ISLAMABAD: Reiterating the government`s commitment of empowering women, Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said that legislation in the parliament would continue to eliminate all discriminatory laws against women.

Talking to a delegation of the MNAs at his chamber, Shaukat Aziz said that the Bill tabled in the National Assembly on Tuesday was a step towards empowering women.

The Prime Minister said that the Bill presented by Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain in the National Assembly on Tuesday enjoyed support of all allied parties. He hoped that the opposition parties would not oppose the Bill, as it was aimed at Women protection and their empowerment. "The government is taking measures for empowering women politically, economically and socially," he added.

Shaukat Aziz said that the women were playing commendable role in every field of life due to the bold steps of President Musharraf. "The incumbent government is striving to eliminate all discriminatory laws and customs against women," he asserted. He said that despite a woman remained prime minister of the country twice but except from making hollow claims and promises did not take any practical step.

The Prime Minister directed the MNAs to ensure their presence during debate on the Bill and do not give a chance to the opposition to break quorum, as it was an important legislation.

End.

Happy Valentine Day !

Women make up a bigger portion of the world popuoation, and further higher population in the Muslim world, due to the bloodsheds, killings and terrorism.

Allowing women taking part in any nation's political, social, educational and technological advances is only their rights.

Allowing women taking part in any nation's political, social, educational and technological advances is only their rights. One way to defeat terrorism, poverty and Israel is to educate each and every Muslim.
