Indian Consulate in Dubai reaches out to woman after her tweet seeking help on social media from domestic violence goes viral

While other details are not clear from her video, in another tweet, she says she does not want to stay in the UAE with her husband and wants to come back to her home country India.

The Indian Consulate in Dubai has reached out to Indian woman Jasmine Sultana, who had sought help on social media and had accused her husband of domestic violence.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Sultana had requested authorities to help her get out of the UAE. She had accused her husband, Mohammed Khizar Ullah of domestic violence.


In an unclear video, the woman who identified herself as Jasmine Sultana in the tweet could be seen with swollen eyes and bleeding. She could be heard pleading for help from her parents and one Lubna and one Debu, presumably her relatives. She can be seen crying towards the end of the video.

While other details are not clear from her video, in another tweet, she said she does not want to stay in the UAE with her husband and wants to come back to her home country India.


Jasmine Sultana says that she is from Bangalore, India and currently in Sharjah, UAE. She says she has one 5-year-old child and one 17-month-old child. Various people have tagged authorities in Dubai and in India on Twitter asking them to help her.

Following her appeal for help, the Ministry of External Affairs swung into action and reached out to her.


Indian Consulate in Dubai said that they got in touch with Jasmine and will provide whatever help possible to her. Her husband, whom she had accused of domestic violence, has also been called to the Consulate. Local authorities are already questioning him on the allegations levelled by his wife.
