Harry Potter Actress Victim Of Attempted Muslim Honor Killing

Afshan Azad, the Muslima actress who plays ‘Padma Patil’ in the Harry Potter movies has fled her home in Manchester, England after her father and brother tried to murder her.

Her father Abdul Azad, 54, and brother Ashraf Azad, 28, were charged with attempted murder, and her brother was additionally charged with assaulting his sister and causing her actual bodily harm.

The two were jailed after the assault and had been in custody until this week’s court appearance when they made bail.

The spineless Daily Mail refused to use the words 'Muslim', 'Islam' or 'honor killings' in their article, but the key to the unwritten part of the story is in the conditions of the father and brother being allowed to be released on bail.

They have to abide by an 11pm to 6am curfew and forbidden to travel to London ( where Afshan Azad is now staying with friends) or to contact what the Mail refers to as 'an unnamed man'.

The ‘unnamed man’ is obviously someone the young actress had been seeing without the permission of her male 'owners'. And as a result, her father and brother tried to kill her in an attempted Muslim ‘honor killing’.

It’s also clear that the police and the court recognize that the girl life is in deadly danger because of the restrictions on the bail.

And do her father and brother regret what they tried to do? Are you kidding, Sadiq? Listen to her brother, who actually was charged with attempted murder and assault:

‘My younger brother is going to get harassed at college. All our family is going to be harassed by the community because of this.

Speaking at the family’s semi-detached home, her brother Ashraf, a customer services adviser, said: ‘We are going to get trouble from the community now. It is bad news for our safety, her safety.

Never mind that he tried to kill his sister - it's 'oh, what will the neighbors think? Especially since we got caught.'

Actually, I think its her poisonous father and brother that are bad news for Afshan Azad's safety. And the fact that they were allowed bail. She's definitely going to need to be watching her back now with these two on the loose.

As long as people in the West are too spineless to label things for what they are and ditch this kind of absurd cultural relativism, other other women will be victimized by this - and not all of them will be lucky enough to escape with their lives the way Afshan Azad did.

please helps me write more gooder!
