In a tweet, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Maj  Gen Babar Iftikhar said the officer has also been appointed as the first female  surgeon general of the Pakistan Army. 

She hails from Panjpeer village in Swabi district, the statement added.

 

In 2017, the newly promoted lieutenant general became the third woman officer in  the history of the Pakistan Army to reach the rank of major general. 

She is the daughter of Col Qadir, who served in the Inter-Services  Intelligence (ISI), and is the niece of Maj (r) Aamir, a former Pakistan Army  officer who served in the ISI as well. 

Both her parents died in a car accident some 30 years ago.

According to PID, not only is the newly promoted lieutenant general a doctor,  but also a sharp shooter. She completed her schooling from Presentation Convent  Girls High School, Rawalpindi and graduated from Army Medical College in 1985. 

In 2015, she received a Master’s degree in public health from the University  of Health Sciences, Lahore. She also has the honour of being the first woman  officer to be given command of a unit/hospital of the armed forces.

 Congratulating the officer on her promotion, Leader of the Opposition in the  National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif said that this sent a powerful message to girls  and young women, ‘to aspire for the impossible in life’.
