In ongoing Pakistan Super League, Islamabad United’s brand ambassador, Momina Mustehsan, seems to be all in favour of women empowerment. The Coke Studio singer is of the opinion that there should be a separate PSL held for female cricketers.
The Islamabad United ambassador was speaking to Geo.TV, where she was asked if there should be a PSL for women cricketers to go along with the theme of women empowerment.
Momina said that it’s an important theme that should be highlighted. Giving an example of her team’s fellow female ambassadors, who happen to be female cricketers too, the singer said that the sport should be promoted at the same level for both genders.
Girls should also excel in this field, she said.
When asked that if other teams should also take a leaf out of Islamabad United’s book as far as the addition of female cricket ambassadors goes, Momina said that not only franchises, the entire nation should be promoting this initiative.
“We need to set a precedent so we get more Bismas and Javerias,” she said while referring to fellow team ambassadors and female cricketers.
Equality should be for everyone and everywhere, said the Coke Studio singer.
When the subject turned to the national anthem of Islamabad United ‘Cricket Joray Pakistan’ Mustehsan was asked about the concept behind the song.
The song is about bringing the nation together as a lot of Pakistanis are here to watch the sport, no matter what team they support, cricket unifies them in the end, she commented.
“Cricket always does bring us together,” she added.
At the end of the interview, when asked to chant a few lines from the song she sang for her team, Momina politely declined.
