His sister, Sitara Brooj Akbar, at the age of 11, had passed six O’level subjects including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology.
In addition to this honour, Sitara also holds the title of being the youngest Pakistani candidate of the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and successfully attained seven bands out of nine, scoring 7.5 in the testing system.
At the time of her daughter’s feat in 2011, Sitara’s mother had said that her daughter is a great fan of Dr Abdus Salam, Pakistan’s sole Nobel laureate at that time, and aims to become a top researcher in the field of biochemistry.
