Title: Women attending the masjid


Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

Can you send me (or direct me to) few vidoes and essays/articles with counter argumnets to this "Maulana"'s (Shaikh Akram Nadvi) bold statements?

This fitnah needs to be addressed with proofs and hikmat (wisdom).

I really appreciate your help in this matter.
