At a small shop in Karachi, two young girls are bent over a workstation, repairing wires and battery chargers. Despite all odds, Naseeb Jamal, an electrician for 20 years, has taught six of his eight daughters his craft to help them become self-reliant in the future.
“When I had four daughters, it came to my mind: Why shouldn’t I give them an education?” Jamal, who moved to Karachi from Tor Ghar area in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, told Arab News.
“I couldn’t give them that chance due to a shortage of financial resources, but I thought at least I could teach them skills.” While two of Jamal’s younger daughters are still learning, four are already adept electricians and their father’s pride. “My daughters are making a name for themselves in society and for women in Pakistan,” he said.
Taking to Instagram, actor Farhan Saeed appreciated the man and wrote: “Despite all odds, Naseeb Jamal, an electrician for 20 years, has taught six out of his eight daughters his craft to help them become self-reliant in the future.”
He further added, “Kudos to an empowered father for undoing stereotypes and leading the way.”
