Hyderabad woman stranded in Somalia, kin seek Sushma’s help

Hyderabad: A woman from Hyderabad, who has been living in Somalia since 2013, is allegedly being mistreated and tortured by her in-laws.

Mohammad Wahiuddin, brother of Mohammedi Begum, alleged that his sister’s in-laws not even provided adequate food to her.

“My sister Mohammedi Begum got married to Somalian national Sayeed Hassan Ibrahim in the year 2003 in Hyderabad and the duo used to stay with us in our residence in Hyderabad for around ten years. They were blessed with three sons and two daughters. Later, in 2013, my sister’s husband said that his parents in Somalia want to see their children. So, my sister along with her five children went to Somalia on 1 April 2013. However, Sayeed stayed in Hyderabad for one long year and then he shifted to America. Since then my sister and her kids have been stuck in Somalia and facing lots of problems. She is being tortured by her in-laws, they are not even providing adequate food to eat,” woman’s brother told ANI.

Wahiuddin also urged External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Embassy of India in Somalia to intervene in the matter and rescue his sister and her children.

“My only appeal to both Sushma Ji and the Indian Embassy in Somalia is, they should rescue my sister and her kids and bring them back home to India as soon as possible without any further delay,” he added.
