Show Summary Details


This chapter provides the story of Zohra Rashid, who's father was a pioneer of women's education in the region in Pakistan. He wanted to changing their women. They give back their brain to think, to work, and to change the destiny of the nation. It was a huge change for Zohra to go from a little town to a university town. The riots in Bradford were sad times and she thinks people in other parts of England got a bad impression of the Muslim community. That that attitude in Bradford was changed, was, she thinks, a result of the daring behaviour of Bradford's Muslim women. Zohra feels very bitter about not being a part of it. She wanted to work for peace and friendship and this was an opportunity to be part of it. It was a great thing and she missed it.
