Update: Brother Jailed for Attacking Harry Potter Actress Who Dated Non-Muslim

Posted on January 21, 2011 at 10:01am by  Jonathon M. Seidl

 The brother of Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad has been jailed for six months after pleading guilty to brutally beating the actress because she was dating a non-Muslim.

(Read our original report on this story.)

Afshan, 22, was beaten last year, called a “whore,” and reportedly threatened with death after her family found out she was seeing a young Hindu man. Reuters reports the beating also included being punched, dragged around by her hair, and strangled by her 28-year-old brother Ashraf Azad.

The assault took place at the family’s home in Manchester, England. After the assault, both the brother and the father were found not guilty of making death threats, but Ashraf pleaded guilty to one count of assault.

Reuters says Afshan, who now lives in London, asked the judge in the case not to send her brother to jail. But judge Roger Thomas ignored that request, and instead sent Ashraf to prison for six months after he pleaded guilty.

“This persistent attack was accompanied by serious and very hurtful abuse and threats,” the judge told Ashraf in court.

“The background to this offense 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.”

Afshan played a classmate of Harry Potter in several of the blockbuster Hollywood films


Muslim Woman’s Cousin Allegedly Warns: ‘Wear the Hijab or I’ll Kill You’

Posted on January 20, 2011 at 5:23am by  Meredith Jessup

A 21-year-old British Muslim is accusing her cousin of threatening her life after she decided to stop wearing a hijab, the traditional Muslim headscarf, the Daily Mail reports.

In court testimony on Tuesday, Alya Al-Safar claimed her cousin, Mohamed Al-Hakim, screamed that she brought “shame” to her family whom he branded as “bitches and whores” because of her decision.

After considering taking the step for more than two years, Al-Safar says her cousin’s mother “wasn’t happy” that she had decided to stop covering her hair, prompting Al-Hakim to phone her with the threat.

“Listen Alya, I am warning you if by the 19th of June you are not wearing the hijab back, I am warning you I will kill you and harm you. I am giving you ten days. You brought shame to your family, you should not have done that,” Al-Hakim is accused of saying.

According to Al-Safar, her cousin instructed her to play the phone message for her family on June 9 of last year.

“Listen to me carefully, it has (sic) been three days and I did not sleep,” Al-Safar told the jury Tuesday. “I have (sic) decided not to go out of the house for two weeks.”

Al-Hakim denies threatening his cousin.

“I didn’t know if he was joking, if he was just mad, or if it was true and he would do it,” Al-Safar testified. “He started shouting, ‘Listen to me, you had better do what I said. I have seen you on the Edgware Road [a busy street in central London] and if I see you again I will kill you.’”

Al-Safar also testified that her cousin allegedly threatened her father and that her family warned her not to leave the house, fearing her cousin would hurt her.
