Our Women's Football Team Captain Is Fighting Hard To Keep The Sport Alive In Pakistan

By Sajeer Shaikh | 5 Jan, 2018

Women’s sports in Pakistan are often undermined and overlooked. We’ve built up our men’s teams to a great extent – which is wonderful. However, we can’t turn a blind eye to our women, especially when they’re filled to the brim with talent. Pakistan’s women’s football team is suffering as a result of this.

Therefore, Hajra Khan – captain of the women’s football team – took to Twitter to voice her concern.

Via Twitter

She explained how she was “battling hard to promote women’s football in Pakistan to keep the game alive.”

She further talked about how the team had been inactive for three years. She expressed her desire to play friendly matches abroad as well. She ended her tweet with a request for help.

Soon, a dialogue was established.

There was some back and forth…

…with Hajra answering many questions that were directed at her.

Hajra managed to start a discussion…

…which is usually the first step towards action.

Soon though, something wonderful happened. People started reaching out for collaborations.

Moreover, people started offering help in various forms. 

People started spreading the word regarding Hajra’s concern as well.

To top it all off, people from across the border reached out too.

While none of this guarantees the revival – rather establishment – of women’s football in Pakistan, it’s a baby step nonetheless. It’s absolutely essential to empower our women and encourage them to display their talent. Pakistan is a land that is filled to the brim with potential. We absolutely cannot let any of it go to waste.
