Dr. Amina Wadud delivered the Keynote address of the Valedictory session of the three day UGC National Seminar on ‘Human Rights for Women’ at Unity Women’s College, Manjeri. Dr Amina Wadud , Professor Emeritus of Islamic Studies, Virginia Commonwealth University, , USA started off by commenting on the Euro-centric perceptions of Human Rights which tried to homogenise the concept of rights, ignoring the local polyphonic variations evident locally.  According to Islamic theology, Wadud argued, Man is the agent of God. When the said singularity of agency is violated on man-made hierarchies, human rights are violated. She has been trying to counter the rising feel that one has to choose between Islam and Human rights. For her, a common ground where Islam meets Human Rights exists. Adv. P. Kulsu, Chairperson, Kerala State Women Development Corporation, inaugurated the valedictory session of the seminar. She came down heavily on the culture of victimising women.
