Mohammad Ikramullah is the son of Sophia Katun, and lives on the top floor in the building he had build for them, together with his wife, daughter and son in law. He has been living in the United States with his whole family, two more sons. They went there 35 years ago, to seek a cure for their youngest sons cancer, but did not succeed. His wife got a job at a bank, and they decided to stay, thus having the benefits of education and opportunities for their children. Five years ago they moved back. Now he often sits with his mother in the television room, enjoying her company.
