While others celebrated the feat of lifting Bangladesh’s fastest man Imranur Rahman, Hafsa Mazhar was enjoying the view from the other side of the glass of the VIP gallery.
After a while, Hafsa came to the lush green grounds of the Banani Army Stadium with her sleeping daughter Abha-Noor Rehman, huddled inside the baby sitter.
He started recording on his mobile phone the celebration of the winning athletes of the Banglabandhu 46th National Athletics Championship at the Bangladesh Army Stadium.
Hafsa’s roots go back to Gujar Khan village in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. Despite her Pakistani origins, Hafsa now has a strong bond to Bangladesh as her husband Imranur is a Bangladeshi.
Hafsa’s father Mazir Iqbal is a British citizen but her mother Gulshan Begum was born in Pakistan. His parents Mazir Iqbal and Gulshan Begum married in 1992 and then moved to England. Hafsa was born and brought up there.
Hafsa also completed her studies in England. However, Hafsa often visits her paternal ties to Pakistan. Currently, she is working as a nurse in a hospital in England.
