First Hindu girl joins Sindh Police as DSP

First Hindu girl joins Sindh Police as DSP

KARACHI: Pakistan’s first Hindu woman Manisha Ropeta has joined Sindh police as Deputy Superintendent of Police.

Ropeta passed the competitive examination of the Sindh Public Service Commission in April 2021. Before qualifying for the tough competition, she did MA in English from Shah Abdul Latif University Khairpur and a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center.

Talking to media Ropeta said that most girls prefer or are forced by their families to become doctors and it is a do-or-die-like situation for them. But I wanted to break this myth of a women-friendly profession, she added.  

Ropeta has been posted as an under-training officer in one of the Karachi oldest areas – Lyari. “These are early days of my career, and I am being trained to handle issues happening in society,” she said.

With a smiling face, Ropeta said her father founded the family’s education. “He is an all-time inspiration for translating our dreams into reality,” she said. In a society where young girls hardly get education facilities and a chance to study, Hindu girls do not see good opportunities to get their due space.

Happy with encouragement from different people, she said, “Not only my family and relatives but I received very positive responses from different parts of Pakistan.”

“My message is for all girls who strive hard to become something in their lives,” she said. “Irrespective of caste, colour or religion, I am the reflection of every girl in our society who aspire to climb the rungs of the ladder where they deserve to be,” she concluded.
