The Pakistani husband of a woman from Hyderabad is making life miserable for Mohammedi Begum in Lahore and is refusing to allow her to travel back to India.
With the intervention of union external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj, Pakistan authorities had granted visa to the 45-year-old woman to travel to India. The Indian government had also provided her a fresh Indian passport.
The visa was issued on November 9 and lapses by December 16. With just seven days for the visa to expire, Mohammedi Begum's parents are worried.
"Her husband is torturing her and is refusing to send her back to India. She is being subjected to insults," Hajra Begum said in a YouTube message to Sushma Swaraj.
Mohammedi Begum had got married to Mohammad Younis in 1996. The family was given to understand that he was from Oman. The nikah was performed over the phone and Mohammedi Begum travelled to Oman. Later, Younis disclosed to her that he was from Pakistan and shifted her from Oman to Pakistan.
