Queer figure Nur Sajat recently confirmed that she has officially migrated to Australia, claiming that she “did not feel safe” in her home country. The recent news came amid the ongoing Shariah court case against her for “dressing as a woman” at a religious event three years ago.
During an Instagram Live session held earlier on Tuesday (19th October), the 36-year-old celebrity entrepreneur shared with her followers that she’s currently undergoing quarantine at a hotel in Aussie. At the same time, Sajat also revealed that she has been granted permanent residence status in the country!
According to Sajat, prior to revealing the news about her migration, she had been granted permission from the Australian embassy. She also added that she felt overwhelmed as they provided her with a lot of support in various aspects.
“I’m now in Australia. I don’t want to look back. I’m surrounded by people who care about me and I think I’ll be happier here. The Australian embassy supported me a lot. They’re even allowing me to attend extra classes to improve my English language and hone my business skills. They also provided me a house to live in,” the trans celeb said.
Furthermore, the 36-year-old took to her Instagram Story to share some photos of her new residence in the foreign country. It’s understood that Sajat’s new house is located in Canterbury, New South Wales. Check out her posts below:
In related news, Sajat’s younger sister, Mustika, took to her Instagram to express her displeasure over all the controversial events that took place over the past year. According to the influencer, ever since Sajat became a viral topic online, people have been targeting her and her family, despite the fact that they have nothing to do with her.
She wrote, “She (Sajat) left a negative reputation, and without being given a choice, I have to be responsible for all this? Not only that, she never apologised to me. In fact, she insulted me after I explained the real situation to the media. I didn’t even talk bad about her at the time.”
Mustika added, “I’m a mother. I have children. The negative effects will eventually take a toll on them someday. What would happen if they attend school, and people begin poking fun at their ‘uncle’? May God continue to strengthen me in facing such trials and tribulations.”
Last month, it was reported that Sajat was detained in Bangkok, Thailand by the country’s immigration authorities, after she went into hiding from the public and the authorities. Get the full scope here.
