Sushma Swaraj comes to rescue of Indian woman who was being ill-treated in Pakistan

Posted Date :   21 March 2017 04:28:36 PM  

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj once again turned a saviour for an Indian woman married in Pakistan after her father's YouTube SOS that his daughter was being mistreated by her in-laws in Pakistan. Swaraj on Monday said that the Indian High Commission had met the woman in Pakistan and was ensuring her safety and return to India.
 
The external affairs minister posted on Twitter that she received a YouTube message from Mohammad Akbar about his daughter Mohammadia Begum who was being ill-treated by her in-laws.
 
She tweeted, "Our mission sent a Note Verbale requesting the safety, security and well-being of Mohammadia Begum." "Our High Commission officials met Mohammadia Begum and she expressed her desire to return to India."
 
As the Hyderabad woman's passport had expired last year, Swaraj asked the Indian High Commission to renew her Indian passport and facilitate her return to India.
 
Meanwhile, Mohammedi Begum spoke to her mother Hajara Begum over phone and informed that her husband Muhammad Younis beat her up and locked her in a room after Indian High Commission officials met her.
 
The 44-year-old broke down while narrating the ill-treatment at the hands of her husband and in-laws. The mother advised her to have patience and wait for the help from the High Commission.
 
Younis has even threatened that he will not allow her go back to India alive. He reportedly married another woman, a Pakistani.
Hajara Begum said her daughter had turned very weak due to physical and mental torture and needs immediate medical help.
 
Mohammedi Begum and Younis have five children -- three sons and two daughters. The youngest son is nine-year-old and he was born in Pakistan while the other children were born in Muscat, Oman.
"If the children come with her that will be good but my appeal is that she should be brought home immediately," said Hajara Begum.
 
Mohammedi Begum's father Mohammed Akbar, a cycle mechanic, had earlier sent an e-mail to Sushma Swaraj in January seeking her help in bringing back his daughter.
 
It was on March 16 that Sushma had sought a report from India High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale.
 
He alleged that Muhammad Younis, who concealed his actual nationality and claimed to be from Oman, married her in 1996.
The 'nikah' was performed over telephone through some agent and Begum joined Younis, a mechanic, in Muscat. After 12 years of marriage, Begum got a shock when Younis, who had lost his job, disclosed that he was a Pakistani.
 
Mohammedi Begum had visited Hyderabad in 2012. Her father said this was her only visit to India in 21 years.
