Global peace — countries need women as leaders

Global peace — countries need women as leaders

The Terrorland Report
A woman is a peace-maker and man is worrier by nature, and our world needs independent female leaders today.

THE photo of this woman – uneducated and poor (probably from the deserts of the Subcontinent) but blessed with a kind heart – is being circulated on the Facebook. What The Terrorland could not say in its series of posts on women leaders in the conservative regions of Pakistan (Gilgit-Baltistan, Kashmir, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan), this single photo has said it all!

The kind heart not makes a woman a better mother only but also proves her a better leader. Therefore, our warring countries need women as real and independent leaders to make peace in our polarized world.

After the assassination of former prime minister, Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan is lacking real and independent women leaders on the political stage today. Those women, who speak their mind freely, are victimized by the draconian secret agencies (read ISI and MI), and are forced to resign from active politics.

Pakistan’s militarized and Talibanized society discourages women's active role outside the house. Indeed, we have some women in the armed forces, but they are just cosmetic to deceive the world! Traditionally, themilitary establishment uses women as a strategic card to play its dirty games.

Today, there is not a single female general in the armed forces, and not a single judge in the apex courts of Pakistan. It's a national dilemma at human level, and a major reason behind our suffering. But the ruling class and pillars of the state are happy in the absence of women leaders.

What a shame!
