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

The plight of the Muslim women is the result of an incorrect interpretation of the Holy Quran by classical commentators who were often misogynists and traditional modernists followed them blindly, both out of respect as well as to suit their own misogynistic ideas. These interpreters of the Holy Quaran followed it in letter but not in spirit. The Holy Quran itself says that there are certain things in it which are clear while there are certain other things which are not so clear and one has to ponder over the Holy Book to arrive at a correct interpretation. The following verse from the Holy Quran is relevant: It is He Who has sent down to you (Muhammad) the Book (this Qur'an). In it are Verses that are entirely clear, they are the foundations of the Book [and those are the Verses of Al-Ahkam (commandments, etc.), Al-Fara'id (obligatory duties) and Al-Hudud (legal laws for the punishment of thieves, adulterers, etc.)]; and others not entirely clear. So as for those in whose hearts there is a deviation (from the truth) they follow that which is not entirely clear thereof, seeking Al-Fitnah (polytheism and trials, etc.), and seeking for its hidden meanings, but none knows its hidden meanings save Allah. And those who are firmly grounded in knowledge say: "We believe in it; the whole of it (clear and unclear Verses) are from our Lord." And none receive admonition except men of understanding. (Tafsir At-Tabari). (Qur’an 3.7) So, what is required is the correct interpretation of the Holy Quran to give the Muslim women their due right.
