SRINAGAR, JULY 11- The Speaker, Jammu and Legislative Assembly Mr. Mubrak Gul Friday paid rich tributes to Madri-e-Meherban Begum Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah on her 14th Death Anniversary and said that her endeavour for women empowerment and skill development at the time when its significance was in oblivion, speaks loud and clear of her vision for holistic welfare of the society.
He said Madri-e-Meherban has universalized education and upgradation of skills in women. He also referred to the work done by her for the development of children and downtrodden sections of the society.
Speaking at a function at Naseembagh after offering fateh and laying floral wreath at the grave of Begum Sher-i-Kashmir at Hazratbal, the Speaker said that besides the laudable political role, Madri-e-Meherban is known for her stupendous efforts to empower women and help holistic development of children particularly of weaker sections.
Mr. Gul said that Madari-e-Meherban pushed forward Sher-i-Kashmir’s vision of Naya Kashmir by working for universalization of education especially among the girls and weaker sections. He said that her vision for women education and empowerment is being translated in to reality.
The Speaker said that she was a philanthropist who worked tirelessly for the upliftment of the weaker and down trodden sections of the society without giving preferential treatment to any caste or community. He said that the social work rendered by her would be remembered for long and the onus lies on the present generation to pass the significance of her contribution to the future generations of the State.
