Ms. Fatima Jinnah

First Women's Rights Activist in Asia


Tall , lean , decent, sophisticated , a very well dressed white hair lady's very first introduction is , the sister of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, founder of Pakistan.

She is Fatima Jinnah , a dental surgeon, biographer, states woman, and one of the founding leaders of  state of Pakistan, but here I want to point out her role as a women right activist. 


She was the first woman in Asia who found an exclusive female student association , " Women Students Federation " in 1941.   Fatima Jinnah also played a pivotal role in civil rights and introduced the women's rights movement in the Pakistan Movement. She founded the All Pakistan Women Association (APWA) after independence   which to date is functioning as Asia's top institution to serve and protect women's rights.


She herself became a role model not only for the Muslims women of South Asia, but for
the women of whole Asian society. she worked for the promotion of women’s rights and privileges in Pakistan under very difficult circumstances.
She is the name of wisdom and sacrifice and social service. she left all the riches and comfort of her life as well as her career as a surgeon, remaining unmarried and dedicated her life to serving the Pakistan and its people specially the women of Pakistan. 


We are all proud of Miss Fatima Jinnah. May Allah bless her soul.



Paying tribute to his sister, Quaid e Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah once said, "My sister was like a bright ray of light and hope whenever I came back home and met her. Anxieties would have been much greater and my health much worse, but for the restraint imposed by her"

Green Girls

Green Girls of Pakistan rock the ground.



Pakistan's women cricket team


This time Pakistani women rock the cricket ground and made the nation proud as well as our man cricket team did.
 Pakistan's women cricket team beat Netherlands by 20 runs in the rain-shortened match and qualify for the ongoing Women’s World T20, according to ESPN cric info.

 A big Wow for the women team.!!! In a society infested with forbiddance of women’s freedom thinking about to form a women cricket team that represent the nation globally is just like asking for the moon.  Despite the fact that the women team largely gone unnoticed and most Pakistanis are still unknowing the fact that Pakistan has a women’s cricket team, the green girls persistently show their performance and raise the national flag in International arena.


Although all team members are doing really well in this scenario but I like to mention the name of Sana Mir, captain of Pakistan’s cricket team. She led her team to an Asian Games Gold medal in 2010. Her marvelous leg spin bowling stood her at the 8th step with 607 points in the list for bowlers.   She is the only Pakistani in the ICC T 20 Rankings for women. (click here to read more). Hope Pakistan green girls will do great in T20.

Burka Avenger, fights for girl’s schools in Pakistan

Burka Avenger,  fights for girl’s schools in Pakistan

Burka Avenger


Today Geo Tv is going to launch the first animated series “ Burka Avenger”, is the first South Asian ninja who wields books and pens as weapons. 

Wonder Woman, Cat Woman and Super girl now have a Pakistani counterpart in the pantheon of female superheroes, Pakistan’s first ever very own superheroine “The Burka Avenger”.  Meet her; the desi superwoman is a mild mannered teacher who has secret martial art skills. She uses a flowing black burqa to hide her identity as she fights local bad people who want to shut down the girl’s school.

The action-based cartoon, Burka Avenger, is a brainchild of pop singer and former band member of Awaz, HaroonRashid, and will make its debut on Geo TV in early August. The cartoon is definitely a mirror to our society which suffers at the hands of extremists — those blowing up schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to oppose girls’ education. But limitations only give birth to heroes like Malala Yousafzai and, now, the Burka Avenger.  Haroon said that the purpose behind this cartoon to emphasize the girl education in Pakistan.

 Burka Avenger has yet to launch on TV, but she is creating quite an impression in a country where female literacy is estimated at a grim 12% and the Taliban are continuing a campaign which has seen hundreds of girls' schools blown up in the north-west.

Well thumbs up!!!  Hope that she will leave a good impact on our society and helps to solve problems or clear the misconceptions about girl education.
