Making Pakistan proud, Pakistan Army’s Christian Major Saiqa Gulzar has bagged a gold medal during training in the United States of America. Hailing from Vehari, a village about 100 km away from Multan, Saiqa has made her mark in the profession. It is refreshing and commendable in all definitions to see a woman, that too from a minority religion, overcoming all the hurdles to excel in her career.
Even a bigger feat, in this male-dominated profession, Saiqa made her mark by clinching a medal during training in the USA among 52 other participants from other countries.
Hailing from a humble background, Saiqa is the daughter of a local teacher Gulzar Masih Sidhu. While the profession is physically and mentally challenging, often deemed ‘unsafe and unfit’ for women, Saiqa’s success is multi-dimensional and her story is an inspiration for us in a number of contexts.
Pakistanis also extended their heartiest congratulations and well wishes for Major Saiqa on her achievement:
That's our girl ?
