By this time, all of us have heard of E.L. James’ bestselling erotic novels: Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. These books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and the movie based on the first book opened at USD 60 million. Moreover, the long-awaited release of the movie based on the second book is finally upon us. There are elements in Fifty Shades that warrant discussion. I am firm with my convictions, and I choose to air them publicly.

I never rooted for you, and I never will.
But once you were on the verge of getting elected, I found myself saying, “He cannot be THAT bad…”

The most radical movement in recent times which is revolutionising the whole social structure and changing the entire basis of human relationships is the Feminist Movement; the drive for Women’s Liberation.
I identify myself as feminist who proudly associates with the “f-word” along with being a practicing Muslim. Is it possible to be a Muslim and a Feminist? Well, of course. Islam and Feminism does not contradict in terms and can work hand-in-hand.
