Actress Sophia Mirza in a fix as daughters opt to side with father
July 5, 2022 02:48 PM
The twin daughters of actress and model Sophia Mirza have admitted that their mother instructed them to steal their passports, money from their father, and flee their Dubai home and come to Pakistan.
Fifteen years old twin sisters Zainab Umar and Zunairah Umar have spoken for the first in an interview with a Pakistani TV channel and in a written affidavit presented to the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Since the media-related material is widely available, they claimed that their mother's acts have "ruined" their peace of mind and "adversely harmed our mental and psychological health."
In the affidavit, Zainab Umar wrote: “I and my sister have faced extreme embarrassment and bullying at our schools and we were so distraught that our father has arranged for us to change our schools thrice to protect us from the effects of our mother’s statements.”
Both sisters offered in their affidavits that they were prepared to record their statements through Skype or any other electronic mode in order to ensure that they were making the statements without any coercion.
Sophia Mirza has previously maintained that her daughters were kidnapped from Pakistan by their father and that they are being held against their will in Dubai and that they should be brought back to Pakistan.
