  • Mehmuda Khatoon
  • Fleeing Quickly
  • Train Ride
  • Mehmuda Khatoon was born in Darya Ganj, Delhi and was the youngest of 3 sisters and a brother. When her family heard rumors of insurgents coming to set fire to their home, they decided to leave.
  • Crowded Basement
  • One of Khatoon's uncle's sons came to their house to warn them of rioters coming to their neighborhood, so they fled immediately. Khatoon remembers they didn't even turn off the flame on the burning stove when they left.
  • Refugee Camp
  • Khatoon and her family went to the Delhi Railway Station to get to Karachi via Lahore. Her aunt managed to get them some seats on the train headed there.
  • New Home
  • Khatoon and her family stayed in the basement of a mosque for a night which was dark and crowded.
  • They then rode a train that took them to Karachi, where they stayed in a refugee camp. 
  • Two weeks later, they were brought to a newly-built quarter in Karachi where Khatoon would sometimes play hopscotch with kids on her street. She was also taught to read and write at home while her brothers continued to go to school.
