The Brighter side of Pakistan!

(Fatima Afzaal, Karachi)

Pakistan is the world’s sixth most populous country, which is considered among the developing countries of the world. Pakistan has many issues like, poverty; shortage of water; power generation; quality education; women empowerment; child labor and child brides etc. But it doesn’t mean that there is nothing good and able to appreciation inside the country. It’s not good to keep stick yourself along with the darkness. Yes, it’s understandable that ups and down is part of anyone’s life, but if we have darker side in our life then we also have a brighter side which makes us happy and keep energetic to move ahead in our lives. Pakistan considered as male dominant society where, a female faces a lot of barriers for moving forward on daily basis in the society.

Despite of this bitter reality we have a number of women in our country, which didn’t gave up and struggle a lot and made their own identity. List of these proud women’s starts from the brave ladies Fatima Jinnah and Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan afterwards it lead by Benazir Bhutto who became the first female Prime Minister of any Muslim state from Pakistan. And now in 2018 the number of proud Pakistani women in the list has increased.
