Skip to comments.'Harry Potter' Actress' Brother Sentenced in Her 'Honor Beating'
Posted on 01/22/2011 8:06:12 PM PST by I still care
The brother of the Muslim actress Afshan Azad, who played Padma Patil in the Harry Potter films, was sentenced to six months in prison Thursday for beating his sister after he heard her talking to her Hindu boyfriend.
Ashraf Azad, 28, called his sister a prostitute and screamed ''Marry a Muslim or you die!'' during a three-hour beating, during which, the actress said in a Manchester, England court, she feared for her life.
Afshan Azad, 21, was punched, strangled, and dragged by her hair by her brother, but she still pleaded for the judges leniency during the sentencing hearing, and asked he not be jailed.

In it you also find the parents were involved in this, and tried to send her back for a forced, arranged marriage. And the girl begs for leniency for them.
What a horrid family. What a horrid religion. However, they didn't seem to have a problem with her playing an Indian in the movie - which they probably profitted from.
Muslim’s have convince me they are nuts.
The girl is the one to the far right. She is quite pretty.
I prefer the words “enslaved to an evil religion”.
Of course, that would make people quite nuts.
There are Indian Muslims. Lots of them. I don't think they specified which variety, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh, or Christian, her character was supposed to be. Although her twin's name, Parvati, is that of a Hindu Goddess.
Still... 6 months for nearly beating your sister to death over a several month period.
Seems like "preferential treatment" for a "favored minority" to me. Got be "senstive" to "cultural issues".. NOT!
Oh geeez. Another idea for a "reality" show.
The words of a doomed idiot. Next time she will die.
At least the SOB’s wife had the good sense to hide the knives when he starting screaming for a knife to kill his sister with.
This girl is either trying to get some kind of favor from her parents or she is an utter fool.
She is not an idiot, but she is doomed. Next time she will die anyway. So very sad.
Is this getting wider coverage? I hope it gets TONS of exposure, because maybe something like this will make the millions (billions?) of Harry Potter fans see Islam for what it is. I personally don’t follow Harry Potter stuff at all, but obviously many do.
God Bless this poor girl, who through no fault of her own, was born into this hideousness.
Afshan Azad snuck out a window the next morning.
“She realized she would have to leave and felt she could not live any longer in that environment,” Vardon said.
***That would be the enviroment of a loving Muslim brother...loving you to death with the lovley Islamic peace.....***
This is an obvious miscarriage of justice. Everyone knows that she deserved the beating, females are automatically guilty. /s
And it's not like her other family members, or other Muslims, would kill her for testifying against her brother...right? Yeah, what an "idiot." She is truly a victim of the bully cult.
Based on his job..one of our sons has a lot of Muslim/Pakistani associates. Domestic violence..even among the educated and wealthy is common place. He has been asked by associates..”Does your father beat your mother?”. And they are surprised to hear no. All the Muslim kids fear their parents and sometimes live two lives..one for their parents and another for themselves.
Something about getting some out of the gene pool keeps ringing in my head ...
The more the better...
Assault is a criminal charge. Should be. Guess not under Muslim law.
You don't know much about Islam, do you? Do you know what a fatwa is, and what the thinking is that goes along with that?
It seems to me like you are more concerned with defending your use of the word "idiot" than you are about really thinking what this young lady is up against, and what we are all up against. Please reconsider your perspective, and I mean that genuinely. I pray for her, and I hope you will too.
OK, I’m sayin’ it.
Live by the sword, die by the sword.
I don’t CARE how muslims treat each other.
This stuff has no bearing in my country, I will NOT feel guilty about it.
I don’t care if she’s an actress..what is an actress. but a job? I am not to blame, my country is not to blame.
My country, or myself, can not save everyone. I can abhorr it, not like it, despise it, but that changes nothing!
In the words of a movie icon, (since hollywood is so big on this stuff) “Frankly my, dear, but I don’t give a damn”.
Your post does not address this young woman’s situation. She didn’t live by the sword from what I can see, but it sure looks like she is going to die by Mohammed’s sword because through no fault of her own she was born into this situation.
And I get it, you don’t care. Guess what? God does.
When I returned to the U.S., I obtained insurance with State Farm. About a week later, my insurance agent informed me they would cancel my policy because I failed to report a ticket issued in my home city while I was in the overseas area. After spending a lot of time and money tracking down the facts, I figured out what happened. Since the ticket was in my name, I was given the vehicle information. A friend with the city gave me the owners name. After that it was pretty easy to identify the guilty party. Truth is, I was ready to send his butt to jail. Had my sister not pleaded for me to refrain, I'd have done it.
Sometimes you give family a break, even though they don't deserve it.
What a horrid family. What a horrid religion.
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries!
Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia
in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly
systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of
property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded
sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its
dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must
belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or
a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam
has ceased to be a great power among men."
"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the
brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence
of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund,
Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread
throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were
it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science
against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might
fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."
-- Winston Churchill
Of course God Cares
And yes, I get it.
But , I am not reponsible or to blame.
This brother is going to have hundreds of English women throwing themselves at him. I bet he has well over 100 lover letters already.
Allah's Cadaver Zoticuss!
No one said you were. This is not about you.
I watched the movies, and that brazen slut had her hair uncovered, and her arms bare!
Allah-ah-ah-CHOO Poobear, she is guilty of inflaming unholy lust in every male in the theater who hadn't immediately gouged out his eyes before burning down the projection booth. /s
Yes, God does care.
But I am not God, nor do I assume to be like Him.
Should I feel bad because she was born to this situation?
No. Her situation is not of my making. Yes, I can feel bad, but I divorce myself of responsibility.
In short, shit happens.
Do you want to hear my pathetic life story? I’ve had some hard times, Big Time. I’ve gone hungry, I’ve been made fun of, but, nothing to you huh? Because I was born in the....wrong country...to feel sorry for my self?
I guess A foreign dictator must persecute me before I an worthy. . . .
Didn’t say it was.
This story is far from over.
Of course not!
Because I am not a victim of sharia law. I was not born into something you abhorr..
Something that you can feel good about yourself by condemning.
If you have something to share, then why not start your own thread in the “Chat” section? I’ll participate if you choose to do so, I just don’t think it belongs in this thread.
I could be wrong, but if you are looking for advice/counsel/etc for matters not directly related to this thread I am trying to steer you in what I believe is the right direction.
Or the muslim “Cosby” show Katie Couric suggested.
Thank you so much for helping me with a deflection of your own making. My opinion must be flawed because it does not coincide with yours.
I didn’t ask for “council” I was making a legitimate point. If you can’t handle that, don’t pass it off on me.
With greatest respecr,
She should follow, Fathima Rifqa Bary’s lead and leave and don’t turn back.
21 years of being raised by these people creats one hell of a Stockholm syndrome. She isn’t rational, because she was raised not to be.
KittenClaws, I was really trying to offer you a helpful suggestion. FR is a great place, and if you have something you want to hash out I think a lot of us would be willing to offer constructive input and help you.
“Still... 6 months for nearly beating your sister to death over a several month period.” He’ll be back to finish the
job. This isn’t the end of this. If he’s allowed near her
again, he’ll rub her out. All in the name of Alla of course.
I'd say the same thing about voodoo in Haiti. As long as folks follow that cult, they'll never rise above the grinding poverty they've been in since they received their independence from France.
Wonder if these honor beatings, female circumcisions and killings will make it into that new muslim sitcom they are cooking up for primetime TV...
Threatening her with death as he beat her for three hours — six month sentence.
Had had actually murdered her, he’d have received twelve months. /sarc
did this get any coverage in the MSM besides a web report or two?
