This reminds of the case of aqsa parvez in toronto – she was killed by her father and her brother (“honour-killing”) because she dishonoured the family by refusing to wear the hijab and a bunch of other clashes she had with their values… They were the ones to turn themselves in, actually.

Bloody hell, hope she’s doing alright.

vicki_the_house_elf ROAR – There hasn’t been any mention of Azad’s family religion, why would you assume the threats and assault has to do with religion?
