That it is not proclaimed as obligatory has deeper meaning; as right or wrong are left to human initiatives, its importance would be lost if forced. A Mirror To The Blind. A parasite nibbling on the Holy Book, he was Lucifer, holding me by the throat and driving me to sin every night. He was the rapist of orphans and the fiend that fed on the weak. But over and above all this, he was known to be the man closest to Allah, the one who could reach Him and save us.

But now those who had bought from him found themselves hauled in by the police on trumped-up charges and coerced into returning his land. Before long, Mustafa had recouped almost all of his holdings.

This point is repeated again and again, claiming that Bhutto was convinced they could change the country together, but he was planning this with the same Khar who blew all the money his father gave him upon his election to the National Assembly on buying a cavalcade of ridiculously expensive American cars.

Sherry theorized that he suffered from an inferiority complex. He resented women from our social background and made it his mission to subjugate them. He disguised his class envy by assuming a feudal air. This connection between the Mustafa Khar that other people saw and the reality of who he was—a vicious and cruel person—seemed to be pervasive throughout both his political life as well as his personal.

For Mustafa Khar, his weak morals and his feelings of inadequacy were all inter connected with an inherent misogyny that patriarchy allowed him to cultivate to the best of his abilities. She claimed that his political idealism was merely an attempt to gain access to our class and that his concern for the poor and the downtrodden was a sham.

In truth, she said, it was a manifestation of his hatred for the lite. He wanted to demolish the structure that ridiculed his origins and lacked at his lack of breeding and style.

Women were his obvious victims. He was out to destroy us. However, it would be an understatement to claim that Khar was merely misogynistic. For him, wives were perfectly acceptable venues for expressing his anger, laying his hands on, exerting control over. At the beginning, he was portrayed as merely passionate: Eventually though, once they are married, the reality started to set in.

His first wife, older than him and handed to him on the authority of his father, he ran off to the city to escape after impregnating. He then married an air hostess, and a few years after that a prostitute.

The last wife before our author was Shehrezad, a beautiful, highly accomplished woman whom Khar married because he had to meet US delegates and wished to impress them with his trophy wife. This sort of intertwining of the personal with the political is a thread that runs throughout the book, primarily because Mustafa Khar was a politician.

Which is why one of the reasons I liked reading this book was the historical perspective it provided. Biased or not, history is always more interesting when reading from the point of the view of the figures involved, rather than from a dry, date-by-date account that our course books usually espouse.

This is made all the more interesting for any Pakistani reader who must judge for themselves how true to history this narrative really is. Within a year, fueled by the hostile press, mainly in India and Britain, the battle for the liberation of Bangladesh had begun. The west seemed to have misread the plight of the East Pakistani people. This manipulation of events proves that within the narrative there is an obvious bias towards the things that Tehmina Durrani believed or knew.

So how do we look at the rest of the story: And without fail each criticism, contentious and strongly worded, is tinged with hints of ingrained misogyny. Most people, even the highly educated ones, held on to some strand of victim blaming, questioning why Tehmina chose to stay with Mustafa or why multiple women kept marrying him even with his cruelty widely known.

And this question, about why she stayed with him, is one of the most commonly asked ones about abusive marriages: But the reality of it is different, must be different, must be an existence that from us, the privileged, commands only empathy. In this book in particular, there is a vicious cycle of dependency, a particular hint of obsession and an inability to let go of each other.

He spoke of the Adila episode, and was convinced that the Devil had entered him. He knew that he had imprisoned me in loneliness, and now, he believed, God had punished him with imprisonment while I was free. He had thought that he had lost me forever, and all he had was this room and God. He now realized what it must have been like for me when I was isolated and alone.

This, coupled with the fact that she then married Shahbaz Sharif, current Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly of Pakistan thereby jumping back into politics. Most of the people who read this book state pretty much the same thing: When a women works, we expect her to be a champion for the rights of all working women. A women who has had kids must be able to understand when another mother wants a break. Misogyny is hard to recognize for most people, and even harder to unlearn.

And for most of this story, it is misogyny we must encounter, in the characters as well as in ourselves: All these things are intense and involve patriarchal notions in all forms, which means it involves a careful untangling of your own horror as a reaction to the story. The good thing was, I had lots of friends on whom I could rely upon to provide me with smart insights.

One of them, working on a paper about Saving Muslim Women and how Islamophobic narratives are used to justify military interventions in Muslim-majority countries, wrote about American anthropologist Lila Abu-Lughod.

This, I think, was fascinating for me, because my reactions were purely class based: When I was trying to convince my best friend to read this book, she expressed doubt about wanting to read a bad book. But whether this is a good book or not is hard to say, since unlike fiction nonfiction, and especially biographies, must be reviewed in a manner completely different to what I am used to.

Does one judge a biography on how faithful to reality it is, or how comprehensive in containing the life under discussion? As a closing argument, I think this book is a must read. I think everyone should definitely read it once, and then engage in a long, healthy debate about all of the things that surround it. Mind blown. Review to come. Jan 18, Ajay rated it really liked it. Having grown up in India, I have always been interested in things happening in Pakistan.

My feudal lord

We would view things in Pakistan with a sense of mystery. There were so many walls between the two nations, there still are.

But things are easing. Growing up, for me and many others during the cold war, Pakistan was always represented as this theocratic rogue, by the powers that be, always on the brink of war with India. Tehmina Durrani's book, does not do much to dispel this myth. But the fact that she sur Having grown up in India, I have always been interested in things happening in Pakistan. But the fact that she survived to write this book and still resides in Pakistan is an achievement in itself.

Unlike Tasleema Nasrin, Durrani does not challenge the Islamic point of view, instead she challenges male chauvinism in a feudal and intolerant society. That she has survived and told her story is in exhilarating in itself.

It is not as harrowing as some other notable books from Islamic Lands, but it is just as honest voice. Sep 24, Sheokhanda rated it liked it. I first saw this book on the bookshelf of one of my friend. Upon reading its back cover and discussing about with the friend, I became intrigued. For starters she herself is not that clean but honest nonetheless, as she was having extra-marital affair with Mustafa Khar when she was already married something she reports here, it seems to me that some women enjoy the co I first saw this book on the bookshelf of one of my friend.

For starters she herself is not that clean but honest nonetheless, as she was having extra-marital affair with Mustafa Khar when she was already married something she reports here, it seems to me that some women enjoy the company of powerful men, not that those powerful men aren't good seducers She looses the custody of her first child to her husband who is way more subtle compared to Mustafa Khar, but whom she married after convincing to her parents that she loves him like anything and would live happily ever-after with him.

In the book she deals with the fact that Pakistani elites are chauvinistic people including her own father who earlier use give into his demanding, high nose wife. That changes when he starts getting affection of certain other lady, as he starts to assert himself She wishes to repeatedly say that she suffered form an inferiority complex since childhood as she was an ugly ducking among good looking Pashtun family of her.

She is particularly critical of Mustafa Khar as he is shown as playboy,ruthless political animal and some one who corrupts her younger sister, a 16 year old whom he later marries after divorcing Miss Durrani, not before making her a woman in the due process, quite a scandal. There are chapters on her survival after divorce when her children are taken away and there is no financial support for her too.

Finally she writes the book "My Feudal lord" and when Mr Mustafa Khar asks her question that what was that none-sense written in the books of her's in regard to the secrets that she brings out.

She replies that now you would be known by my Name, as an ex-husband of Tehmina Durrani and not vicaversa,like he had earlier predicted His exact words to be like: In short she takes her revenge.

Apr 26, Anum rated it really liked it Shelves: The Ultimate Nightmare of a Pakistani Woman: To be trapped in a violent marriage Tehmina Durrani was born into a strangely dysfunctional family with a combination of an over dominating mother and a mostly absentee father.

Cursed with dark skin, she was forever ignored and psychologically led-down by her mother. Nevertheless, she grew up to be charming young lady who drew many a male attention but never from anyone her parents might approve. Her first marriage was to Anees Khan, a man of lower social standing than Tehmina's family.

However, his love could not hold her interest too long in front of the charismatic Mustafa Khar a prominent political figure in Pakistan , whom she met at a social gathering and instantly fell in love with. Little did she know that the public and private faces of Mustafa Khar were two different entities!

While they were both married when they met, Mustafa Khar manipulated the situation enough to ensure Tehmina's divorce. His marriage to her soon after, ultimately resulted in his own divorce from Sherry, his fifth wife.

She endured his violent and volcanic temperament in silence for more than a decade, never finding enough courage to leave him.

She stood by him in the toughest period of his political career; however, Mustafa rewarded her patience and benevolence towards him with infidelity and betrayal.

Caught in the web of family drama and the prospect of social stigma Tehmina endured for a long while, but there comes a point when enough is enough! I have to commend her courage to speak out, because no other Pakistani woman would admit to half of the things Ms.

Durrani reveals in her book. However, I find it hard to fully sympathise with her as far as her political ideals are concerned.

I was reading somewhere that her she is now married to the current chief-minister of Punjab, Shahbaz Shareef, and that she influences many of his political decisions. Nevertheless, where some might call her an adulterous, some might call her a house-wrecker, I would say that she was a very brave woman.

I commend her courage and hope that other women in my country would learn from her bravery and also from her mistakes, as there is still hope for us as a nation Jan 29, Phani rated it it was ok. I found this book unreadably tragic. Though I agree with some of the other reviews that the author comes off as insincere, I have to believe that most of what she claims is true, though possibly dramatized and exaggerated.

The blurb proclaims that the book is a "devastating indictment of women's role in Muslim society" and that it is a "sensational European bestseller". That should have made me cynical, but I picked up the book anyway. Upon reading the book though, Islam comes off as the junior p I found this book unreadably tragic.

Upon reading the book though, Islam comes off as the junior partner in the oppression of Durrani. The bigger problem seems to be her marriage to a psychotic, manipulative, and extremely powerful man. There is no reason to suppose that this is a peculiarly Pakistani or Muslim problem. This could happen anywhere. Durrani's first husband Anees, who is both Pakistani and Muslim, comes off as a polar opposite to her Mustafa Khar. He is gentle, honourable, and treats women with respect.

When asked for a divorce, though much pained, he granted one without much of a fuss.

He sent his daughter from his marriage to Durrani back to her mother. The book doesn't teach us much that we don't already know: Pakistan is a lawless, patriarchal society that allows men like Khar to be cruel to their wives, but also has men like Anees. Not worth your time is all I can say.

Nov 25, Wsm rated it liked it. A sensational bestseller and a much talked about book when it was published.

Tehmina Durrani

It reads more like a novel than a memoir. There is no telling how much of it is fact and how much is fiction. Its subject,Ghulam Mustafa Khar,a well known Pakistani politician is depicted in the worst possible way as a womaniser,extremely cruel and a political opportunist.

He is also accused of being an enemy agent. The author,herself,does not emerge smelling of roses. Her own actions,motives and choices seem very questionabl A sensational bestseller and a much talked about book when it was published. Her own actions,motives and choices seem very questionable as she spends a long time with this man despite all his alleged cruelty and exploitation.

It is a trashy book but it uses real life characters and actual political events to tell the story. This makes it interesting as well as debatable. Sep 19, Sharron E. Written in the same world where I live, and the reality of which we go through everyday. Feb 13, brat gaba rated it did not like it. I agree with Piyush Verma - the book lacks sincerity. It's quite evident that that the writer is trying too hard to get a tear.

Also, most of what happened with her was self-inflicted I don't mean the violence of course. It is SHE who broke another woman's marriage and home, and then spends the rest of her life complaining about having gotten a raw deal. Still, if only for her horrible experiences, I was inclined towards giving this book a 3-star rating.

One sentence in the whole book totally ru I agree with Piyush Verma - the book lacks sincerity. One sentence in the whole book totally ruined it for me - the lady goes to India and is allowed to enter without a visa her husband has asked the Indian Govt for assistance in overthrowing the existing Pak regime - she wants to, and is allowed to visit Ajmer Sharif along with a couple of special agents in tow - she complains about this as if implying that the Govt should have left her free to roam the country without a visa - then, the clincher for me: I truly could not breathe for a few seconds, and actually re-read the paragraph a couple of times to make sure I wasn't reading it wrong!

Was she not saying her 'Islamic prayers' when she had illicit liasons her words, not mine with another woman's husband while still married to Anees?

I wonder how her 'Islamic prayers' were not disturbed when she broke Sherry's marriage and home? Were her 'Islamic prayers' not disturbed when she broke her own home and the heart of her first husband Anees?

After this, the whole book seemed an exercise in self-indulgence. Both, she as well as her 2nd husband come across as self-centred, self-consumed persons, and I daresay, they deserved each other. Dec 01, Saniya Ahmad rated it did not like it. While the abuse was brutal, Durrani lacks sincerity and refuses to accept her own flaws and chooses instead, to blame everything on her family and her husband, Khar. She also refuses to accept that she also ruined someone's home, and she also left a husband and a daughter, a daughter who kept coming back to a mother who didn't want her, and instead chooses to victimize herself even when it wasn't needed.

This is probably the first book I have ever wanted to throw away because it just does not fe While the abuse was brutal, Durrani lacks sincerity and refuses to accept her own flaws and chooses instead, to blame everything on her family and her husband, Khar.

This is probably the first book I have ever wanted to throw away because it just does not feel right, for her to think she was innocent, and that the whole world was against her, not when she herself destroyed so many lives.

Apr 15, Samreen rated it really liked it. One may not find this autobiography so charming and full of success but it is drastically woven with the bitter truths about the feudal lord's filthy rules over others lives. Their lies and double standards. Tehmina Durrani has broken the silence by revealing it all at the price of many things. A worth to read. May 03, Indrani Sen rated it really liked it Shelves: A book, difficult to digest because it is autobiographical.

The atrocities that happen on the protagonist are monstrous. The husband a still functioning politician in Pakistan. It makes me rethink about our politicians too.

We never think good of them anyway but never expected them to be of quite this level either. The parents, the sisters are an awful mix of support and destruction. The protagonist at the end frees herself and tells her story.

There is a lot of Pakistani politics discussed, whic A book, difficult to digest because it is autobiographical. There is a lot of Pakistani politics discussed, which while digresses from the main domestic violence story, is still very interesting.

Indian leaders show up unexpectedly with unexpected roles to play. Kudos to the writer that she has not hidden her own warts. During political discussions, she did seem to show off as a nicer and idealistic person, which seems suspect to me.

But outside of politics, her voice is strong and clear; the pain and the hopelessness come across very well. Overall a good book. I do recommend you to pick up and read this one. Apr 13, Bushra rated it really liked it. Though her accounts of Mustafa Khar are generally perceived as false accusations Some say it's too depressing to be true , I rather found it easy to relate to Durrani as a real women.

I didn't come across anything in the book that can't be expected from the feudals of Pakistan. Jan 02, Afshan Ejaz rated it really liked it Shelves: A prisoner ultimately settles into a monotonous routine. Anger recedes, senses dull. The spirit is crushed. Sep 30, Meaningless rated it really liked it Shelves: Before starting this book, my expectations were not very high.

I was expecting a below average book in terms of content and style like most famous biographies. It turned out to be a surprisingly interesting read both in terms of narrative technique and content. For me the portrait of Ghulam Mustafa khar as Immoral, Womanizer, Don Juan, worst husband, sadist pedophile, Rapist, corrupt, illiterate, blasphemer, sick minded, psychopath, Brutus for Bhutto, Machiavelli of Pakistan, Worst of feudal lor Before starting this book, my expectations were not very high.

For me the portrait of Ghulam Mustafa khar as Immoral, Womanizer, Don Juan, worst husband, sadist pedophile, Rapist, corrupt, illiterate, blasphemer, sick minded, psychopath, Brutus for Bhutto, Machiavelli of Pakistan, Worst of feudal lords, and murderer is least interesting.

We all know how politicians of all ages and all countries are.
