Nigar Johar Khan becomes the third woman in Pak history to hold the Major General rank
Major General Nigar Johar Khan has become the third woman in Pakistan’s history to hold the rank of a major general in the Pakistan Army, Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari announced via Twitter on Tuesday.
She is a two-star general in Pak Army’s Medical Corps. Apart from being a doc, she is a sharpshooter too.
Pakistan has shown that it is committed to gender equality and women empowerment. Gender-specific jobs assigned by the ancient patriarchy are now adapting to the realities of the 21st century. A Female Member of National Assembly (MNA) Wajiha Qamar revealed that Maj Gen Nigar Johar Khan hails “from a Pashtun family of Sawabi.”
