Demand for girls school in Baldia

KARACHI: The local womenfolk of Itehad Town of Baldia, labeled as one of the strongholds of Taliban, staged a protest on Thursday, demanding establishment of girls’ school in the area.

A large number of women and young girls participated in the rally, organised by Takleeq Foundation at Karachi Press Club on Thursday. They were holding banner and placards and chanted slogans in favor of their demands.

“There is not a single school in UC-01, UC-2 and UC-03 of Itehad town and there is only one school for girls in the entire town is in the UC-4, due to which the children, especially female students are not able to attend the schools,” said Najma, a participant.

Participants said majority of residents were Pakhtun, who did not have enough resources to bear education expenses for their girls.

“We conducted a survey, and found at least 1,000 girls cannot fo to school,” said Sheerin Soomro, Constituency Coordinator for NA-239, of Takhleeq Foundation.

During the rally, 300 girl students signed a campaign and demanded government to establish a school in the their area.
