Journey to the House of Allah
This chapter elaborates the story of Negara Khatun, who currently works in a school, supporting children for whom English is a second language. She was seven years old when she and her family emigrated to the UK. At that time, if the child were a foreign student, s/he was not sent straight to school. There was quite clear racism in school. As a 39-year-old now, Negara sees her former self as a poor child engulfed in happiness because attention was being paid to her. She did not realise then that those were her tender years. Negara experienced domestic violence with her husband. Domestic violence is a crime that any woman can suffer at the hands of; it has nothing to do with class or faith or profession. Negara believes that her daughters have the same rights as their brothers as far as education and marriage are concerned.
