Pakistanis are trying to hijack the innocent youth with a new cartoon series.

The Burkha Avengers

The Urdu language show is the brainchild of one of Pakistan's biggest pop stars, Aaron Haroon Rashid.

Pakistani heroine Burka Avenger is a mild-mannered teacher with secret martial arts skills.

She uses a flowing black burka to hide her identity as she fights local thugs seeking to shut down the girls' school where she works.

Action in the Burka Avenger cartoon series, which is due to start running on Geo TV in early August, is much more lighthearted.

The bungling bad guys evoke more laughter than fear and are no match for the Burka Avenger, undoubtedly the first South Asian ninja who wields books and pens as weapons.

Children who saw an early screening of the first episode at an orphanage on the outskirts of Islamabad laughed and cheered as the Burka Avenger vanquished her enemies.

Ten-year-old Samia Naeem said she liked the crusading heroine "because she saved kids' lives, she motivated them for education and school".

BUT THATS NOT ALL

"It's not a sign of oppression. She is using the burka to hide her identity like other superheroes," said Rashid.

The Burka Avenger's true identity is Jiya, whose adopted father, Kabbadi Jan, taught her the karate moves she uses to defeat her enemies.

When not dressed as her alter ego, Jiya does not wear a burka, or even a less conservative headscarf over her hair.

What a whole load of nonsense!
