Islamabad: Zoha Malik Sher became the fifth female member of her family to pass the Central Superior Service (CSS) exam, leaving people in the deeply conservative Pakistan in awe of her.
Her story first appeared in a Independent Urdu shortly after Federal Public Service Commission announced CSS results for 2019.
According to the report, before Zoha Malik Sher, her four sisters namely Laila , Shireen, Sassi and Marvi were already serving in different government departments after clearing CSS exams.
Social media was flooded with congratulatory messages for the extraordinary achievements made by the five sisters until Saturday when some people started criticizing the youngest sister and what they called flawed CSS system.
The reason behind criticism seemed to be some purported tweets of Zoha Malik Sher which she had allegedly posted in the past.
The Twitter account believed to be run by Zoha Malik no longer exists,but it was not clear whether it was deleted after she was targeted for expressing her political views in the past as an independent Pakistani citizen.
Screenshots of some tweets purported to show that Zoha Malik was a bit critical of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Veracity of the screenshots of Zoha Sher Malik’s tweets could not be independently confirmed.
Some PTI workers also criticized the critics for attacking the woman, defending her right to have an opinion.
The news of Sher sisters’ achievement was first shared by social media activist Kapil Dev who happened to be acquaintance of one of the five sisters.
When a user objected to Dev’s tweet revealing names of the sisters and containing Zoha Malik’s picture, he answered that he had done so with the consent of the younger sister.
