  1. You could have included the name of ‘Dr. Mira Phailbus’ in this article. She is recognized internationally for her immense contribution to the education sector in Pakistan. For over forty years, she has served first as faculty member and then as a principal of Kinnaird College for Women, Lahore. She has also served as the Minister for Education and Minority Affairs, Punjab government.

    • Thank you Beenish for sending us this valuable info. We will update our story for sure. If you know more such Pakistanis, you can help us expand the list.

  2. Durdana Butt is not a non muslim. She is a muslim so please rectify this mistake. I can vouch for it as she is my father’s 2nd cousin.
