This Woman Needs a Bodyguard

Nimat Hafez Barazangi, a Muslim woman and a research fellow in Cornell’s Feminist, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program has written a book titled “Woman’s Identity and the Qur’an: A New Reading” in which she asserts that the Koran has been misinterpreted for centuries.

New book says the Qur’an gives women the same rights as men

The Qur’an — Islam’s sacred book — offers Muslim women the same rights as men but traditionally has been misinterpreted, denying them those rights. That argument is convincingly made in a new book by a Muslim woman who is a scholar in Islamic foundations of education and identity development at Cornell.

With this news, I am now going to have to fear for her life. How long before some religious leader puts a fatwa on her and she ends up like Theo Van Gogh?

I hope she realizes this as well.
