Begum Salma Ahmed

Enterprise - - Editor’s desk - Uzma Ali Dubai

Apro­pos the in­ter­view of Begum Salma Ahmed, pub­lished in March is­sue of En­ter­prise, re­silient women like her are very rare in our so­ci­ety. Es­pe­cially the pa­tri­ar­chal mind­set that we fol­low dis­cour­ages women to make a ca­reer and does not al­low them to work in heavy in­dus­tries. Begum Salma Ahmed did it - and that too on her own. I only knew her name as a woman ship­breaker but it amazed me to know that be­sides be­ing an ex­porter, she has been an MNA and pres­i­dent of WCCI and PAWE. Ladies like her are a bea­con of light for to­day’s young girls.

It is over­whelm­ing to see that our women are not only home-mak­ers but ex­em­plary busi­ness­women and peace­mak­ers too. I look for­ward to read­ing about the pro­gramme Begum Salma Ahmed and oth­ers are do­ing with ‘Aman ki Asha.’
