One such example is from Fabia L

She had done nothing wrong, except that her husband had sold two of her children despite her strong protest. She was afraid of the sexual racket. She was as good and chaste as any Afghan worthy of her name. She was overwhelmed by the abomination of the husband who took her last two and left the country. She couldn’t sit on a protest outside anywhere. She performed hijrah or migration like the prophet of Islam.

Even more horrific is the case of Khattera, who was shot in the head and had her eyes gouged out with knives even when she begged her attackers not to torture her and let her receive her first paycheck in police services. She would no longer work!

In the current turmoil, the veil issue in Pakistan has another dimension. Samaa Kiran Naz’s anchor and famous nuclear physicist Pervez Hoodbhoy found themselves in opposition. Hoodbhoy’s observation that Muslim women’s activities affect their scope of work. Its meaning could be that some who wear the burqa may move away from purely academic activities for some non-academic or extracurricular activities. It differs from place to place. As a man with an IAS degree and a job at that level, he was sitting in a vegetable store and selling vegetables until the real seller came back.

In India, a Malegaon girl, Dr Zubaida Ansari wore the burqa to school and college. But years later, she wore a burqa but in the laboratory. she put it under the desk while doing practical work.

One day Indian President Abul Kalam visited his physics department and complimented his work. She casually asked him why he wasn’t fasting in the Ramzan as she and most of the world’s Muslims watched him. He refused to answer.

When I visited the university campus, it was Ramzan. At the start of the holy month of fasting, she brought me the early morning meal so that I could begin the fast. At work, the hijab was not a problem. This is how she wrote an article while attending a conference in Italy.

Another time I met her at the bus station with her late husband Dr Shafik (from Jamia Millia University in Delhi) and anxiously asked her and her to have children. . Both defended themselves by saying that their work took up all their time and that they had no plans to start a family. Good job good behavior.

When I completed my doctoral work in 1973, the editor of American Literature and a scholar and authority on Mark Twin, Louis J Budd of Durham University wrote a congratulatory letter. And what’s more, the President of India, Dr Zakir Hussain, also greeted me in a letter written in Urdu script!

What matters most in academic institutions is our subject and our work

But that doesn’t mean that women who wear the burqa begging outside a mosque are less prominent in society. A large number of beggars in their destitution do not have clothing to cover themselves properly, let alone the burqa. At least that is the case in India. It is also true what John Milton in his poem On His Blind remarks that he who stands by the side of the road and prays to God is doing the work of God.

Of course, the presenter / presenter Kiran Naz from Samaa made a remarkable demonstration for all Muslims around the world. It’s the good work you do that counts. She showed how easy it is to put on a veil.

Professor Hoodbhoy’s observation that their activities decrease: “As long as you don’t know whether they are in the classroom or not,” that is Hobsons’ choice. Does he continue to observe each girl in class or does he leave the choice and courage to speak in public and to speak individually to the girls?

Leaning a little in front of them conquers the world for them, opens their minds, ignites their imaginations and leads them to public speaking. In short, encourage them.
