My Message for Daughters of Chitral
ďKahtay han Aurat agr Beti ha tou rehmat ha, agr Biwi ha tou
shohar k nisf iman ki waris ha, agr Maa ha tou aun k qadmoon k
nichay Janat haĒ
Impressive isnít it? This phrase makes us realize about the respect
and pride a girl holds either she be a daughter, sister, wife or
mother. Woman is the symbol of love. In a society like Pakistan
women are responsible for nurturing their families with strong
family ties and inculcating ethics in their children.
Today the great purpose of writing this article for me is to share
my opinions with all youngsters especially with all my chitrali
sisters those who are living out of their home for the purpose of
study. We all are well known about the issues that have come
prominent in Karachi within a few months, nothing is hidden. It is
really disappointing for all the true chitralies and even has put
black spot on our civilized culture. In todayís world, influence of
media has rapidly grown which ultimately has resulted in exposing
even piety issues. Consequently, Chitral is a small area whatever
we do, we are noticed by everyone. . We should never forget that we
are known by our rich culture and heritage either we are living in
any part of the world. Our culture is from one of those rare
cultures in World, which is appreciated across the borders.
Sincerity, love, hospitality, loyalty and peace are the hall marks
of our personalities and culture. However, things are changing and
some pertinent issues have diverted all our attention towards it.
Itís a human trait that we try and trust each individual we meet
but it should not be the case we should remain vigilant and
critical all the time in order to secure our heritage and culture.
May be its lack of guidance here, or maybe we forget our rich
cultural norms and values or may be it is just because of our blind
trust on everyone, as a result we are facing this type of critical
Today being as a daughter and sister I want to tell all my sisters.
Our parents are born in a green and peaceful valley thatís why they
are not aggressive by nature, mostly which are seen in our neighbor
areas (tribal areas). Our parents trust us and leave us to breath
in the air of freedom . Itís time we ask ourselves if we know the
meaning of freedom .Don Ďt use this freedom and parents love in a
wrong way, it is a clear indication that, you may lose their love,
and you may build a barrier in your own way just because of your
immature steps. Donít reject the advice and guidance of your
parents because they have more experience of life. Your this kind
of attitudes compel them to come on execution and their sincere
loving nature will one day be changed into a cruel one.
Daily itís a common head line of every newspaper a father/brother
killed her daughter/sister in the name of dignity. We are blessed
not to be the part of such a culture which does not care or respect
relationships. We are living in freedom where we want to move for
purpose of studies our parents send there. Itís their trust on us
and on their guidance they know that, we protect their reputation.
Our parents do not want to impose an unbearable burden on us. Even
our culture has protected womanís pride.
But unfortunately, we are not feeling hesitation when we are to
demolish our parents inherit dignity. Girls should keep in mind
that their parents will take better decisions for their lives and
they should always keep them in your trust. . We know that, they
were always with us when we were doing a little thing.
This is my humble request and exert to all my sisters, before going
to take any step. Just come out of yourself and think about the
people those who are a part of you. You are not the only owner of
your life. For whole life your one wrong step will be notoriety for
them. Always respect yourself; people who do not respect themselves
are not able to respect anybody else. Show yourself as mature and
educated person. Always share your views with your family members
then you will know that, how much life is easy when your family is
with you in your every step.
