NCSW Condemns an attack on a lady doctor in Khyber-Pukhtunkhuwa

Nov 30, -0001

The National Commission on the Status of Women strongly condemns the attack on Dr.Gulali in Khyber Pukhtunkhuwa and terms it a deplorable and cowardly act. The Commission believes that this attack not aimed at an individual; rather it was meant to discourage and eliminate women who are performing duties in public sector. The attack underscores the scale of the militant threat to progressive, secular and moderate forces especially women in Pakistan. The socially aware women who are rendering valuable social services are willfully being targeted.
The NCSW demands from the government that it should not let the terrorists play with the lives of progressive forces in the country and should devise a comprehensive strategy to check such elements. The National Commission on the Status of Women also demands from the provincial authorities to initiate an investigation and inquiry into the incident and make all-out efforts to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to books.
