Quetta: For the first time in the history of Balochistan, a female has been appointed as an Additional Advocate General of the province.

Mrs. Sabira Islam started her law career in 2009 dealing with criminal, civil and family cases facing a lot of hurdles on her way.

“Women are discriminated, you are underestimated but if you have determination and truth within you and you take your profession as a belief and if you have taken it as a challenge and want to deliver it for society, for humanity then all hurdles die down with time. So I did not make my hurdles a mountain for myself, I made a way out of them.”

Persistence is the key to success, according to Sabira

“I stayed a regular practicing lawyer, did not take any breaks. One of the factors of success is also persistence.”

Saying the main part is fulfilling the responsibility

“It is easy to reach a position, delivering it is a very big responsibility. I will try that the position Allah has blessed me with, I am able to work for others through that. Your achievement in this profession is you brought someone relief and helped wipe their tears.”

Sabira has a message for all young aspiring lawyers

“Whichever profession you go into, and whoever joins this profession, with sincerity and regularity you will have to get attached to it. Your achievement in this profession is you brought someone relief and helped wipe their tears.”

Moving in the right direction this is the fourth time a woman has been appointed as a government official in the current government

Sabira was the only one when she started off however now, she has 10 women in her chamber alone
