Muslim women break taboo, offer Eid prayers

Fighting against convention, 1,000 Muslim women congregated at Hyderpur in Malda (India) to offer Eid namaz on Saturday just like their male counterparts: succeeding in breaking free from the shackles of male domination, the women gathered under the banner of Muslim Mahila Janakalyan Samity and prayed, led not by a moulvi but a woman from among them.
