Ms. Fatima Suraiyya Hameedi Khatoon was born in 1930, near “Panj Bibi Mountain”, in Karnatak, Hyderabad Deccan, British India. She migrated to Pakistan soon after independence, along with her family.
Affectionately known as “Bajiya” (Elder Sister) all over the world, she is an amazing lady. Her total education took place inside her home, and she was tutored by her grand maternal uncle Nawab Nisar Ahmed Khan, Bahadur Yar Jang. This title was given to him by the Emir of Deccan, an independent state up to 1948. Later it was forcibly taken over by Indian armed personnel, dethroning its Emirs.
Bajiya and her brothers and sisters were 10 in numbers. For more details about them, watch the program and listen to Bajiya.
