Safia Mehdi?s family hopes that she will bring back her deviant husband, Abbas Jafri to ?God's true faith?. Ironically, Abbas who dreams of a liberated India where women enjoy equal rights as men helps Safia break free from the stereotype of a Muslim woman. However, just when everything seems all right, Abbas is issued a fatwa for confronting the Imam and criticising the shariat for the sorry state of Muslim women in the country. He is killed by fanatics and Safia is left all alone to fend for her daughter and herself. Armed with sheer belief in the power of being a woman, Safia sets out to find out if women can become the god that they were always meant to be. About the Author Noor Zaheer has written the Delhi Hindi Academy Award winner book Mere Hisse ki Roshnai, Surkh Karwan ke Hamsafar, a travelogue of Pakistan and Bad Urraiyye, a novel.
