Wife beaten and ‘hair shaved off by husband’ after she refused to dance for his friends


A man has appeared in court accused of attacking his wife, stripping her naked and beating her with a pole before shaving her head, after she posted a video of herself crying online.

Asma Aziz, 22, claims she was attacked and humiliated by her husband and his friends because she had refused to dance for them.

Her husband, Mian Faisal, and an employee of his, appeared at the Model Town Courts in Lahore, Pakistan, on Monday, after four days on remand.

Last week, mother-of-three Asma appeared in the video with bruises on her face and her hair shaved off, begging the public for help.

Judicial Magistrate Shahid Zia has now ordered Faisal to remain in custody to await a medical report on his alleged victim’s injuries.

Faisal told the court he wanted the chance to explain his side of the story.

Asma was present at Monday’s hearing along with her lawyers, where she urged the court to bring her husband to justice.

She said Faisal had frequently forced her to dance for his friends previously, but this time she said no.

In the video last week, she claimed how he and his friends ‘ripped her clothes off’ before she was pinned down while her husband shaved her head then set it on fire.

‘They (my husband and his friend) undressed and beat me with a pipe,’ she said in the footage.

My clothes were bloody. I was bound by a pipe and hung from the fan. He threatened to hang me naked.’ Faisal said he was ready to face the court’s judgement but demanded his side of the story be heard.

‘You [the media] have been advocates for Asma for the past one week — give an hour to me and listen to what I have to say,’ he said.

‘I will accept any punishment I am given.’

Asma says that although Faisal was kind and loving when they first married four years ago, after just six months she noticed his behaviour beginning to change. She claims he began to beat her after drinking alcohol and often invited his friends for parties at their house.

Asma also alleges that when she went to police, officers refused to register her claim because she could not pay a bribe, saying on camera she felt her only option was to ask the public for help.

Shireen Mazari, the Minister for Human Rights in Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cabinet, wrote on Twitter that his office had taken notice and ordered the arrest of two men – Asma’s husband Mian Faisal and his employee Rashid Ali.

They were reportedly handed over to police on Thursday on a four-day physical remand. Asma testified before a judicial magistrate on Friday, Pakistan Today reports.

In her statement she said: ‘My husband brought two of his friends over to our house and asked me to drink alcohol and dance for them.

‘When I refused, my husband, Faisal, tied my feet and started to torture me.’

She alleges that three of her husband’s employees were present at their house at the time. ‘When I tried to run out of the house, my husband hit me with a manhole cover,’ she said in the statement.

She also told the magistrate that after the attack: ‘My friend came over and took me to the police station.

When we asked the police officials to conduct a medical examination they asked for Rs5,000 (around £55).

‘The police neither gave a report nor conducted a medical examination.

Punjab police spokesperson Nabila Ghazanfar told ARY News that a high-level investigation has been opened to look into the incident, pending which the victim has been put under police protection.

The results of Asma’s medical examination, seen by DawnNewsTV, reportedly show that she had multiple bruises on her left arm, bruises and swelling on both cheeks, a cut on her hand, redness and watering in her left eye, and had suffered dizziness and vomiting.

Amnesty International South Asia last week tweeted that while it is ‘glad that strong and swift action’ was taken against Asma’s alleged attackers, it was dismayed at the ‘alarming rise in reported cases of violence against women’.

‘System change to protect women is necessary. Action can’t only be taken on a case-by-case basis,’ Amnesty said.

My view: It's terrible, this is pure evil, I hope her husband gets the punishment he deserves for the brutal act he allegedly did to his wife.
