Saiera - Despair and Defiance behind the Burqa

The Afghan author Ahmadullah Rahmani has published a traumatic tale. The reader shares the optimistic plans of a young girl, her hopes and her youthful optimism - all of which are successively dashed by a repressive society dominated by men.


The fate of Saiera which is described in this book is unfortunately still typical for Afghanistan and other countries dominated by Islam. This exciting and moving story shows how far women in this culture are still away from equal rights and fair treatment. 

The Afghan author Ahmadullah Rahmani dedicates this book to all women who are humiliated, oppressed and tortured and have no opportunity to lead a life of dignity.

Ahmadullah Rahmani was born in Afghanistan in 1947. He studied history in his home country and then from 1970 to 1973 he continued his studies in Germany in the faculty of Business Studies in Heidelberg. He later became a teacher at a secondary school in his home city of Kandahar and worked as an interpreter and translator for the German embassy and the airline Lufthansa. 

After the Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan in 1979 he emigrated with his family to Germany. Other books by Ahmadullah Rahmani are “Mein Freund, der Gefangene von Guantanamo” (“My friend, the prisoner of Guantanamo”) and “Koran, Kalifen und Kalaschnikows”, a book about the origin and the essence of Islam.

This book is available as an ebook:
