Muslim Widows
A case study in Delhi

By Neelofer Harem

The life of a widow and the social practices surrounding widowhood
in the countries of the Indian Sub-Continent show a cross-border
cross-cultural uniformity. In every culture or religious group
widowhood is inauspicious. The life of a widow is marked by suffering and social exclusion, if not destitution. Some cultures have some institutional support systems but, by and large, these support
systems also fall prey to misuse and corruption.

Most pathetic is the condition of widows who have to live on their
own. The condition becomes worse if they also have some children to support, especially daughters.

Contribution: Rs. 20. per copy plus postage.
