The much anticipated Central Superior Services (CSS 2019) Exams just announced the results. These are the toughest of the tough exams that all potential government servants have to take. Amongst the candidates there was daughter of a Pakistani Christian driver, Rabil Kennedy; breaking all the socio-economic barriers.
The Legal Wing of FBR wrote a letter to its employee, John Kennedy, congratulating him on his daughter’s success. “Legal Team, FBR congratulates you and your daughter Ms. Rabil Kennedy on her selection in Foreign Service of Pakistan through CSS Examination. We wish her all the success in her career in Civil Service,” the letter read.

Recently, the success story of Sher Sisters was also celebrated. Zoha Malik Sher – whose four elder sisters have also passed CSS and are currently serving in different groups – had been allocated to Office Management Group (OMG). Zoha had cleared CSS written exam in 2019.
The tale of a driver’s daughter clearing the very tough CSS exams has given us hope that merit does prevail in this country.John Kennedy is a driver for Inland Revenues, Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). After clearing her CSS, Rabil Kennedy is set to join the Foreign Services of Pakistan. The FBR was kind enough to congratulate their employee on the success of his daughter.
Although we have lost hope of having competent people placed in positions that matter, but its great to see that our system somehow still manages to do something right.
Thoughtful indeed, but even more laudable is the achievement of Ms Rabil & her family for this incredible achievement! Wish her a stellar career & congratulations to the entire Kennedy family.
Also a proof that CSS is a merit-based selection process! https://t.co/oNlT7hA7vN
