|Controversy||In 2010, her father and brother threatened her and attacked her for dating a Hindu boy. The matter went in Manchester Magistrates’ Court on 29 June 2010, and her brother was charged with “assault occasioning actual bodily harm.” On 21 January 2011, her brother was imprisoned for six months. The verdict of judge Roger Thomas QC in this case was,
This persistent attack was accompanied by serious and very hurtful abuse and threats. It must have been a miserable and frightening experience for your sister which, she suggested, lasted for about three hours or so. The background to this offence lies in the concern that you, and perhaps other family members, had about Afshan’s relationship with a young man who was not of the Islamic faith.”
He further said,
This is a sentence that is designed to punish you for what you did and also to send out a clear message to others that domestic violence involving circumstances such as have arisen here cannot be tolerated. The court heard that Miss Azad was in her bedroom, talking on her mobile phone and was overheard by her brother in the bathroom, who assumed she was speaking to her Hindu boyfriend.” BBC News
