Pakistani woman’s plight catches attention of UAE embassy


DUBAI: A Pakistani woman’s plight recently caught the attention of UAE embassy when a man, who goes by the Twitter handle @jalalsherazi, decided to reach out to the UAE diplomatic mission via a tweet to highlight the struggles that the woman was facing.

“She is Yasmeen. She has three daughters and a son studying in class two, and her husband has died,” wrote @jalalsherazi.

“As she had no option, she herself is struggling to feed her kids, though this struggle is not easy. She has a small amount from which she gets everyday fruits, which she sells [to] make some profit,” he added.


On seeing the tweet, the UAE Ambassador to Pakistan, Hamad Obaid Ebrahim Salem Al Zaabi, decided to visit Yasmeen at her fruit stall.

The UAE Embassy in a tweet, while speaking about the ambassador’s visit, said: “@ALZAABI82, Reacts to a tweet posted by @jalalsherazi, visits and supports the Pakistani woman Yasmin, who struggles and supports four school going children as her husband died, the lady sells fruits and struggles to feed her family.”

“A great example of Pakistani women,” the tweet concluded.
