‘My father sent me abroad to study after my divorce’: Masarrat Misbah
“My father was a man with a vision, he was my ultimate support after my divorce and my pillar of strength until his last days.”
Masarrat Misbah talks fondly of her father, the man with a vision that goes beyond many in this society. Not many can do what he did at that time, supporting a divorced daughter, encouraging her to go study abroad, pursue her dreams and then help establish her beauty salon which then changed all of their lives forever.
“He called all of us 6 daughters and said I want you to study. He was a man with multiple responsibilities but he chose to educate us girls.”
It is heart-warming to see such a beautiful relationship between a father and daughter and we are happy that Masarrat had the support that a handful of women in Pakistan in the same situation as her would have. While parents are worried about, ‘Log kya kahengay’ it is fathers like Masarrat Misbah’s who decide to take charge and change the trajectory of their child’s life completely.
The Saviour of Acid Victims in Pakistan
Instead of spending her life as a divorcee with two kids in tow, she decided to take charge of her life and this led to her changing the loves of millions of women through her foundation ‘Depilex Smile Again Foundation’. The non-profit foundation works towards helping women who are victims of acid attacks. With nowhere to go, these women receive rehabilitation, treatment and then job opportunities with the Depilex Beauty Clinic and other entities to move ahead in life with their honour and dignity intact.
Masarrat Misbah’s efforts in this regard have earned her recognition and praise for her commitment to social causes and women’s rights in Pakistan.
