Supplied note:
"Dear Friends and Colleagues, I am very happy to celebrate the 15th
year of IJTS [International Journal of Tantric Studies - ed.] and
JSAWS publications with the new issue of the Journal of South Asia
Women Studies
, vol. 12, no. 1, focusing on Human Rights. [...]
In this [Dec 2010] issue you can read the paper "Victims or Agents?
An Issue of Identity Amongst Indian Migrant Women in Australia," by
Loshini Naidoo (University of Western Sydney, Australia), and two
paper interviews. The paper by Prof. Naidoo attempts to provide an
understanding of the challenges that migrant woman, particularly
women from the Indian sub-continent, face in cultural identity

The interview paper is titled "An Islamic Feminist: Asya Andrabi and
the Dukhtaraan-e-Millat in Kashmir by Francesca Marino (journalist,
Director of Stringer Asia). It is based on an interview with Asya
Andrabi, the founder and elusive leader of the militant female Islam
group Dukhtaraan-e-Millat in Indian Kashmir.
The paper "Afghanistan, Issues at stake and Viable Solutions: An
Interview with H.R.H. Princess India of Afghanistan" was written by
myself. It is based on an interview with H.R.H. Princess India of
Afghanistan, the honorary Cultural Ambassador of Afghanistan to
Europe, approved in 2006 by President Hamid Karzai, and one of the
founder members of Mahmud Tarzi Cultural Foundation (MTCF). It was
made in January 2010.

The paper mostly deals with human rights issues and viable solutions
for Afghanistan. It anticipates some of the alleged misconduct of US
soldiers revealed over seven months later by Wikileaks.

Please note that the Note from the Editor and the interview with
H.R.H. Princess India of Afghanistan are freely available. Enjoy! -
Enrica Garzilli."

manyfold. This journal [ISSN 1084-7478] is open to all bona fide
scholars in South Asia women studies. We aim to publish our work

etc. The journal is also a platform for dialog on interfaith issues,
and for dialog on issues of importance to Asian women. We want to
promote an international debate on the subject, and create a channel
of communication between science and media, between scholarly
production and NGOs activities, and between positive and religious
thought and/or ethical thought. We want to publicize the scholarly
study of women in terms of human rights. Women Studies, and
particularly "Third World" Women Studies, means to be involved in
ethical and social issues. Areas of study: India, Nepal, Tibet,
Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma,
Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Taiwan, Maldives, Malaysia,
