A newly launched private television channel has recently employed a Sikh woman as a news reporter for the first time ever in the history of the country.
Manmeet Kaur who lives in the city of Peshawar has joined the Hum News on Saturday. She has done her master’s in social sciences from the University of Peshawar. She has got four siblings.
She would soon be seen reporting on the matters of human rights, local communities, minorities and non-governmental organizations.
While conversing with the reporters in Lahore, the twenty-four-year-old said that although media is not her field, still she accepted the job for proving herself.
She added that in our country—Pakistan, most of the Sikh girls give preference to sit at their homes after completing their formal education. She said this while emphasizing upon the need for community to step into the practical field.

Kaur added that she wants to serve her nation as a journalist and want to show the whole world that the Sikh women are also very talented.
Manmeet Kaur highlighted on the treatment of minority communities in Pakistan. She said that talented people no matter which community or creed or caste or religion they belong to are always given honour and treated with respect.
This is a good sign to see that the people belonging to minority communities are being given equal opportunities and platforms for proving their talents in Pakistan. All human beings are same no matter which community they belong to thus they all deserve to be treated equally with respect and honour and deserves to be provided with the same opportunities and chances.
