Who is the first Pakistani women Chess Player/s Participated in any chess International Competition?


Pakistan chess squad return from 38th Chess Olympiad Dresden Germany with a Grace full performance, results, positions and prizes with their women chess team.


Now Pakistan's sports history has the first five (5) women’s name in chess history those represented Pakistan first time in any International Chess event in 2008 since 1947, and their names are:

1-     Arsalana Tanveer

2-     Sabika Mishraz Siddique

3-     Sharjilla Kiran

4-     Nida Mishraz Siddique

5-     Zenobia Wasif

One issue is really notable that all these girls / women bear themselves all the expenses of participating and representing Pakistan in 38th Dresden Germany Chess Olympiad 2008, a very minimal help was provided by Karachi City Government but yet waiting for that small help that was promised by the Chess Federation of Pakistan

Our sports Ministry spends million of rupees on various sports though they are not giving any satisfactory result, but the Game of chess is being ignored since last 6 decades in Pakistan. At last ministry considered & supported the game of Chess and we thank the Minister of sports from MQM Dr. Mohammad Ali shah for providing financial assistance to the Women team.

 Though we have several famous names in Pakistan chess like Sheikh Muhammad Akram (Lahore), Zaheer-ud-Din-FArooqi (Karachi), FIDE Master Altaf Ahmad  Chaudhary (Lahore)  Shehzad Mirza (Karachi), Mahmood Khan (Karachi), Master Riaz Ahmed (late), Mahmood Ahmed Lodhi (Gujaranwala)Haseeb Ahmad, Amir  Karim, Muhammad Waqar, Khalil Ur Rehman Butt  

Muhammad Waqar recently won the top position in his group in Chess Olympiad 2008.

But the Game of Chess is being ignored and treated like a local say (step son). 

Now we hope that our current President of the Chess Federation of Pakistan Mr. Altaf Ahmad Chaudhary will seriously bring some improvement and support to players and chess in Pakistan as he himself is a famous chess player, not an ordinary player but a FIDE Master title holder in Pakistan.
