The Bitter Lament Of Muslim Women

By Jahanara Begum "Allah Amader Kandte Dao!" Allah, Please let us weep in peace! —Jahanara Begum lease, Allah, leave us alone to cry and weep in peace.

This is the only right you have left to us Muslim women, throughout the Islamic world, where your laws are meticulously followed.

Freedom With Strength, Strength With Freedom

"Whatever are we to do in the face of Islamic terrorism?" asks a frightened Alice once again through the looking glass.
