The Human Lens

Part I, Written by Saadia Haq of The Human Lens

When I first heard of this, I was like numb for seconds until my good friend from Sindhi community proceeded to narrate how young women in her family are married off to Holy Quran under the tradition β€œHaq E Bakshish.” Pakistani women aren’t new to cruelty whether it comes in guide of religion or tradition but this manner of creating Muslim nuns is totally unIslamic and inhuman. Do realize that what I was told is supposedly a taboo topic but one that has recently been creating controversy within the country.

      Hey! Pakistan is where we came across it. It could be present in other places around the world but it’s very taboo so hardly any people report such practices. Thx a bunch for the support! We really need to speak up about that.

      You said it right… Its just shit.
      Almost all the clerics that I have interviewed and had as guests at my programs were so angry on this nonsensical bullshit of a tradition and declared it against Allah, Rasool and QURANIC teachings.
      As far as I heard, this is being practiced by Syed Muslims that actually is India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nepal there are more than fifteen million Sayyids: eight million in Pakistan, seven million in India, over one million in Bangladesh, and around seventy thousand in Nepal.
