Woman of Pakistan in Guinness Book

The slogan of so-called Free world about veiled Muslim women of Pakistan has been bellied. They are working in all fields of life shoulder to shoulder with men in medical, engineering, administration, judiciary, army, air force, teaching, and what not. Some have left the US and Europe people wondering by fly commercial and fighter planes while they wear Hijab (they are veiled Muslim women).

Some female pilots are flying in PIA (Pakistan International Airlines), even as Captain. One can also see few females taking training in flying schools. But a female pilot’s biggest achievement, in my opinion, is flying fighter jets in Pakistan Air Force, just as their male counter parts do.

Being female pilots, they have been able to qualify and fulfill the most stringent requirements of a fighter pilot, that is, high ‘g’ maneuvers and other physically and emotionally stressful exercises like interceptions and dog fights etc.

Female fighter pilots have been able to break not only the sound barrier but the psychological barrier (in Pakistan) as well that flying fighter aircraft is the exclusive preserve of men.

On the top is Captain Pilot Shahnaz Laghari who is the World’s first Hijab wearing pilot. She can fly an aeroplane all by herself. Not only has this but she do it while fully covered in veil.

She is the only one in the World who has her name in The Guinness Book of World Record as the First Veiled Pilot. This shows that if one is determined, anything can be achieved and that also by staying within the boundaries of the religion.

This is not all but she is striving for the rights of women in Pakistan. She is serving the women of Pakistan by opening free education centers and sewing centers for poor women in Pakistan.

She participated in General Elections 2013 in Pakistan as an independent candidate from Lahore NA–122. The electoral symbol allotted to her was a cow.

This really is an enormous achievement for a lady as Pakistani culture is considered to be male dominant and it is said that women are highly discouraged to engage in many activities.

WHO KILLED LAK ?..CIA CONNECTION

66 years, on October 16, first Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr Liaquat Ali Khan, was shot at and killed in the afternoon of October 16, 1951 as he stood up to address a public gathering at a park in Rawalpindi city. No one had a clue to this murder because people of Pakistan loved and respected him, and they could not imagine that a Pakistan national could think of a little harm to him.

Mr Liaquat Ali Khan was one of the leaders who struggled hard to gain independence of Pakistan from the shackles of occupying forces, Kingdom of Briton.

The reason behind his murder was that, when invited to USA and pressed by the US Administration to take their word, he had said, “We are a sovereign Nation. We want USA to be our friend, but we will not take dictation.”

1. Extract from an article, “WHO KILLED LAK (Liaquat Ali Khan) ?” published on October 24, 1951 in an Indian magazine:

[…]It was learned within Pakistani Foreign Office that while UK pressing Pakistan for support re Iran, US demanded Pakistan exploit influence with Iran and support Iran transfer oil fields to US. Liaquat declined request. US threatened annul secret pact re Kashmir. Liaquat replied Pakistan had annexed half Kashmir without American support and would be able to take other half. Liaquat also asked US evacuate air bases under pact. Liaquat demand was bombshell in Washington. American rulers who had been dreaming conquering Soviet Russia from Pakistan air bases were flabbergasted. American minds set thinking re plot assassinate Liaquat. US wanted Muslim assassin to obviate international complications. US could not find traitor in Pakistan as had been managed Iran, Iraq, Jordan. Washington rulers sounded US Embassy Kabul. American Embassy contacted Pashtoonistan leaders, observing Liaquat their only hurdle; assured them if some of them could kill Liaquat, US would undertake establish Pashtoonistan by 1952. Pashtoon leaders induced Akbar undertake job and also made arrangements kill him to conceal conspiracy. USG-Liaquat differences recently revealed by Graham report to SC; Graham had suddenly opposed Pakistan although he had never given such indication. […] Cartridges recovered from Liaquat body were American-made, especially for use high-ranking American officers, usually not available in market. All these factors prove real culprit behind assassin is US Government, which committed similar acts in mid-East. “Snakes” of Washington’s dollar imperialism adopted these mean tactics long time ago.

Kashmir ‘mass rape’ survivors fight for justice

More than 26 years ago, Indian soldiers allegedly raped more than 30 women in the Kashmiri villages of Kunan and Poshpora. Those who survived the attack are still fighting for justice, as Aliya Nazki from BBC Urdu reports.

It was 23 February 1991. The people of Kunan, a tiny village in Indian administered Kashmir’s Kupwara district, were retiring for the night after a cold winter day. Zooni and Zarina (not their real names) were also getting ready to go to bed when they heard a series of loud knocks on the door.

At the time, India had started a large scale military operation in an attempt to control a popular insurgency against Indian rule in Kashmir. So-called “cordon and search” operations, locally called “crackdowns”, were becoming routine and still persist to this day. In the 1990s, this would entail Indian security forces isolating an area, getting all the men out, and then searching the houses. The men would be paraded in front of an informer – and suspected militants or those deemed sympathisers would be picked up and taken away.

When Zooni and Zareena saw soldiers on their doorstep that night, remembering that day makes their eyes fill with tears even now. “We were getting ready for bed when the soldiers came. They took the men away. Some started drinking alcohol. I was holding my two-year-old daughter in my arms when they tried to grab me.
“I resisted, and in the scuffle she fell out of my arms, and out of the window. She was crippled for life.
“Three soldiers grabbed me, tore my pheran (shirt) – I don’t even know what all happened after that. There were five of them. I still remember their faces.”

Zareena was also in the same house. It had only been 11 days since her wedding. “I had returned from my parents’ house that very day. “Some soldiers asked my mother-in-law about all the new clothes hanging in the room, so she told them, ‘here, she is our new daughter-in-law, our new bride’. “What happened after that, I cannot begin to describe it. We haven’t just been wronged, what we have faced is an infinite injustice. Even today when we see soldiers we start shaking with fear.”

The people of Kunan and neighbouring Poshpora accuse the Indian army of carrying out a planned mass rape of the women in these two far-flung villages. They also claim that while the women were gang-raped, the men were subjected to horrific torture, and that they have been fighting for justice these last 26 years.

And now it seems a group of young Kashmiri women are determined to wipe this dust away.
In 2013 they filed a petition to reopen the case in the state High Court.
But not all. We spoke with Nayeema Ahmad Mahjoor, who heads the state commission for women’s rights.
She told us very clearly that she believes that this crime was committed against the people of Kunan and Poshpora, and that this should be proved in court.
