He described the ruling elite as a hurdle between women and their rights in the country. He demanded the government build separate women universities and hospitals in major cities.

Ameerul Azim lamented that certain elements were trying to exploit the slogan of women rights and attack Islam in the garb of their campaign for the so-called human rights. He said majority of the women in the country were deprived of their rights by the ruling elite, feudal lords and the capitalist system. Those in power, he added, were never wanted to implement the laws granting women every right in the society. The ruling elite, he said, must be held accountable for their sins. “Women should question the rulers why they have been deprived of their rights.”
