#GirlDads are the luckiest men in the world: Ali Khan Tareen
As the world remembers the achievements and mentorship of NBA legend Kobe Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash Sunday, it also remembers what a great father he was as well.
The hashtag #GirlDad started trending which spoke of the bond between a father and his daughter; how important it is to be close and also how unique the relationship is.
Politician Ali Khan Tareen also talked about being a Girl Dad on BBC's Insaf Abbas on Outside Source World Service Radio.
Tareen shared, "In Pakistan, especially in the villages, a very common blessing is: 'May God give you seven sons'. But when my wife and I were expecting, I prayed every single day to have a daughter."
"Some older family members would tell me I should pray for a son because I love sports, I can teach my son to play cricket and I can take him to games. I would say, 'Why wouldn't I teach my daughters cricket? Why wouldn't I take them to games?' Society had placed limits on what fathers and daughters should do, and I wasn't going to have any of it."
It was wonderful to speak with @insaf_abbas at the @BBC about being a #GirlDad in Pakistan.— Ali Khan Tareen (@aliktareen) January 31, 2020
