After moving to Islamabad and put to work by her mother as a housemaid, she learned to read and write the language by spending time with school-going children in different homes. She is about twenty-years-old now and whatever little leisure time she gets, she tries to watch soaps and films like girls her age but also enjoys reading Urdu poetry and short fiction.

The writer goes along with Imran Khan in asserting that modern education in madressahs would bring students to the mainstream of society. A number of top leaders of terrorist organisations are highly educated professionals – including doctors and computer experts. Imran Khan’s previous stance regarding negotiations with militants and the stoppage of the Nato supply lines has already been negated by the ongoing acts of terrorism.

An educated woman

Education plays an important role in the development of any society and it is a pillar on which a society stands. Education is important for both genders. Islam emphasises attaining knowledge, this can be understood simply by the first word taught to our holy Prophet (SAW) by Allah which was ‘Iqra’ which means read. The first commandment given to Muslims was to read, and reading is a part of acquiring of knowledge. This has been highlighted directly and indirectly in over five hundred places in the holy Quran as an essential duty and responsibility of all Muslims.
