KARACHI: Pilot Shumaila Mazhar has turned down rumors that she is the sister of pilot Maryam Masood who was named among those holding a fake license.
The license scandal that recently surfaced affected a large number of pilots as several airlines in Pakistan stepped forward and started to cancel the license of many pilots. Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has grounded 150 pilots over claims they may not hold a valid license.
To this, PIA pilot Shumaila Mazhar, who was photographed alongside Captain Maryam Masood spoke up against rumors wrongly attributing her as the other sister.
I have been continuously subjected to mental trauma, anguish by so called media intellectuals. I request you all to stop spreading lies and hate speech without knowing the truth. Capt Maryam has been my“ Capt” and we are not sisters. My name is not included in any list of pilots pic.twitter.com/013Y6RfP5C
