    “Pakistan is my country and I was born here, I was raised here and I think there is no match to Pakistan to anywhere in the world,” said Brigadier Nigar Johar, Deputy Commandant, CMH Rawalpindi.

    “Think of all those Islamic states, think of all those developing nations, this is the only country which has had female general officers. No one else,” she continued.

    Speaking about Pakistani women, a female aeronautical engineer, who works on different systems of the aircraft said, “Pakistani women are hard, they are brave, they are strong”.

    “Terrorist before self, and country before anything else. This is my country, this my place, these are my people,” she added.

    Another female officer spoke about the kind of work she does in the Pakistan Army, saying,”We get bombing missions. I find those interesting”.
