This is what it is like to be a woman in Pakistan today.
Walking across an airport you are told by a stranger, a man in an ironed shirt, a leather belt with a silver buckle and jeans turned-up at the ankle, to cover yourself properly because a peephole of skin — your collarbone, your leg, your stomach — has shown through your salwar kameez. Applying for a visa to Malaysia you are told that as a Pakistani woman you will need to provide a return ticket to prove you are not travelling to the great Islamic state to work as a prostitute (the consulate will not ask a French woman for the same anti-prostitution proof, as though only Pakistani women are suspicious enough to wish to spend that much time in dreary Malaysia).

Inspired from the song composed by Gandhi ‘Ishwar Allah terey naam’ Shiva your name is Allah. Here Shiva is represented as an ascetic who rises from the chaos of existence. His trident says Allah and atop his head is the name of Ali from which much of the world springs. Her all faiths are united divided only by names.
