Young muslim actress attacked by family

In something of a shocker - alright, I'm lying - a young female Muslim actress has been attacked by her father and brother. It is surmised as a result of her dating a Hindu man.

Afshan Azad's Family Tries To KILL Her: 'Harry Potter' Star's Brother & Father Attack

It seem's her brother actually managed to harm her, as he is being charged with ABH (Actual Bodily Harm), while her father is being charged with threatening to kill her.

I do wonder if this would have been reported on at all, if the girl wasn't from the Harry Potter films. I hope she recovers well, though and doesn't let this shameful act get her down.


Here is a further article on the attack:

Dad charged over threat to kill Harry Potter star.

She was allegedly attacked at her home in Longsight, Manchester, on May 21 this year.

Now her father Abdul Azad, 54, and brother, Ashraf Azad, 28, both of Beresford Road, Longsight, have appeared in court.

Abdul is accused of threatening to kill his daughter and Ashraf of threatening to kill and assault occasioning actual bodily harm against his sister.

Both men appeared at Manchester magistrates court and the case was adjourned until later this month for committal proceedings to crown court.

And another, which mentions that her father and brother are both out on bail, until their next court appearance on the 12th.

The two appeared on a Manchester Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday, and have been released on bail. They are due back in court on July 12.

I find myself hoping she is being adequately looked after while those two are free.
