The MSU team on the other hand was headed by the Executive Vice President, Dr. Rashid Paca, and the selected campus officials who have shared relevant information on gender in the mainstream and in Islam and Meranaw perspective.

According to  Arzoo Ahmed and Dr. Mehrunisha Suleman in  Islam’s rich tradition of scriptural guidance on equality between the sexes, examples of such equality have commonly been in practice within Muslim societies from the inception of Islam. Such teachings and practices have sought to end discrimination and provide societal inclusivity for men and women. Yet there are a plethora of problematic gender attitudes and norms across Muslim communities and societies today. Religion, at times, is weaponized to perpetuate gender inequalities

It is necessary not only to look back into history to understand the changing nature of gender roles but also to imagine the future of what healthier societies, with a more harmonious balance of gender equality, would look like. Islam offers tools for reimagining gender equality in an enriching and holistic way Suleman stresses.
