My parents had no idea of any of these negotiations though they knew discussions were under way to move me overseas.
Naturally they assumed that wherever I was sent, they would accompany me.
My mother and brothers had no passports or documentation. On Sunday afternoon my father was informed by the colonel that I would be leaving the next morning for the UK and only he was to accompany me, not my mother or my brothers.
He was told there was a problem arranging their passports and that for security reasons he should not even tell the rest of my family he was going.
My father shares everything with my mother and there was no way he would keep such a thing secret.
He told her the news with a heavy heart.
My mother was sitting with uncle Faiz Mohammad, who was furious and worried about her and my brothers' security.
'If she's on her own with two boys in Mingora, anything could happen to them!'
My father called the colonel.
'I have informed my family and they are very unhappy.
I cannot leave them.'
This caused a big problem because I was a minor so couldn't be sent alone and many people got involved to try and convince my father to come with me, including Colonel Junaid, Dr Javid and Dr Fiona.
My father does not respond well to being pushed and remained firm even though it was clear that by now he was creating havoc.
He explained to Dr Javid, 'My daughter is now in safe hands and going to a safe country.
I can't leave my wife and sons alone here. They are at risk.
What has happened to my daughter has happened and now she is in God's hands.
I am a father – my sons are as important to me as my daughter.'
