DESCRIPTION

Explores the historical and contemporary situation of Muslim women in the specific context of the interplay of religion and law in Islam, with special reference to the vast Muslim world of South Asia. The region provides an excellent comparative framework to explore the problems of Muslim women, law and religion in the varying contexts of their secular and Islamic constitutions on the one hand, and democratic and authoritarian governments on the other. The explication of the general and theoretical issues concerning religion, law and women in Islam will be grounded on historical and empirical illustrations drawn largely from three countries in this region -- India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The raging controversies surrounding Muslim Personal Law and the issue of Uniform Civil Code in relation to women, including its underlying politics, will receive particular attention.
