Nous devons faire le point sur les divers événements qui ont eu lieu en Inde au cours des cinquante dernières années de notre indépendance ainsi que sur les développements intervenus à cette période dans la communauté musulmane, notamment en ce qui concerne les mouvements de réforme dans l’Islam indien.
L’année 1994 a été une année record en matière de politique populaire et radicale en Afrique du Sud. Cette même année, les forces conservatrices du pays ont également connu un regain de jeunesse[1]. La création du parlement tricaméral par le Parti national a intensifié les luttes populaires. Au cours de la résistance à l’apartheid, plusieurs confessions religieuses (y compris les Musulmans) ont rejoint le parti démocratique.
“Est-ce tomber dans la subjectivité que d’“attribuer une grande importance au poids de l’Islam” dans l’étude des causes de l’oppression de la femme arabe ? Malgré toutes les transformations survenues dans le monde arabe depuis l’ère des califes, on est encore loin de la laïcité.

The Kosovo crisis is at the heart of the decade long war drama of the late country that used to be called Yugoslavia. The symbolic sign of the scope of immensely shallow (mis)understanding of the dead country’s destiny is (for those of us who still remember) today painfully visible in CNN headlines: “War in Yugoslavia”.

What “Yugoslavia” the world is talking about today? The trick with people’s memory and amnesia is maybe unintentional, but it’s no less misleading.
