Faryal Makhdoon and her husband Amir Khan stepped in to help the family of Zohra Shah, the eight-year-old girl who was beaten to death by her employers.
Faryal took to Instagram and wrote in her Instagram story that “Amir and I have personally contacted Zohra’s father and hoping to speak to him shortly. Thank you to everyone… especially the lawyers, barristers and human rights activists who are supporting us.”
When fans grilled her on why Zohra was sent to work by her family, she brought forth the family’s side of the story. “Loads of messages asking why they sent their 8-year-old daughter to work.. they didn’t,” Faryal explained in a second post.
“The father has told us he has 6 kids… the father sent the daughter (Zohra Shah) to Islamabad with her Khala (aunty) to study there. The khala then put Zohra Shah to work… where she was beaten to death.”
The couple has started a child protection fund in honor of Zohra that aims to protect children in Pakistan from any sort of abuse.
