Pakistan’s women combat pilots

Here is a good first for a country which was, until recently, opposed to having women in all but a select few professions (though we did spawn the first female head of state, Benazir Bhutto, of a Muslim nation in modern times).

A lot of traditional males are very disturbed by the growing role that females are starting to play in our society with complaints about it being against our religion, but that is a very myopic view and has nothing to do with Islam. Anyway, that’s going to be a lengthy topic so will stop here. All I’ll say is that it’s encouraging to see some positive change such as this.
