Social media came to the rescue of a Mumbai-based woman and helped her find her missing mother, who ended up in Pakistan after she went to Dubai with an agent to work as a house help, reported the news agency ANI. According to the report, the resident of Mumbai, Yasmin Sheikh shared that while her mother went to Dubai to work as a cook, she never returned.

Sheikh told ANI that she came to know about her mother after 20 years by means of a Pakistan-based social media account that posted her video. She added that her mother would often go to Qatar for two to four years, but this time around she went with the assistance of an agent, after which she never returned. She voiced that while they did try searching for her, all their efforts were in vain and they could not file a complaint because they lacked evidence. 

Based on the account, Sheikh added that her mother, Hamida Banu who went to Dubai to work as a house help never contacted the family afterwards. The daughter mentioned that when they went to meet the agent to ask about Banu's whereabouts, the agent claimed that the mother did not want to meet or talk to them and assured them that she was doing well. In the video, the mother revealed that the agent had told her to not reveal the truth to anyone. 

The narrative also suggested that Sheikh brought to light that it was only after the video reached them that they came to know about her mother residing in Pakistan. Otherwise, they had no clue if she was in Dubai or any other country. Talking about the video, Banu's sister Shahida mentioned they could only recognize her because she took the correct names of her family and residence.

Shahida added that they tried their best to find her sister and contacted the agent who allegedly fled after a while. This diminished their hope of finding her. Now that they have found her, the sister and daughter feel it is a miracle that they met her after many years. Thus, they requested the government to assist in bringing her back.
