Dua Zahra, the girl at the centre of the alleged abduction case, had told court that she was not abducted and left her home in Karachi to marry the man of her choice. She now blamed her parents for her ordeal.
A YouTuber Zunaira Maham sat down Dua Zahra who told her side of the story. After allegations by Dua’s parents that her husband belonged to a gang, Zunaira Maham has conducted a live session with Dua Zahra and her husband Zaheer.
Talking about people’s curses, Dua said, “Don’t curse anyone as Allah is watching”. Replying to why she left her home, Dua said, “My parents were forcing me for a marriage with cousin and that’s why I had to take that step of leaving home.”
In the live session, Zunaira Maham urged Dua Zehra to respond to all the people and YouTubers who have built this narrative that Zaheer belongs to a gang. Dua Zehra (who could be seen fully dolled up in a formal attire), said, “I want to say to all the YouTubers and people that stop lying about me, I don’t need your sympathies, I know how much you people care about me, and please do respect my husband, stop saying that he belongs to a gang.”
Further Dua said, “On Valentine’s Day, my phone was switched off by my parents and they had beaten me up. They knew everything about Zaheer, they knew whole story, and I had written a letter while leaving home as they were not convinced about Zaheer.”
In live session, Dua said to her parents, “Please accept my husband Zaheer and give him the same respect that you give to me and you know that I married him by my will.”
Talking about giving interviews in pressure she said, “I’m not being blackmailed, no one beats me before interview, I give my statements independently, I don’t know why people say that I am kidnapped, even whatever I say, they think negative about me.”
Netizens criticized Dua Zehra for being a very much discourteous and damaged kid. They said that she has no guilt over what she has done and has a blunt and negative tone regarding everyone who thinks about her benefits. People prayed for her that may Allah guide her right path. Many people were annoyed with Dua Zehra and expressed about it.
Dua Zehra’s case has become “Hot Topic” of the town ever since it made headlines. The case was also pursued in High Court in which Dua Zehra was given the right of her life and her decision of marrying by choice was accepted, the Court’s decision came after the statements of Dua which said that she doesn’t want to go with her parents.
