction of women" as an important aspect of its national identity, it is easy to understand why Hijabi women can attract criticism. In France, men who "seduce" are adored and admired as "Don Juans"; in such a context, one can imagine that women who voluntarily decide to withdraw parts of their bodies from public view can be perceived as subversive....

Muslim Men Mobilise Women for Mass Rally against Triple Talaq Bill
Jyoti Punwani

The Oshiwara meet ended with women sobbing as a long Dua (by a man) bemoaned the fact that women’s tears had dried up and their hearts had hardened like those of men.   By the end of these preparatory meetings, the women were raring to go. Clear instructions were given: “Your men folk will guide you to buses which will leave from the nearest Masjid. Though exams are on, leave children at home. Let the men look after them. Carry water and Electral, but no plastic bags. Do not litter. Show the world that Muslims can be disciplined.  Above all, wear your burqa. There will be no slogans because Islam does not like women’s voices to be raised. If the media asks why you are here, tell them this Bill is against our religion, Shariat and our rights.”...
