"It didn’t take me long after I reverted to realise people don’t listen to Muslim women. Especially those who fail to recognise the importance of intersectionality in their ‘activism’, who see me as ‘oppressed’ by my faith that actually empowers me in indescribable ways. Self-proclaimed feminists can’t seem to comprehend autonomous, opinionated and loud Muslim women. I started writing to reclaim my narrative from such Islamophobic and patriarchal ideology, I won't be silenced. Everyone deserves to have their stories told how they really happen, not how oppressive systems choose to frame them to suit their own agendas."
