In a community of men born and brought up in historical traditions and institutions with particular beliefs and attitudes towards treating their women. They are “Muslims” for no other reason than that for generations they have been called by that name. In other words, their birth and environment alone entitles them to be described as such irrespective of their choice and understand of the term. Above all, as pointed out earlier he term does not necessarily have any link with the Quran. The behavior of a conventional “Muslim” may only accidentally conform to or belief the Quran, just as much as the behavior of a Hindu and a Christian, a capitalist and a communist. In general, the attitude of men towards women is not above criticism. The subjugation of women in some form or the other has been a universal evil.
Muslim Women are living in a disturbingly painful and ever-present sense of insecurity. It is an insecurity of a kind that carries with it an everlasting humiliation, an inexpressible ugliness, a sham that ultimately ends up in self hate, in the loss of any pride and self-respect that woman has. How many women can go back home and repeat or describe to their family members the ugly passes that were made at them and the exact indecent and smutty remarks that were hurled at them? No! She cannot repeat or describe them. She lives with this poison; she feeds her own blood; it eats into the very vitals of all that could be beautiful and healthy. For centuries “Muslim” men have kept their women under house arrest. Today they are staggering out in realization of their fundamental human rights, a little uncertain may be but in complete surprise at their own latent personalities and ever widening horizon of new avenues for exploration. But unfortunately to our Muslim men, a woman who moves out of her kitchen home for no purpose other than an evil one. Consequently, she has become the target of an organized, relentless and ruthless propaganda of a most obscene kind. Both on the individual and group level a only these self righteous moralists read carefully Surah 4, verse 24 of the Quran which considers an unproved charge against an innocent woman the worst of crimes, they would think twice before they opened their mouths or picked up their pens.
Have a nice weekend
