LAHORE/ISLAMABAD: Just watch how bravely a young female police officer of Punjab Police in Lahore, Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi, saved the life of a young girl who was surrounded by a charged mob for wearing a dress carrying Arabic words.

The mob gathered around the girl in Lahore, believing that she has committed blasphemy by wearing the dress. In the clip below, you can watch the police officer addressing the charged crowd and then shifting the girl to the police vehicle.

Before rescuing from the charged crowd, she addressed to them saying “You should trust us, we will handle this case on merit. In the past, we managed such cases with honesty,” she said.

Then she brought out the lady while covering her in black-burqa and holding her under her right arm with the aim to escort her to the police vehicle safely. It was really a test of bravery for the young police officer Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi, who put at stake her life to rescue the girl.

Earlier, Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the newly-elected Chief Minister of Punjab expressed admiration for the remarkable bravery, wisdom, and dedication exhibited by a senior police officer in Lahore recently.

In a heartfelt tribute to Gulberg Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi on the social media platform X, Punjab CM praised the officer’s decisive actions that prevented a potential disaster and earned recognition from the highest levels of government.

“Thank you, Shehrbano! We are all proud of you,” she tweeted.

The tribute follows a recent incident in Lahore’s Ichhra bazaar where a group of religious extremists harassed a woman over her attire.

Maryam commended the ASP for maintaining her commitment to both the law and humanity despite facing immense pressure, a large crowd, and challenging circumstances.

As the nominee for CM, Maryam emphasized the importance of every individual in the police force fulfilling their role in protecting people’s lives and property.

Maryam Nawaz Sharif conveyed appreciation on behalf of the entire community, highlighting Shehrbano’s swift and decisive intervention that saved lives and prevented a potential disaster. This intervention showcased the highest standards of professionalism and bravery within the police force.

Additionally, the Punjab Police chief announced that the department has recommended ASP Shehrbano Naqvi for the Quaid-e-Azam Police Medal, the highest gallantry award for law enforcement in Pakistan, for risking her life to “rescue a woman from a violent crowd.”

“ASP Syeda Shehrbano Naqvi, the brave SDPO of Gulberg Lahore, risked her life to rescue a woman from a violent crowd. For this heroic act, the Punjab Police has recommended her for the prestigious Quaid-e-Azam Police Medal (QPM), the highest gallantry award for law enforcement in Pakistan,” tweeted the police department’s official X account, quoting IGP Dr. Usman Anwar.
