Zaheera's brother returns at Best Bakery 

By Abdul Hafiz Lakhani

The Milli Gazette Online 

Best BakeryVadodara: "Life is returning to normal at last, please do not put it under the scanner again." A month and a half after Nafitullah Sheikh returned home, to the once charred, now repaired Best Bakery, the elder brother of Zaheera Sheikh has just one thing on his mind: putting the post behind him.

Nafituallah, who returned home with his second wife Heena Vasava and their two children after three months of staying in a rented accommodation in Vadodara, is now staying in the portion that was locked by his first wife Yasmin Bano. 

"It was difficult to keep changing house so frequnetly. Yasmin is not here, the keys were also not here. But I decided to come back" said Nafituallah, who is earning a living by doing daily jobs. 

Incidentally, Yasmin had also been coming back on and off to the Hanuman Tekri Sheikh residence and carrying out renovation work in bits and pieces. The fence and a small wooden gate placed in front of the Best Bakery by the family earlier has been removed and the walls outside and inside-have been white-washed.

"I and my husband are trying to earn our meagre roti and chutney in peace. We are poor people and the media had hounded us for long" said Heena Vasava, Nafitullah’s wife. 

"No one knew who Nafitullah was, and now I have to walk in my own city cautiously. I am earning whatever I can for my family. Peace had always prevailed here before March 2002 and things are the same now for us" said Nafitullah.

A police picket set up near the bakery had been totd by Paginate police inspector not to allow anyone question or disturb the family since it might lead to breach of peace here.

Meanwhile, Nafitullah wants to restart the bakery. My dhandha (business) has not yet started," he says. If bakery starts, I would be back to my usual life. Then some more people from our family might come back," he adds.
