A kind soul, who has been working day in and day out for the emancipation and uplift of women, and has a promising and compassionate attitude for the masses. At a very young age, she has achieved milestones. She has touched success at every point and stage of her life. Married and a mother of a son, Ms. Kashmala Tariq worked with her heart and sinew for standing out as a shining star and a symbol of pride for the women folk of Pakistan.

This gave her a new insight, which is probably unique to her.

Politics has been her passion, right from the very beginning. She was Secretary General of an Environmental NGO (Sath) from 1992 to 1995; and has served as President of the Peoples Students Federation (PSF) from 1993 to 1995.

An ardent advocate of Musharraf's enlightened moderation theory; she feels a dire need of awareness and education for the masses. Her political success has been scandalized, quite a number of times.

Such events and occurrences have made her the darling of the Urdu-language media. In spite of all odds, Ms. Kashmala has come a long way in her political journey. Such minor hurdles come and go. There are forces that oppose and forces that make you move along; it is how you manage to fair well.
