Dr.Rehana Sultan: The Iron Lady Of Hyderabad.


Unread post by ghulam muhammed » Sun Mar 11, 2012 6:23 pm

It is sometimes impossible to imagine a woman playing multi dynamic roles of educationist, reformist, feminist, and a human rights activist. That imagination will become vaguer if it is in context of Muslim women. But if someone likes to shrug off their imagination one has to meet Dr. Rehana Sultana, the iron lady of Hyderabad.

Dr. Rehana Sultana at present is the Director, Center for Women’s Studies at Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU), Chairperson, Deccan Education Society, and President of Civil liberties Monitoring Committee.

Dr. Sultana has done graduation several times in different subjects like linguistics, political science, history, sociology, and anthropology. She has also done M.Phil and Ph.D. in linguistics. She has also studied law. It will be interesting to know that this woman who is believed by many to be the most educated Muslim woman in Hyderabad had got married at the age of 15 without even completing her matriculation.

Sadly she is now having serious health problems. Her both kidneys have failed; she has to get dialysis two times a week, but still her determination to work for her community and especially its women keeps her busy. Now on the eve of Women’s Day, as a director for women’s studies in MANUU she is planning to form a separate wing of studies to educate men about the rights of their opposite sex.
