Story of A gril from Hunza valley

 

I belong to Hunza valley, and my father is a retired senior police officer. My education up to secondary level was done in Public School and colleges Jutial Gilgit, followed by a law degree from International Islamic University in Islamabad. Through my father, I found out about the injustices done in the society, especially to women. Once, I saw a young girl who had been forcibly married off to a man double her age by her parents who had taken money in return for their child. This was a gross violation of the girl’s right to choose a partner but she was now betrothed to a man from whom she could not get away. Her husband had continuously abused the girl who had approached the local police for protection but due to absence of a female legal counsel, let alone a judge, she was at the mercy of a man who always looked for opportunities to exploit her. Unable to receive a divorce, she was helpless – I still remember the tears in her eyes. That was the moment I decided to become lawyer. It wasn’t an easy journey. In the beginning, neither lawyers nor my colleagues in the judiciary took me seriously, but I overcame this challenge through consistent hard work and faith in my commitment. Now, by the grace of God, I am a judge. I have the power to influence situations where I can set things right in the light of our constitution and established law. I couldn’t change that girl’s life but I have the chance to make a difference and I am not going to let it go to waste.
