Expressing gratitude, Farooqi told ANI: "It was my wish to celebrate this Eid with my family in Hyderabad. I am very happy that I celebrated it with my family here."
She further said, "Since my marriage in 2011, I have been staying here with my husband. We are blessed with two children. Last year in December, my father had a stroke and I, along with my two kids, went to Pakistan to pay him a visit."
"Consequently, we had to stay at Lahore airport for five days. When I explained the situation to my husband and mother-in-law, they sought the External Affairs Ministry's intervention," she said.
"We got stranded in Pakistan as my visa got expired on March 3 and my children's visa a few days later," she added.
On May 30, she united with her family in Hyderabad.
