  • Summary: 

    “The 21st century belongs to women of Muslim heritage,” said Jimmy London [Sedaa contributor Jimmy Bangash] in a Facebook post/thread. He is right. When we expose or talk about our lives under Muslim culture, we are not just doing it out of spite, we do it for our mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, scores of neighbours, friends and relatives whose troubled lives spilled before us while growing up and getting conditioned into our culture.

    We could do nothing except watch and listen and observe as the adult women consoled, cajoled and threatened the docile, adamant or rebellious young ones into accepting their fates.
