‘Sharmila Farooqi interlocked with Hasham Riaz’

KARACHI: Finally, an eye-candy within the realm of politics has fallen head over heels for someone.

The media advisor to Sindh’s Cheif Minister, Sharmila Farooqi is now interlocked with Hasham Riaz Sheikh.

Son of former Director General Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) Ahmed Riaz Sheikh, Hasham was formerly an investment banker on wall street and now serves as an advisor to President Zardari.

Sharmila’s name is not new in the politicians of Sindh. She hails from the family of N.M Uqail, a renowned name in the world of chartered accountancy in Pakistan, who is also the former Finance Minister of Pakistan and chairman of Pakistan Industrial Credit and Investment Corporation (PICIC).

The two met for the first time at a cabinet meeting in October 2010. Two months later, Sharmila was given a Human Rights Award by the president for which she had to fly out to Islamabad.

A ceremony of engagement was held in Karachi where family and friends of the couple extended their best wishes to the couple.

The couple is a die-heart fan of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan so he too glistered the event with his performance.

We wish all the blessings to come to this couple.
