Sufiah Yusof, Math prodigy now a £130 hooker claim

here’s your full coverage of the story
[The Star] PETALING JAYA: Sufiah Yusof, the child Maths genius who won a place at Oxford University when she was just 13, has been found to be working as a prostitute, according to a report in London’s News of the World.Sufiah, now 23, whose father Farooq is a Pakistani and mother Halimathon is from Johor, was reported to have entertained an undercover reporter in her flat in Manchester.Claiming that she had posted her services for £130 (RM829) on the Internet, the newspaper said she had called herself Shilpa Lee on a hookers’ website. She is said to have advertised herself as “a sexy, smart student” who preferred “older gentlemen”.

The story in the newspaper comes just days after her father was jailed for sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls as he home-tutored them in Maths.

Sufiah passed the Maths A-Level she needed for entry into Oxford at the age of 12.

Three years into Oxford, she sparked a massive police hunt after running away.

At the time her father bizarrely claimed Sufiah had been kidnapped and brainwashed by an organisation seeking the key to her intelligence.

But Sufiah sent an e-mail to her family describing her life under her father as a “living hell”.

She was found in an Internet cafe in Bournemouth where she had been working as a hotel waitress.

She refused to go back to her parents and instead was taken into the care of social services.

By then Farooq was in jail for three years for his part in a £1.5mil (RM9.57mil) mortgage swindle.

Sufiah returned to Oxford to complete the final year of her Masters in Maths but failed to finish the course after meeting trainee lawyer Jonathan Marshall.

They were married in 2004 but her parents and siblings failed to turn up. They divorced a year later.

The report, which carried grainy photographs of a semi-nude woman it claimed was Sufiah, said the girl met the reporter who posed as a client wearing a tiny skirt, leather boots and a tight T-shirt. She was carrying three mobile phones.

She also told the reporter that she was studying for a Masters degree in Economics.

Sufiah gave no indication of any sadness at the jailing of her father the previous day. On Wednesday, Farooq, 50, was sentenced to 18 months at Coventry Crown Court for touching two 15-year-old girls when he was home tutoring them.

The report quoted her friend as saying: “Sufiah has suffered so many knocks in her life. I just hope she can drag herself out of this life she has got herself into.

“She deserves a much better life than this. Her gift has been a curse.”

SHE was a child maths genius who won a place at Oxford University aged just 13—but now the only sums Sufiah Yusof is interested in are the ones she earns as a HOOKER.

For sad Sufiah the daily equation she has to solve is simply sex equals £130 as she sells her body to punters over the internet.

The gifted girl with the winning smile had the world at her feet ten years ago and should be a rich woman by now—but last week she was busy subtracting her underwear for our undercover reporter in her dingy back street flat.

“Would you like to start your half hour now?” said Sufiah, 23, as she danced on the bed, displaying her body for examination.

Then she listed all the sleazy plus points she would throw in for our man if he took up her offer.

Calling herself Shilpa Lee, the former child prodigy still juggles with figures on a hookers’ website, describing herself as a “very pretty size 8, 32D bust and 5’5″ tall—available for booking every day from 11am to 8pm.”

She says she is a “sexy, smart student” who prefers “older gentlemen”— but a former pal who has witnessed her downfall told us: “It is all desperately heartbreaking.

“With her amazing brain she should be able to make money any way she wants. But instead her life has spiralled completely out of control.”

Life has never quite added up for Sufiah. Her descent into prostitution in Salford, Manchester, is the latest in a long line of tragedies to have engulfed her since the sunny day when she posed with her university mortar board for the world’s press outside prestigious St Hilda’s College.

Our shock revelations today come in the week her domineering dad Farooq was jailed for sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls as he home-tutored them in maths.

And he was always at the root of all her troubles— even as she passed the further maths A-Level she needed for entry to Oxford at the age of 12. In those days Sufia was a strict Muslim child who prayed five times a day and was subjected to her father’s famous Accelerated Learning Technique.

Her days involved stretching and breathing exercises in freezing rooms to keep her brain attentive.

Sufiah would then study hard and be forced to play tennis with just as much intensity as fanatical Farooq drove her on. The routine was so effective Sufiah was seeded number eight in the country for under 21s.

But three years into Oxford, the 15-year-old sparked a massive police hunt after running away.

Abuse

At the time her father bizarrely claimed Sufiah had been kidnapped and brainwashed by an organisation seeking the key to her intelligence.

But Sufiah sent an email to her family describing her life under her father as a “living hell”.

One message to her sister read: “I’ve finally had enough of 15 years of physical and emotional abuse. You know what I am talking about.”

Sufiah was missing for two weeks before being found in an internet café in Bournemouth where she had been working as a hotel waitress.

She refused to go back to her parents and instead was taken into the care of social services.

It was then revealed that Farooq had been jailed for three years in 1992 for his part in a £1.5m mortgage swindle. Before that—at the age of 19—he had been sent to borstal for his role in a conspiracy involving £100,000.

Free from the spell of her father, Sufiah returned to Oxford to complete the final year of her Masters in Maths.

But she was now more concerned with enjoying herself—and failed to finish the course after meeting trainee lawyer Jonathan Marshall.

They were married in 2004 when Sufiah was just 19 and Jonathan 24. But the strains with her family were still there.

Despite being invited, Sufiah’s parents and four brothers and sisters failed to turn up to the wedding.

Her dreams of a happy life with Jonathan were shattered when the couple divorced just a year later.Dad Farooq given 18 months

Now, in her sad little flat, she uses her body to pay the rent. Sufiah met our man, posing as a punter, at the entrance to her building wearing a tiny skirt, leather boots and a tight t-shirt. She was carrying three mobile phones.

She laughed and joked as she led him to her small apartment where a bed was already set out in the lounge.

She told him it was £130 an hour and offered him a glass of water before putting some music on to a cheap portable stereo and nervously stripping down to her red lace bra and knickers.

Sufiah then peeled off her underwear and danced on the bed. She told him she did full sex with a condom and oral sex without protection.

After our man had made his excuses, Sufiah kept him talking by telling him how she was studying for a Masters degree in Economics on a part-time two year course in London.

The former prodigy added: “I’ve got exams coming up and I’m thinking ‘Oh my God!'”

Once described by her parents as “naïve and unstreetwise”, she works alone from her flat without any obvious physical security or protection.

She even admitted to our reporter: “It’s always a surprise who you are going to meet.”

Cheerful Sufiah gave no indication of any sadness at the jailing of her father the previous day. On Wednesday Farooq, 50, was sentenced to 18 months at Coventry Crown Court for touching two 15-year-old girls when he was home tutoring them at maths.

She sells sex on website

The court heard how in May last year Farooq arrived at one of the victim’s home for a maths lesson.

He started whispering in her ear and kissing her hair and cheek. He also touched her breast and told her she was a genius and pretty before putting her hand on his upper thigh.

Destroyed

Farooq’s defence lawyer Tim Hannam said: “He’s been back in prison for over five months and knows there’ll be no more teaching and any hope he had of gaining an income from the teaching method he had developed to a high degree of success is lost to him. His reputation is destroyed.”

Now it’s clear the daughter who fled his strict regime has almost been destroyed too.

Her friend said last night: “Sufiah has suffered so many knocks in her life. I just hope she can drag herself out this life she has got herself into.

“She is a good person and deserves a much better life than this. Her gift really has been a curse.”

    Salam.
    I cannot imagine the stress you are in right now. In such, it is impossible for you to think straight and make wise decission.
    But Sufiah, prostituting is not what you want to do when u go to UK?
    You have grudges against your parents, your husband or even friends, maybe. You have financial problems, maybe. But so does everyone else! Nothing can justify with what you are doing to yourself now.
    Search deep into your soul, trace back your track and find your way back home!
    I know it is easier said than done but trust me, it is as simple as that if you want it to.
    May Allah bless you.

  5. Edoray Says:

    I don’t think those pictures are really Sufiah. By the way, if the story is true, I pray to God that He will pull her back to the truth. It’s not the way to look for money. Use your intelligence to find money and life wisely.

  6. HishamJunaid Says:

    come on, it doesn’t mean that if she’s a Muslim so that she is so naive and err..not horny, why you (mr keliru or miss keliru) are so not to accept this as a fact that she is now a HOOKER??? why?
    there are a lot of Muslim people i know here (in Malaysia) and outside of Malaysia do become a callgirl, even anak pak imam pun!!! (this is real, i dont make up stories). Please mix around, get some highly ranked people in your list of friends so you will know what im talking about. We are so doomed – get it? now, enjoy the pictures laaa!! hehehee.

    Sufiah,
    come on, we need more pictures!!

  7. WankerXT-GTI Says:

    You. The first 3 comments are pathetic. Don’t you all understand wot she have been thru? Doh? and you all blaming her for the “proffession’ she chose? Doh? She needs “shrink” not you pathetic religious belief.

    The gal has been traumatize. Molested by her own father. And all you all dumb idiots can think of is that she is being “misdirected”. Get the facts right you idiots!

  8. rationalmind Says:

    pity her.but hope she’ll come back to he real root.

    may ALLAH forgive you and bless you.

    AMIN YA RABBAL ALAMIIN

  9. hadchildhoodPROBTOO... Says:

    I think the above photo, (dark naked photo) is Sufiah..when we look closely, the photo with lipstick and makeups, look just like her except she look prettier than the above pic (which is because she’s already makeups and complete with lights and everything)….
    but what makes me confuse is, she’s pretty, she has brain (was i think), she’s complete..but why she turn out and became like this?
    At least she can be a model….and she dont have to sell her body (maybe she faced with problems like height maybe?) don’t know..
    there is no reason for her to blame her childhood experience completely for what she has been now, because she’s big enough, smart and clever (again; WAS..!) to think maturely and as a muslim!
    everybody, lets pray for her….may Allah open her heart and back to the right path..
    AMIN…

  16. Capricorn Says:

    Curse my Smurf, Maths genius discovered management theory of P/L. She is learning how to OFF Shore business. Most malaysian women complain about being abused and stuck in the household. Why dont you take example from her? After all Malaysian women run after every white dick that is in KL. Please stop pretending and give her some credit. She realised the word ASSET for what it mean and she is exploiting it in all its commercial terms. She is her own CEO. Dont be jealous!

    —————————————
    Go to hell you anak malaysian BASTARD coz I’m a Malaysian too and I do not concur with your comment. To Sufiah, I feel sorry for you for whatever you’ve gone thru. Think wisely, Insyallah.

    Sufiah, no one would know exactly and understand how you feel. Only you would know and only you could have the strength to come out of your miseries. Anyway, we respect and support your feelings and your happiness in whatever you do now and do not sink deeper and further into this fake happiness or escapism. If this is your way of healing your “wounds” we hope time would quickly heal you and we know you would quickly bounce back to your true self and you do not have to live to the expectations of others. Just be yourself. We are confident you would be able to come out of this dark period of your life quickest possible with your super brain and your training of your mind and soul. You have all our blessings and strength to come back to the right path. You have a choice and the choice is in your hands. You create your own destiny not let others do it for you. Learn from this experience and leave the past behind you and move on with your life. Don’t let your family members and their expectations of you affect your beautiful life. May God be with you, always.

    Being a genius doesn’t make one a matured person.

    I do not agree with prostitution, and what Sufiah has been doing, for me is not wise.

    I know some would say it’s her choice, but come on if she is matured enough, working sector all over the world need the ability like what Sufiah has, and she could just work somewhere that give her a better income than her former job as administrative assistant and as a prostitute.

    I guess Sufiah is lacking in terms of good advice from her colleagues. Maybe some of the people who had commented here like of what she is doing right now, but still there are other ways of gaining source of income.

    Sufiah is a genius and that is why people need her to go to the right path and choose a better job.

    Well, all in all, we all should left the choice to her. If she thinks it is right then let her be. We as a human is free to choose, as long it doesn’t harm anyone.

    Salam…

    Well.. What to say..
    Through my short life experience…. family values, home environment, culture, the bringing up experiences, exposures in schools n colleges, friends, neighbours and meida is ‘d’ ingredients that would mould and may change one’s character and personality..
    A Good case for all of us to ponder??
    Please look into your on soul and ask … what do u want in life??
    To be Sucessful … Wealth?? Health?? Happy Family?? Place in d Society?? Career to be proud of?? Close to God?? Or ALL the above…
    Whether we fell sorry for her of dislike her, Nobody can change her… except HERSELF…

    I think it would be better if she just become rich rather than playing with things she should not be playing with!!!!
