(please share it as much as possible so that embassies of Ireland and Britain may notice the state of one of their former national).
Shirley Parr (Halima Bai)is daughter of an Irish man, her mother was an English, she was born on 7th July 1939 ( around 75 years old now) in Calcutta west Bengal, India.
Her mother died during her birth and after some time her father brought her to Chittagong, East Bengal, India. There he was forced to get her admitted in a Covenant school as he was unable to bring her up further. After 2 months of her admission in covenant school, her father died due to heart attack .
She left covenant school after having her education of Cambridge level, in the then East Pakistan, she embraced Islam and started living on teaching. After the debacle of East Pakistan, she moved to western wing that is present day Pakistan.
She got a room through an estate agent namely Haji saheb on rent in a Memon community, who came himself from Bombay and settled in Karachi, and she stayed with the community for 25 years.
Since she was teaching tuitions and baby sittings she remained deprived of any old age benefits and senior citizen concessions since law has yet not been finalized in Pakistan.
She also taught Royal family of Iran, taught in Abu Dhabi and Dhabi. She remained dependent on Memon community almost for a decade, and after the demise of Haji saheb, she was looked after by one of his nephew, who due to deteriorating situation left Karachi and got her admitted in “Bint e Fatima old age home” located on 26th Street DHA Karachi.
Interviewer is khalid son of Haji saheb who visits her monthly with house expenses which his cousin sends to him. She is an unfortunate woman, however I request British and Irish consulates in Karachi to look after her for her proper diets and medicines.
At least it is minimum right of a British Irish born person. She should not be left on the mercy of second and third generations of benefactors.
She said she embraced Islam due to two great qualities that is BOW TO ALLAH and HIJAB TO WOMAN. Surprisingly the second quality of Islam has become anathema to Christian West. She is a Bachelorette.
