    Major General Nigar Johar becomes first woman to get promoted to lieutenant general

    Major General Nigar Johar has been promoted to Lieutenant General, becoming the first woman in the country.

    The Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations said that she has been appointed as first female Surgeon General of Pakistan Army. Lieutenant General Nigar Johar hails from Panjpeer, District Swabi, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the DG ISPR said.

    In 2017, she became the third woman officer to reach the rank of major general. The lieutenant general is the daughter of Colonel Qadir, who served in the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

    She is also the niece of retired Major Mohammad Aamir, a former Pakistan Army officer who served in the ISI as well.

    Wow, standards for identifying as a woman is insanely high in Pakistan

    Congratulations to her.

    Happy for her but women should be allowed to be in all fields of the military not just in nursing and other gender-assigned careers. Fatima Shafi who somehow couldnít become a pilot with the PAF, is now a very successful commercial pilot with Delta Airlines in the US. Thereís no reason why women like her could not become fighter pilots in Pakistan.

    There are several female pilots in PAF, first please educate yourself. Heck there was even a very popular movie on the life of Marium Mukhtiar who embraced shahadat after his plane malfunctioned in 2015 on a routine training mission.

    I am very familiar with Marium Mukhtar. But there are no female fighter pilots with PAF as of today. Happy to be proven wrong; but I am not wrong. Perhaps you should take your own advice and educate yourself.

    From 2013:

    https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-as...-fighter-pilot


    The Pakistan Air Force has welcomed its first combat-ready female fighter pilot.

    Ayesha Farooq is one of 19 female pilots in the force but the only one currently qualified to go to war


    Please realize your level, thanks.

    Again, youíre very wrong. None of them qualified to become fighter pilots. Some left the force and others were assigned to engineering and other roles. As of today, PAF has no female fighter pilots.

    You are even stupider than I previously thought

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayesha_Farooq

    She now flies missions in a Chinese-made Chengdu J-7 fighter jet alongside her 24 male colleagues in Squadron 20.


    Look I made it easy so that even a dodo like you can understand

    Not true. PAF is very inclusive when it comes to female pilots. If you are good enough and pass the exams and the physical tests, you will make it.

    The numbers are obviously very low because very few girls are interested. A medical career in the military is far more appealing.

    This same debate came up in a defense forum that you are a member just few months ago and some very senior members with good contacts with PAF stated categorically that there were no female fighter pilots. I take their words over any Wikipedia entries.

    I am not familiar with the experiences of other female cadets but Fatima Shafi in that Instagram post clearly talked about the challenges and extra hurdles she faced as a woman. She ultimately switched to flight engineer and had to move to the United States to pursue her dreams of being a pilot.
