Pak gets its first Hindu woman ASI – Pushpa Kohli
For the first time in the history of Pakistan, a Hindu girl has become a police officer and been posted as the Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) in Sindh. The news was first shared by human rights activist and blogger Kapil Dev on his Twitter handle on Tuesday night.
He tweeted, "Pushpa Kolhi has become the first woman from the Hindu community who has qualified the provincial competitive examination and become Assistant Sub Inspector in Sindh Police. More power to her!"
In January this year another Pakistani Hindu girl Suman Pawan Bodani, belonging to an underdeveloped rural area of Sindh - Shahdadkot, was appointed a judge to the civil and judicial magistrate after she stood 54th in order of merit.
Hindus form the biggest minority community in Pakistan. If official estimates are to be believed, around 75 lakh Hindus live in Pakistan while the community heads claim that there are over 90 lakh Hindus living in the country. Most of Pakistan’s Hindu population resides in Sindh province.
