In such a Nationalist, Socially and politically vibrant atmosphere, I was fortunate enough to get nurtured and educated in my family, where equality and justice were hallmarks of the life. As it was very much evident in my school and college life. When the time come for my marriage, then I have taken a very revolutionary step, and denied to solemnized my Nikah by the male Qaazi. I asked a very pertinent question to the society..., if Muslim marriage is a contract, then Why can Muslim women not perform this contract (Nikah). There were no proper answer, which could be satisfied to me, then I called a woman Qaazi to solemnize my own Nikah. This was first marriage which was solemnized by a Woman Qaazi not only in India, but the 36 countries worldwide congratulated and news flashed in every corner of the world..
As a Muslim women's rights activist for 15 years, I was very much aware about issues related to Muslim women. I have chosen to work and fight for discriminatory practices of Triple Talaq and Halala, polygamy etc, which are very rampant in Muslim society and fundamentalist forces are trying to under carpet this issues from the past 70 years as it was happened in the Shahbano episode. As a matter of equality and justice, I am very prompt and active to fight gender-justice, fundamentalist and mobilized secular men and women to fight with these discriminatory practices. I am very active to make consensus building to codify the Muslim Personal Law (Sharia Application Act-1937). This Sharia law cannot give justice and equality to women, therefore, I am trying to mobilize, government institutions, civil society and aware citizen to the above mentioned cause.
