Satbir Singh Bedi's comment on Modern day feminism is primarily focused on targeting Islamic values and teachings?

One of the most misunderstood topics is Islam is the rights of women. And most of the time, we judge Islamic societies from an incident where a woman is denied her due rights. But today, we will try to see what Allah says about the rights in the Holy Qur'an. Women who are believers are helpers, supporters, friends, protectors of the believing men and vice versa, as is clear from the following verse and hence, women have been given equal status in the society: “The believers, men and women, are Auliya' (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another, they enjoin (on the people) Al-Ma'ruf(i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam orders one to do), and forbid (people) from Al-Munkar (i.e. polytheism and disbelief of all kinds, and all that Islam has forbidden); they perform As-Salat (Iqamat-as-Salat) and give the Zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.” (Qur’an 9.71) The bride is to be given obligatory bridal money called "Mahr" as mentioned in the following verse: “And give to the women (whom you marry) their Mahr (obligatory bridal money given by the husband to his wife at the time of marriage) with a good heart, but if they, of their own good pleasure, remit any part of it to you, take it, and enjoy it without fear of any harm (as Allah has made it lawful).” (Qur’an 4.4)
