Cases like Shah Bano illustrated how far women can be pushed back for the ‘sake of the community’. Further, situations of conflict, like the anti-Sikh riots in Delhi and the anti-Muslim genocide in Gujarat have compelled us to work at various levels. Organising relief and rehabilitation work, fighting to ensure State support for victims, demanding punishment for the guilty, working as part of democratic and secular platforms to create an environment of peace and harmony, being part of fact finding missions and efforts to develop new laws as well as developing a feminist critique of rising fundamentalisms… our work on communalism is facing new challenges every day.
