December 6, 2019

LAHORE:Wife of Punjab governor and president of Pakistan Girls Guide Association (PGGA ) Punjab chapter Perveen Sarwar has said that those involved in violence against women don’t deserve pardon, adding: “We need to empower women and make them strong as only through such measures Pakistan will be strong nation.”

No doubt educated and empowered women are symbol of bright future of Pakistan, said Perveen Sarwar while addressing the concluding session of the seminar on “16 Days of activism against girls violence” here on Thursday at Pakistan Girls Guide Association Punjab headquarters.

Minister Human Rights and Minorities Ejaz Alam, MPA Sadia Sohail Rana, Chairperson Colleges Nadeema Zafar, Executive member Punjab Girls Guide Association Nighat Arshad, Coordinator Punjab Girls Guide Association Salma Sajjad and others were present. Speaking on the occasion, Perveen Sarwar said that PGGA is providing training to young girls in all over Punjab including Lahore.

Educated girls are the sign of bright future of Pakistan; if we want to see a prosperous Pakistan for that we first need to empower our women, she said.

Ejaz Alams said women are being empowered in PTI govt. Every religion teaches us lesson to give respect to women and protect their rights. PTI MPA Saadia Sohail said that PGGA is polishing girl’s leadership talent; training of a woman is training of entire society. All crimes in society are linked with weak mental health.
