Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms mentioned in the book Women, the Koran and International Human Rights Law: The Experience of Pakistan. The book looks at the status of women in 7th century Arab society, what reforms Islam effected, whether women were given equal status and what was the Koranic method of reforming Arab society. It uses the legal system of Pakistan as a case study investigating the politicising of religion in the process of legislation generally and the so-called process of Islamisation during the Zia-ul-Haq regime (1976-1988).

Keywords: Arab society; International Human Rights Law; Zia-ul-Haq regime
