When Gaby disappeared from her Scottish home, it was assumed that her Pakistani father had kidnapped her and the spiralling headlines were only momentarily silenced when it emerged that Gaby may have fled of her own accord. To her mother's distress, Gaby declared 'my name is Ghazala' and turned her back on Gaby and seemingly, the West.
