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. 

The World of ‎Malala‬

The World of Malala

Today  I am not writing but copying a post about  ‪#‎Malala‬ written by  Ashraf Chaudhry,  which he posted on his Facebook page with the title of

Malala Yousufzai 

  " To the World of ‪#‎Malala‬ via Ashraf Chaudhry " 


The innocent and impressionable Malala is being misused to portray image of Pakistan as if it a country of barbaric people where girls are chained and denied of education. The world must know that Pakistan's schools and colleges are full of girls and boys, no discrimination at all. The culture of one tribal belt does not represent Pakistan. By the way, Swat, Malala's home town, has the highest literacy in Pakistan.

The world must know that we had women governor in Pakistan
 (Ra'ana Liaquat Ali Khan)  when women in Switzerland were not eligible to cast votes. 


The World in general and USA in particular must know that Pakistan had women opposition leader in the times when fragile and black Miss Rosa Parks was being beaten in the bus in Montgomery, Alabama for sitting on the seat reserved for white people.

Pakistan had women Prime Minister twice. Pakistan has had Speaker National Assembly and Governor State Bank. 

Recently I was in Quetta, a conservative city, I addressed the students for three days. Halls were packed with girls and boys. No discrimination at all. 

Pakistan is a land of diverse cultures. An incident in one part of Pakistan should not be used to malign and tarnish the image of entire Pakistan. Attack on her is condemnable but the way she is being misused, abused and exploited is more condemnable. 

The Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional in the world, Arfa Karim, is from Pakistan. The Fastest Women in South Asia, Naseem Hameed, is from Pakistan. Women in Pakistan are flying latest war jets, they are doctors, engineers, entrepreneurs. 

If one section in Pakistan is chained and enslaved, that is, media. Give dollars to the owners of TV Channels and newspapers, they can sell their souls.

Different Roles of Pakistani Women in Society



Women, The most important part of any society around the globe, including Pakistan perform their duties as  an active part of their countries , societies  and families very well.  

Pakistani women either educated or uneducated, from rural areas or urban areas, working or non working,   they are also an awaken part of our society and play a vital role in our society, we can see, they play role in every field and perform very well.

No doubt we have a long list of amazing women who made us proud in the world. We have women Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers, Teachers, Scientists, Pilots, Politicians,  Artists, Journalists, Writers, IT professionals etc etc etc....., even if they are not educated they worked at their own level,  working in fields, at homes and help their families financially and emotionally as well.
