Recent evidences clearly show the greater assimilation of Muslim women in national awakening and rebuilding process acceptable within both Islamic and Western democratic precincts. The trend seems irrevocably supportive of recent transformations seen in both Fatwa and Feminism in the Islamic world with regard to the role and status of Muslim women.
This book attempts to examine the status and role of Muslim women in India as well as the problems and prospects confronting them. It also makes a critical analysis of the impact of two instruments of dynamism and change-Fatwa and Feminism-on Indian Muslim women. The basic premise of the book is that both fatwa and feminism, if applied in a positive and constructive manner, are indispensable for implementing attitudinal change among Indian Muslims in a bid to improve the present status of their women.
