In Pakistan, Islamic schools for women thrive.Take Mariam Afzal, who says she was once so selfish she would take up two spots in a parking lot without a second thought.Founder Farhat Hashmi started Al-Huda (Arabic for "guidance") in her home with a small group of students in the early 1990s.

The face-covering burqa, once a rarity in Islamabad, now has stores specializing it, he notes. Hoodbhoy says Al-Huda is engendering a mindset of segregation and submission for women that is shredding Pakistan's cultural fabric.
