In a distressing turn of events, a Hyderabad woman, Kaneez Fatima, has reached out to the Ministry of External Affairs, seeking immediate assistance for her daughter, Hafsa Tanveer, who is reportedly stranded in Muscat under dire circumstances.

Hafsa Tanveer traveled to Muscat on January 30, 2023, on a visitor visa and was employed as a housemaid by a local firm. After enduring six months of alleged torture and deprivation of proper food and accommodation, she expressed her desire to return to India.

According to the details shared by Fatima in her appeal, Tanveer was handed over to an agent by her employer when she decided to leave. Fleeing from the agent’s office, she sought refuge at the Indian Embassy in Muscat. For the past two months, she has been living on the footpath outside the embassy, relying on food provided by a nearby mosque and using their facilities.

The Majlis Bachao Tahreek (MBT) spokesperson, Amjed Ullah Khan, brought attention to this distressing situation, urging Foreign Minister Dr. S Jaishankar to intervene promptly.

This heartbreaking incident sheds light on the vulnerabilities faced by individuals working abroad, especially in precarious conditions. The urgent appeal seeks the Ministry of External Affairs’ intervention to rescue Hafsa Tanveer and ensure her safe return to India.
