Activist slams HBL for its regressive and shockingly discriminatory policy against women

The columnist added, "We all need to expose commercial banks who are violating Pakistan's constitution''.

HBL women discrimination A women rights activist, anchorperson, and columnist, Dr.Arfana Mallah, has criticized the Habib Bank of Pakistan for its discriminatory and derogatory policy towards women.

Sharing the incident, Dr.Arfana Mallah, tweeted, “Today, I applied for a Credit Card in the HBL bank. It requires two references, I gave names of my female colleagues, and the banker told me that only male references are acceptable. I inquired, is there any policy or document you have about it, he refused to share but said it is the policy of the bank.”

The columnist added, “We all need to expose commercial banks who are violating Pakistan’s constitution, where all citizens are equal. What is the policy of the state bank, why is a commercial bank discriminating based on gender? Is it the policy of all banks or only the HBL is doing this if so, the commercial bank is insulting the women of Pakistan.”

After the tweets went viral on social media, the bank contacted Dr. Arfana to explain its policy. She tweeted, “Today, the HBL approached me and told me that there is a policy regarding women’s reference. I suggested to them to display it at the entry point of every branch, to stop this misinterpretation of the law of evidence. It’s good the HBL cleared their stance.”
