Asad abused and assaulted me, Veema Malik accuses hubby


Veena Malik ends her three-year-old marriage with husband Asad Khattak and accused that her husband abused and assaulted her. Baring her heart to a television show -- ARY News programme 11th Hour -- in Pakistan on Monday she alleged that her husband abused her physically and mentally.

In an attempt to reconcile Veena and Asad, the show’s host invited Waseem Badami called on Maulana Tariq Jameel on his show to 'facilitate' the process.

When Asad Khattak asked for forgiveness to Veena “every single day”, Veena revealed that she could not forgive Asad for two things. She stated, "First, that he (Khattak) beat me; second, that he disrespected me... not once, but repeatedly."

 "If he is asking you for forgiveness, give him one chance," the Maulana told Malik. "He is saying it before so many people, he should be given another chance."

On Maulana’s request, Veena agreed to forgive Asad and give him one more chance but on a request that she wants a written guarantee with court’s approval. Asad Khattar readily agreed.

The family court in Lahore accepted Veena’s ‘khula’ (divorce) application, which she filed in January. She was living separately from Asad for the past three months.

Since the divorce was filed by Veena, she has to return the 25 per cent of the ‘haq mehr’ (dowry money) to Mr Khatak. The court had summoned Asad Bashir Khan, but he neither appeared nor filed a reply. Veena Malik was the one who filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences and saying that they could not live together.

Veena Malik's divorce plea was accepted and the estranged couple was granted divorce. 'The court accepted Veena's plea and issued a decree last month validating divorce between the couple,' a court official told PTI.

Veena Malika and Asad Khattak got married in December 2013 in Dubai  and were blessed with two children, Abram (2) and Amal (1).

After marriage, Veena bade goodbye to the entertainment world but it is learnt that she wants to rejoin showbiz against her husband’s choice. Asad wants Veena to take care of their home and children.

Veena came into limelight in India for she took part in the reality show, ‘Bigg Boss’. She also starred in Bollywood films like ‘Zindagi 50-50 ‘and ‘Super Model’ and Kannada film ‘Dirty Picture: Silk Sakkath Maga’. Veena Malik made headlines in the past for her nude appearance, sudden marriage announcement, for naming her son AbRam after Shahrukh Khan’s son and she shocked everyone by her sudden divorce declaration.
