The official seal of Harvard University bears the four Latin words "Veritas Christo et Ecclesiae” ("the truth of Christ and the church”). Today, most reproductions of Harvard’s seal omit the last three words. But it seems that all too many of Harvard’s faculty and governance have decided to ignore the first one as well.

On Saturday, I was honoured to attend the launch of the International Sindhi Women's Organisation. Here was a group of brave, principled, and intelligent British Pakistani women who had come together to talk about their future, their fears, and most importantly, their rights.
They discussed forced marriage (and what to do about it),"honour" killings, and sharia law among other important issues that affect them.
