She has a bachelor’s degree in Science from the Science Faculty of Kabul University. She is an anti Karzai Wolesi Jirga member MNA.

It said she is a non Hazara Schia.

She is close with USAID. Mullah Mohammad Hanifi, the head of the Islamic council (shura) of Kandahar, has also been threatened because he has asked people not to join the Talibans. “Since 2002, they have killed 23 mullahs who worked for the shura,” he said. He is part of the inner circle of deputy Shakiba Hashimi, who is known for her courageous position-taking.
