Afshan Azad, Harry Potter Actress “Beaten, Threatened & Branded a Prostitute” by Her Brother & Father After Dating a Non-Muslim
You have heard of Muslim honor killing, how about honor beatings … because Islam means peace. Not even Harry Potter actresses are exempt from Muslim honor killings.
22 year old Afshan Azad, the Harry Potter actress who played Padma Patil was attacked by her bother and father who threatened to kill her because she dare date a Hindu man. She was branded a “whore” by her family when they learned who her boyfriend was. The actress was forced to flee her home under threat of death. Her father, 54 year old Abul Azad and her brother 28 year old Ashraf were arrested and charged with making threats to kill her. However, due to fear for her life, Afshan Azad did not testify against her father and brother. Azad’s brother pleads guilty to assaulting her; however, prosecutors allowed the two to skate on the death threat charges.
A Harry Potter actress fled her home after her father and brother threatened to kill her for going out with a Hindu man, a court heard yesterday.
Afshan Azad, 22, who appeared in the blockbuster movies as Padma Patil, was attacked and branded a ‘slag’ when Muslim relatives found out about her boyfriend.
The actress was so scared that she escaped out of her bedroom window and later fled her home city.
Police were called and her father, Abul Azad, 54, and brother, Ashraf, 28, were arrested and charged with making threats to kill her. The actress’s brother was also charged with assault.
But Miss Azad refused to testify and yesterday failed to turn up at their trial at Manchester Crown Court.
Instead Crown prosecutors decided to accept a guilty plea to assault by her brother while both men were formally found not guilty of making threats to kill.
What a brother, assaulting his sister because she dare date a non-Muslim.
As stated at Weasel Zippers, this goes on all the time and no one knows, except in the case of a high profile case like a Harry Potter actress. Imagine what goes on when no one notices.
What justice out of the United Kingdom. This is how you treat a woman that is so fearful of being a part of an “honor killing” that you do not prosecute the father and brother for making death threats? UNREAL. So now Muslims are allowed to get away with threatening woman. Then again what’s new. That’s right, Islam is a religion of peace.
More from The Daily Mail:
Richard Vardon QC, prosecuting, said the actress was ‘the victim of an unpleasant assault by her brother’at the family home in Longsight, Manchester, in May.
He added: ‘The reason for the assault, apparently her association with a Hindu man, that apparently being disapproved of by her family who are Muslim.’
Mr Vardon said Abul Azad had been woken up by his son, Ashraf, shouting: ‘Sort out your daughter! She’s a slag.’
He went on: ‘He continued to further assault her, shouting, “Just kill her!”’
Reading from the victim’s statement, the prosecutor added: ‘My father began saying he would do it, a reference to kill her, as he did not want his sons to have her blood on their hands and he would do time for it. Then she began to feel very scared.’
Her father was said to have threatened to take her to Bangladesh and force her into an arranged marriage.
