Status of Hindu Women VS Muslim Women

1-GOD <--> 1-Religion <--> 1-Holy Book

Hindu Woman

 

Muslim Woman

Divorce

 

 

The Hindu Woman has no right to divorce her husband.


The Muslim woman has the same right as the Muslim man in all matters including divorce.

Property Rights

 

 

She has no property or inheritance rights.


She enjoys property and inheritance rights. (Which other religion grants women these rights?). She can also conduct her own separate business.

Choice of Partner



Choice of partner is limited because she can only marry within her own caste; moreover her horoscope must match that of the intending bridegroom/family.


She can marry any Muslim of her choice. If her parents choose a partner for her, her consent must be taken.

Dowry



The family of the girl has to offer an enormous dowry to the bridegroom/family.


The dowry in Islam is a gift from a husband to his wife (not the other way around as is practiced by some ignorant Muslims).

Widow



. If her husband dies she should commit Sati (being cremated with her dead husband). Since today's law forbids Sati, society mainly punishes her in other "holy" ways (see below).

The widow is considered to be a curse and must not be seen in public. She cannot wear jewelry or colourful clothes. (She should not even take part in her children's marriage!) 


A Muslim widow is encouraged to remarry, and her remarriage is the responsibility of the Muslim society.

Remarry



She cannot remarry.


A Muslim widow is encouraged to remarry, and her remarriage is the responsibility of the Muslim society.

Mixed marriage is encouraged and is a means to prevent racism creeping in society.

Widow Mother



The widow is considered to be a curse and must not be seen in public. She cannot wear jewelry or colourful clothes. (She should not even take part in her children's marriage!) 


A Muslim mother is given the highest form of respect
