Sharing the stage with Dr. Nasira Iqbal – A Living Legend
It was an honor & a privilege to share the stage with a woman so accomplished, so strong yet so humble - Dr. Nasira Javed Iqbal, a living Legend on my show Idea Croron Ka Episode 7, Season 3 (recorded on the 2nd of November, 2018).
She especially became a part of the show to give her message to the youth of the country & the message was simple yet clear. "Stay positive about the potential of Pakistan; we have come a long way & we are destined to shine".
Here's a quick snap of Justice Sahiba's illustrious career:
Ms. Iqbal has a degree in intellectual property law from Punjab University, a Master of Laws degree (cum laude) from Harvard Law School, and a Master of Laws from Punjab University.
She was one of the first five women to be appointed to the Lahore High Court, where she served as a justice from 1994 to 2002. She is also the president of an activist group, the Concerned Citizens of Pakistan Society (CCP). Among other honors, she received the Fatima Jinnah Medal for Women’s Rights in 2006, the Woman of the Year Star Award in 2007.
She is also a former president of the Lahore High Court Bar Association. Currently, she is an honorary legal advisor to the International Women’s Club, Lahore, and the All Pakistan Women's Association, Punjab; a trustee of Transparency International; and a member of the Pakistan Women Lawyers’ Association.
May Allah keep her healthy & shining for years to come!
