Harry Potter star 'beaten after meeting non-Muslim man'
Telegraph UK ^ | 12/20/10 | staff

Posted on 12/20/2010 11:46:31 AM PST by Nachum

A Harry Potter star was beaten, called a ''slag'' and threatened with death after she met a young man who was not a Muslim, a court heard today.

Victim Afshan Azad, 22, played Padma Patil, a classmate of the teenage wizard, in the blockbuster Hollywood films based on the children's books by JK Rowling.

She was assaulted and branded a ''prostitute'' after meeting a young Hindu man, a relationship which brought anger from her father, Abul Azad, 53, and brother, Ashraf, 28, Manchester Crown Court heard.

The frightened actress later fled through her bedroom window after threats were made to kill her.

But despite attempts to get her to come to court for the trial of her father and brother, Miss Azad would not attend voluntarily, the court was told.

Both men were charged with making threats to kill her and her brother was also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm on his sister.

Crazy, crazy religion. A warped and fearful attitude toward female sexuality is a real danger sign in our species.

Unless this happened all over again, this is an old story. I read about this event months ago.

Now imagine that a young Christian woman was beaten by her father and brother for dating a muslim man and this would be front page news in every paper in America and around the world. The muslims can threaten and even kill their own daughters on the basis of “honour” and there’s barely a peep.

It must really suck to be in a liberal’s mind
and have to try to justify “all cultures/religions are equal”
and have to... defend... something like this.

Usually, they ignore these things and/or act like they hadn’t heard of them. Or, sometimes, try to come up with an equivalent in Christianity.

This girl is fortunate that she didn’t get killed by her father and brother, like Canadian teenager Aqsa Parvez, who was brutally murdered in December 2007 near Toronto. The scary thing isn’t that there are delusional muslims who perpetrate such crimes. The scary thing is that most of the Canadian and American media turn a blind eye, and that most Canadians and Americans react with a shrug. If we aren’t incited to outrage by this madness, then we are collectively sleep-walking to our own executions.

Liberals often accuse Christians with concerns about homosexuality to be “in the closet.” But this crowd seems to have some SERIOUS issues. The liberals will give them a pass though, since they are almost as anti-Christian as the libs.

We had a Muslim immigrant kill his two teenage daughters here in the DFW area. They wanted to date. They were 16 and going to an American High School. Imagine that. He was never caught and is believed to be in Pakistan.

Dear Mlle. Afshan Azad.

I pray you will somehow get this note.

You can use your fame to prevent what has happened to you, from happening to hundreds, or even thousands or tens of thousands, of other young women. This tool will help you:

If ever you are ready, consider a final, public renunciation of Islam. You will be far from alone.

KEEP TROTH.

Hindu boy, man that’s even worse than the other adherents of Ibrahim and the associated revealed religions.

Funny thing, if these bozos tried this in India, they’d be nailed, but apparently in the UK, it is acceptable.

A warped & fearful attitude towards everything describes Islam nicely.

Gloria Alred and NOW?

They are simply into their ideology to oppose Christianity.
They don’t even see their hypocrisy in not speaking out against Islam. It’s entirely consistent to them.

You beat me to posting this incident..Arlington area of DFW...I remember it well. It was just “no big deal” with the media. The father just blended back into the Muslim community, he will never be brought to justice in this life (maybe when he stands before the ONE TRUE GOD !!).
I just saw a program called Global Voices where Jewish groups were sponsoring Somali Muslims to come to America. Unbelievable!! Helping their sworn enemies, and helping to plant more seeds of Islam in America. Just how stupid are we???

Or, sometimes, try to come up with an equivalent in Christianity.

Well, I heard once, on a late night radio talk show, that in the 5th century a Christian man beat his daughter for dating a Roman soldier on a remote island in the Mediterranean. A complaint against the man was sent to the church in Constantinople but, according to archeological records, they never replied. So it's obvious that Christianity is just as bad as Islam.

(eyes rolling so far back I think I'm passing out from the level of sarcasm needed to write that)
