    What a powerful photograph this is. And how much times have changed (women). And also not changed in some respects (poverty).

    I don’t know about Nadeem sahab, but I won’t tolerate exploitation of females by putting them in hard labour.

    This is inhumane. Nothing to do with sexism or machismo as some have tried to paint it.

    “It makes one wonder how we came to lock ourselves in patriarchal prison, pushing half of our population off the public sphere. ”

    It might have happened, possibly, when we realized embracing the Western idea of pushing our women into the public sphere brought us absolutely nothing and we were at the bottom of the world.

    And though some drama-prone people would like to still make that claim, looking at the rest of the third world, particularly Iraq and Afghanistan, assures us we don’t have that excuse anymore. Having a military that’s in the top 10 in the world is at least worth that much.
