Pakistan is said be a country, which does not permit women to work they way men are doing and serving the state at their best; however, number of instances are to be found where women are much more efficient than men. Shazia Parveen is one of them who has proved that females are not inferior to men by accepting a challenging job of fire-fighter.
Shazia, who belongs to Vehari near Multan, is the first Pakistani female who joins Rescue1122 as a professional fire-fighter.
Shazia faced lots of opposition and had been ridiculed at the start of her career as a fire-fighter. Men used to laugh at her when they came to know that a female was serving as a rescuer. But later, her devotion and dedication in her job made their mouths shut who got convinced by her determination for her work.
As the primitive ideology prevails in the country, especially suburbs and in countryside areas, a female fighter was an utterly new thing for Pakistani society. But, accepting it as a challenge, Parveen did not quite and won grace and respect by her firmness and hard work.
Although female are serving and working almost equally in all major fields, this is an unprecedented in Pakistan that a female belongs to a less developed area becomes a professional fire-fighter.
