Samina Baig at 21 became the first Ismaili woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest as part of her goal to scale the world’s SEVEN SUMMITS. In an exclusive interview with Simerg, when asked about placing the Ismaili flag on top Everest and if she left it there, she said:

“….And when it comes to being the first Pakistani woman and the first Ismaili woman to put the nation’s flag and the Ismaili Imamat red and green flag on top of the world, one cannot adequately express the feeling. It is indeed a BLESSING of a life time! We did bring the flag back, and with all love and respect, sent it to Sarcar Mawlana Hazar Imam.”

  1. One more Black Eye for the Taliban Orthodoxy! It was 60 years ago, when His Highness, Sir Sultan Mohamed Shah, laid the foundation to educate Ismaili Women through out the world. IT IS A SMALL FOOT STEP FOR SISTER SAMINA BAIG, BUT A GIANT FOOT STEPS FOR MUSLIM WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD!
