How Nowhera Shaik Faked Awards and Recognitions
For Nowhera Shaik, the quack head of the controversial Heera Group of companies and President of the All India Mahila Empowerment Party (MEP) who was arrested last week on charges of cheating investors, faking photographs and awards is not an anomaly but a standard business practice.
‘Indian Super 100’, is a book that profiles the leading 100 entrepreneurs and professionals from India in the Middle East and Africa. The book does include a profile of Nowhera Shaik, but the images promoted by Heera Group are completely distinguished and evidently photoshopped.
Nowhera claims of receiving an award of the ‘Best New Comer Brand’ for Heera Foodex at the Gulf Food Exhibition held at the Dubai World Trade Centre in February 2018. The company Heera Group also released photographs of her receiving awards from the hands-on Sushma Swaraj and her company also claims to have organised the event.
However, the fact is that neither Heera Foodex organised the event, nor the company sponsor it. There is not even any information of the company being awarded on the website, except in the snippet about the company, which going by the description, indicates that it was submitted by Heera Foodex itself.
In 2018, the company again made a false claim and shared a post on its now-defunct Facebook page claiming that Nowhera Shaik had received the ‘Top Business Woman Award’ from Sheikha Hend Faisal Al Qassimi, the Princess of Dubai. But when one Twitter user, checked the same with the princess on the social media site, she replied saying she hasn’t awarded anyone with any business awards.
