  1. I think such law should also be applied in private educational institutes. Aga Khan Education Service Chitral male employees should be barred to contact female teachers for instance.

  2. A nice job done by the relevant authorities. In 2009 a woman teacher employed for elementary education of women in Drosh was asked for having a meeting with the supervisors. She refused and upon insisting left the job. Very Well considered matter and applauded.
