"We are devastated and will never get over this."
The mother of a newlywed woman allegedly murdered by her husband on their honeymoon has paid tribute to her “perfect in every way” daughter.
Fawziyah Javed, from Pudsey, Leeds, had celebrated her wedding reception with relatives and friends just days before her death.
She had been on her honeymoon in Edinburgh when she fell to her death at Arthur’s Seat in a “suspicious” incident in September 2021.
Her death resulted in her husband, Kashif Anwar, being charged with murder.
Fawziyah’s death has left her parents devastated.
They found out that their daughter was pregnant with a boy.
Her mother, Yasmin Javed, has set up a GoFundMe page in her memory, reflecting the charity work carried out by Fawziyah.
Mrs Javed described her daughter as a “very caring and compassionate girl” who was always helping people from an early age.
She said: “From a very early age she was very caring and compassionate. She wore her heart on her sleeve. She was always there to help people.
“I have been crying for days non-stop. My tears have dried up. She was my only child and was pregnant with our first grandchild.
“She was perfect in every way and never gave us any issues even as a teenager. Everybody loved her.
“We are devastated and will never get over this. We are traumatised for life.
“She was a daddy’s girl, she was young, bright and had everything to live for.”
Mrs Javed went on to say that the family wanted to honour her memory by raising money for several charities and good causes.
The family has already made donations to St George’s Crypt in Leeds, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital and Social Bite, a homeless charity in Scotland.
Further donations will be made with money donated to the GoFundMe page. Over £3,000 has been raised so far in just a few days.
On the page, Mrs Javed wrote:
“Fawziyah was very passionate about helping people that were less advantaged, vulnerable and needy.”
“Fawziyah volunteered for many charities and devoted much of her time helping others.
“She will be remembered for her kind nature, compassion to help others, being selfless and extremely caring.
“An only child herself and pregnant with her first baby. Fawziyah was perfect in every way.
“A beautiful soul that had given so much to others and would have continued to do so.”
