Singer and actor Hadiqa Kiani took to her Instagram handle and posted a long note in which she appreciated the government’s new policy related to allow children of single mothers eligible to acquire CNIC without father’s information.

In a ruling, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has ordered the National Database Registration Authority (NADRA) to issue Computerised National Identity Card (CNIC) to a woman who didn’t know about her father’s whereabouts, reported Samaa.

The Zindagi Gulzar Hai singer stated: “Only Allah knows the hardships a single mother faces in our country. Today I have been sent so many clips from my conversation with Sameena Peerzada regarding only the surface of those hard realities but today our country has taken one step forward. I am so grateful to the courageous men and women who fought to make this change. Let’s continue on the right path, let’s make a stronger and safer Pakistan.”  


Hadiqa adopted her son Naad-E-Ali in 2005 from Edhi Foundation, and has raised her child as a single mother.
