Islahi likens family to the institution of state. A state is required to be headed by a person; a family is also required to have a head. It can be husband or wife, but cannot be both.
Islahi’s assertion is in favour of man. In his view, man possesses those qualities which are required for the custodianship of family. However, it does not mean that man is superior to woman in all walks of life.
There are certain areas where women are ahead of men. For example, man cannot take care of the children as can a woman.
There is an inherent difference between man and woman. Man has an edge over woman in some physical aspects. Any step in the direction of equating both has proved futile.
Islahi considers all such moves a war against God and human wisdom. In the modern times most countries of the world equate women with men.
Legal and constitutional equality does not mean that they become equal in all fields of life.
