This thesis book is an attempt to explore the tussle between freedom of expression and religion in India. Based on a Case study with small sample size, this study does not claim to fix any problem or to create any new theories. This study has explored perception of Hindu and Muslim graduate students in three universities, located in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, particularly on the conflict between freedom of expression and religious intolerance in India. This study showed India’s response in tolerating religion over freedom of expression as a product of its unique multicultural situation where dialogues among communities is dialogically constituted and collective principles are generated within a particular moral and political structure. Within scope of Indian style of secularism, as found out in this Case study, absolute freedom of expression is neither required nor possible.

This primer on Muslim women’s rights is meant to create better understanding about their rights in the Qur’an. Various Qur’anic verses have been misinterpreted to give women secondary position whereas Qur’an clearly pronounces gender equality. Also there are certain verses in Qur’an which have been interpreted to mean subjugation of women whereas the words, if carefully understood and read in conjunction with other verses on women in the Qur’an do not support any such subordination. This book is an attempt to explain these verses in proper context.
Qur’an is the first revealed scripture which gave equal honour and dignity to women in every respect. However, patriarchal Muslim society never acceded equal dignity to women. Today Muslim women are demanding equality and there is need for such literature to rightly explain Qur’anic position to Muslim women. This primer, it is hoped, will fulfill this much needed objective.
