She is a great lady and spiritual individual. She has achieved a land mark in studies, media and politics. Being a member of Mazari (Baloch) family it was almost impossible to achieve such a mile stone but she did.
She has worked as intellectual volunteer for Pakistani Nation.
She has been a fairless spokes person of Pakistan against America.
