Dr. Saveera Parkash is the first Hindu candidate running for office on the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) ticket from the Buner (PK-25) district. She said that if she won, she would work to improve relations between Pakistan and India and fight for women’s rights in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The highly educated candidate is from the minority Hindu group, which is a first for a relatively conservative KP. With her candidacy, the party has made history in the province.
The 25-year-old told Geo News that she has been called “daughter of Buner” and that the “Muslim brothers” have promised her not only their votes but also their full support. Dr. Saveera thinks that people are the most important religion in the world.
Dr. Saveera was born in the village of Dagar in 1998. She went to elementary and high school in her home district, but she got her FSC in pre-medical studies in Lahore. The young doctor finished her medical schooling in Abbottabad and got a job working from home.
She was getting ready for the Central Superior Services (CSS) in Pakistan after getting the PPP’s nomination to run in the next election. The reason Dr. Saveera ran for office with the PPP was because her family has supported the party for 37 years.
As a lawmaker, she would focus on promoting education and dealing with problems like health and pollution after she won the race. She is also worried that there aren’t enough health facilities in her area and that people don’t know enough about health care.
She also believes that women don’t have as many rights or chances to move up in society. Fixing all of these issues is very important to her.
