Secular Jihadists from the Middle East is a podcast with atheist, exMuslim hosts.

May 24, 2018

Rafya is a Pakistani woman who was married off at seventeen. After enduring years of mistreatment and abuse, she finally gathered up the courage to leave her husband, but this came with a cost: he ripped their three-year-old daughter from her arms. When Rafya tried to get her back, he registered a blasphemy case against her — which is potentially punishable by death in Pakistan. Having moved to the United States at this point, Rafya not only had to travel to Pakistan monthly for court dates in the custody battle, but also do it at great risk to her life, which was repeatedly subject to threats of everything from acid attacks to death. Rafya joined us to talk about her story in an absolutely riveting conversation. She described her initial marriage, her eight-year fight in Pakistani courts to get her daughter back, and what others in her situation can learn from her experience. As dark as this sounds, you'll also find yourself laughing out loud at her incredible sense of humor and infectious wit as we did. A truly fantastic conversation. Don't miss it.
