Fareeda Tareen Becomes Balochistan’s Fifth Female Deputy Commissioner

Fareeda Tareen

In Pakistan, the tide of women empowerment continues to surge, with remarkable women making their mark across various fields.

Adding to this narrative of progress, the Balochistan government has recently sanctioned the appointment of yet another trailblazing woman, Fareeda Tareen, to the esteemed position of deputy commissioner (DC).

Fareeda, a proficient Grade 18 officer, previously served diligently as the assistant commissioner (AC) of Dasht tehsil in Balochistan’s Kharan district.

Now, she ascends to the role of deputy commissioner in Sohbatpur district, solidifying her standing as the fifth woman to hold such a position in the province.

In a society traditionally dominated by men, Fareeda’s elevation symbolizes a significant breakthrough, highlighting her capability to navigate the complexities of administrative duties amidst a politically volatile landscape and lingering insurgency.

Her appointment aligns with a broader trend of female ascendancy in administrative roles within Balochistan.

Joining the ranks of high-ranking female government officers like Lasbela DC Humaira Baloch, Naseerabad DC Sadaf Batool Assadi, Hub DC Rohana Gul Kakar, and Awaran DC Ayesha Zehri, Fareeda embodies a wave of change, challenging traditional norms and forging a path for others to follow.

Fareeda’s journey to this pivotal role hasn’t been without its challenges. She weathered four consecutive transfers within a span of just 36 days in 2021, a testament to her resilience and commitment to public service.

Despite the turbulence, she persevered, each transition a testament to her adaptability and dedication to duty.

While some may question the frequency of Fareeda’s transfers, the Balochistan government’s then-spokesperson, Liaquat Shahwani, emphasized that such movements are routine in bureaucratic circles and not indicative of discrimination. He underscored Fareeda’s competence and work ethic, dismissing any insinuation of bias.

Fareeda Tareen’s story is not just one of personal triumph but also a beacon of hope for a more inclusive and equitable future in Balochistan and beyond.

Her journey underscores the transformative power of perseverance, talent, and gender equality in shaping the course of governance and society.
