Zuhra to move SC for right to offer prayers in mosques
| Thursday | 11th October, 2018
Ms. Zuhra said women were not allowed to be Imams in any denominations even if they were religious scholars.
Zuhra, president of NISA, a Kozhikode-based progressive Muslim women’s forum, is planning to approach the Supreme Court demanding that women be allowed to offer prayers in all mosques in the country, and that they be allowed to become Imams as well.
She has already submitted two other petitions in the apex court, one demanding equal property rights for Muslim women and another demanding a revision of Muslim marriage laws.
I have read in texts of Islamic history that Prophet Mohammed allowed his wives to be present in mosques even when they were menstruating.
“I expect that the verdict will come to our advantage,” Ms. Zuhra said.
