Pakistan women's wing alleges eviction

09/29/2009 10:51 PM | By Ashfaq Ahmed Chief Reporter

Dubai: Members of the Pakistan Ladies Wing have alleged that they have been evicted from the Pakistan Association in Dubai (PAD) on the pretext of "being modern".

"We have been asked not to enter our office on the premises of the Pakistan Association in Dubai after we developed differences with the management of the association," said Naheed Nafees, chief advisor and former chairperson of the Pakistan Ladies Wing.

However, Riaz Farooq, President of the PAD, has denied the charges saying that these were baseless allegations. He said that he never barred the Ladies Wing members from coming to the association. However, he acknowledged that there were some differences on certain issues.

Speaking at a function organised to bid farewell to the outgoing Pakistani Consul General Dr Saeed Mohmand on Monday, Nafees alleged that some members of the PAD used foul language against the members of the ladies wing.

"They categorically told us not to enter the association and have been telling others that 'these are modern women and do not represent Pakistan", she said.

Nafees added that the ladies wing comprises educated and respected women and has been organising various social, cultural, musical and religious programmes.

When contacted, Farooq told Gulf News that differences were sorted out during a meeting at the Pakistan Consulate, but Ladies Wing members did not return to the association. He said that the differences started with the formation of the Girls Wing, a body of young Pakistani girls. "It seems that they feel threatened from the Girls Wing but in fact these girls are young and of different age groups and have their own activities. The women members of the Wing are our sisters and they are always welcome to the association," he added.
