the world of politics and began campaigning against the Malaysian government on
behalf of her father, a prominent opposition leader, who has been systematically targeted by the government and jailed numerous times. When Anwar Ibrahim was sentenced to five years in jail in
March 2015, Anwar spoke on his behalf during a debate in the Malaysian
Parliament. She is currently an MP for KeADILan.
