Lady Warsi said that women are denied the rights granted 1,400 years ago in the Quran
Pakistan fails to live up to one of the principles of Islam, which guarantees rights to all women, according Sayeeda Warsi, the Conservative Party co-chairman and minister without portfolio, which is the first Muslim to sit as a full member of the cabinet.
In a sign of impatience from Britain to Pakistan, Lady Warsi said the first Islamic republic denies the rights granted 1,400 years ago in the Qur'an.
As he prepares to become the first British Minister to address the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) next week, Warsi, said in an interview in The Guardian that in a shell "nut" that Pakistan is up to the ideals of its founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Warsi said she is able to deliver a strong message to Pakistan because it is unused by "colonial past". She said she had raised the issue of women's rights in Rawalpindi last July, in a speech in Urdu Fatima Jinnah University, the name of the younger sister of founder of Pakistan. "Why is it that today are denied the rights that their faith you gave 1400 years ago?" Warsi said, recalling his central message of his female audience.
Warsi, 40, whose father came to Britain from Pakistan in 1960, will speak at a meeting of foreign ministers of OIC next week in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan.
activists have warned against the treatment of women in northwest Pakistan, where justice is administered in parts by the tribes through the Loya rather than by the state. Women generally suffer more severe treatment when couples are condemned to be stoned to death for adultery. Samar Minallah, women's rights activists, warned last year. "In many previous cases, the woman died later, or marriage for a bride price simply can not allow it to be, must take revenge. "
Warsi, who recalls wearing a pink shalwar kameez the day was named, believes his presence in the cabinet of challenges, "the kind of lazy prejudice" is said in the Muslim world and in Great Britain that someone of his background can not be a government minister.
"I do not think that in this clash of civilizations, where the West and the Muslim world," he said. "I mean, if so, where do I fit?"
