ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Human Rights, Dr Shireen Mazari has been critical of the ban in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on male chief guests at government girls’ schools.
Last month, the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa imposed a ban on male chief guests along with media and social media coverage of functions/programmes held at government girls’ schools in the province.
Speaking on the floors of the National Assembly, Mazari hoped that the decision would be reviewed by the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.
The minister also spoke on the proposed watta-satta marriage of two female doctors in Rojhan and how it had been stopped.
On November 1 it was reported that a panchayat in Rojhan had ordered a family to accept the marriage proposal of their two daughters in a watta-satta agreement or withdraw claims from agricultural land.
According to the minister, two people and not a panchayat had passed the order.
