Syeda Marzia Al-Zahra, who was appointed as Pakistan’s first-ever woman station manager in Lahore was removed from her position by Pakistan Railways a few hours after her appointment.
As per reports, a union of station masters allegedly severely opposed her appointment and threatened to protest against the admin if the notification was not cancelled.
Speaking to Independent Urdu, Union Central Chairman Muhammad Irfan said it was against the law and the civil rights of station masters.
However, Zahra said that she would continue supervising the office of station manager being ATO-1 of the PR’s Lahore division under the law.
“Though I cannot look after the post now under the new notification, I being an ATO-1, can exercise my authority to supervise this post. And I will do this. Office of Lahore Cantt station master also comes under my supervision,” she explained.
