Women in Pakistan are the victims of worst gender discrimination and human rights violations. When it comes to working, women seem to be forced into certain roles and responsibilities. These roles and responsibilities push women down and create an unjust standard of living between the two sexes. Due to cultural restraints, women are either not allowed to work or they are allowed to do only certain jobs. Mostly well-educated women enter the following common professions: teaching and medicines, while the rest of the professions are for men. These restrictions often seem to elevate a man’s status and importance in society. The World Development Report 2012 reveals that the female participation in the workforce of Pakistan is a mere 28 percent. Compared to other countries, such as Vietnam where the percentage of females in the workplace is 77 percent, this figure is a disgrace for us. How will a country progress, if half of its population won’t work? Pakistan’s overwhelmingly patriarchal society largely relegates women to domestic roles, but in the northern Hunza valley, women are breaking taboos. They are receiving training for jobs traditionally done by men. From taking the role of a carpenter to providing services of a tour guide on the Himalayan peaks, these women are becoming self-reliant, independent and productive members of society by removing cultural barriers which were holding them back. They are revolutionising the way women are perceived in the eyes of the people and encouraging other women to enter many male-denominated professions. It is [Read More…]
This refers to the letter ‘Attract investors’ (Dec17) by Zia Ameer. The writer’s yearning seems to be a lone voice in the wilderness. How a foreign investor can think of investing in Pakistan when the rulers themselves have no trust in this country and prefer to run their businesses abroad. Additionally, widespread corruption from top to bottom exists and tax evasion/money laundering is a way of life in this country while bureaucratic hurdles scare away those who are willing to invest money. This is the reason that foreign investors are turning to India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Vietnam for putting their money in these countries. Even Pakistani domestic entrepreneurs are reluctant to invest and have moved their plants abroad. Regrettably, this part of the world has been maligned by unscrupulous businessmen who continue to have a hey-day and do not allow space to upright investors. Arshad Karachi Click for detailed story
ISLAMABAD: British boxer Amir Khan paid tribute to legendary fighter Muhammad Ali Saturday, calling him the “people’s champion” and saying Ali’s life outside the ring had inspired him to help those in need. The WBC Silver welterweight title holder, currently in Pakistan to open a boxing academy and carry out charity work, said Ali’s larger-than-life personality had earned him millions of fans around the globe. “I was always looking up to him. A great fighter, a guy who wasn’t only just a fighter but also a great personality outside the boxing world as well,” the 29-year-old said. “He would say ‘I’m gonna knock him out in the fourth round, and he used to do it in the fourth round. That’s what I used to love about Muhammad Ali.’” Khan added that Ali’s fighting style, which combined the speed and agility of a lightweight with the power of a heavyweight, had made him a unique fighter. “If you looked at the way he used to fight he was very very different to any other fighter. “He was a heavyweight, where he was really, really big, he was heavy. But he moved like a lightweight. So he floated like a butterfly and he did sting like a bee because his shots were fast, powerful and explosive. And he used to hurt his guys, you know, he hurt his opponents.” In addition to being widely regarded as the best boxer in history, Ali was outspoken in his fight for social justice, becoming a [Read More…]
