Khan Vs Makhdoom

The recent on-screen clash between Faryal Makhdoom and Amir Khan’s family put everyone in surprise. People thought that their family is looking picture perfect and everything’s going great but a real story is something more to it. Some of you will be aware that Faryal Makhdoom snap chatted story of her three-year-married life and set severe accusations of abusing, bullying, even threatening physically and mental torturing. The story appeared out to be a shocking depiction of her personal life and in-laws.

Khan Vs Makhdoom actually started with Faryal Makhdoom’s snaps accused Amir Khan’s mother and sister of trying to destroy her marriage and forcing his husband to divorce Faryal during her pregnancy. She put some serious allegations on Khan’s sisters Mariyah and Tabinda of hitting her when husband Amir was not home. She, as evidence, posted screenshots of Khan’s siblings Haroon Khan and Tabinda of bullying Faryal online. In coming follow-up, Amir’s sister Tabinda posted on Instagram that “Do I look like I can beat someone up”?

By coming across Faryal Makhdoom’s story, I have learned that domestic abuse isn't the concern of only lower & middle class but exists everywhere. This curse has now not just confined with Pakistani society but also knocking at some modern British family. However, the interesting part is, Faryal decided to stand up and speak out unlike many of our Pakistan women. The difference maybe of Faryal’s husband who stuck at her side rather divorcing her or throwing her out.  

Faryal claims in her Facebook post that she is the voice of every woman. Speaking out against in-laws still, considers a taboo in society. By raising voice against this abuse, women will feel more influential because Faryal has just set the example.

Some people are posting nasty stuff against Faryal’s story calling it a publicity stunt. According to them, there are far more decorous, powerful and efficient ways to stand up for you. Why Faryal made it public instead of taking this issue to the court and why she stayed silent for so long? But as I mentioned, this is a family issue and only the family members will know all the consequences of the matter. This is just a one-side of the story; the other may have many unknown things. So, passing a verdict on few snaps would be unpleasant but the accusations should be taken seriously as abuse is no good for anyone. These matters become almost impossible to overlook or brush under the carpet.
