"Because we refuse to marginalise women in society in all roles that comply with sharia, we have decided, after deliberation with our senior ulama (the clerics) and others... to involve women in the Shura Council as members, starting from next term," he said.
Wonders never cease! However, it's about time too. I hope the ulama deliberated spiritually and were not advised to cobble together some well spun plan.
