The courses, being offered in Memon Industrial & Technical Institute (MITI) have been accused of being sexist in nature and promoting ‘stereotypical’ and discriminatory limitations for women.

Social media users accused the program of being sexist in its nature as soon as the list of courses surfaced on social media.

While the course aims to train underprivileged Pakistani youth, the fact that only 8 courses are being offered for women as compared to 20 being offered for men is being seen as sexist and stereotypical.
