Boxing champion Amir Khan’s wife accuses in-laws of bullying her
LONODN (92 News) – The wife of boxer Amir Khan has accused the star’s family of ‘abusing and bullying’ her.
Initially making the allegations in a highly-charged Snapchat rant, Faryal Makhdoom Khan, 25, who married the boxing champion in 2013, hit out at her in-laws accusing them of “ill-treatment” and “bullying.”
The cosmetics entrepreneur has now reiterated her claims in a Facebook post, describing herself as the voice of “every abused woman” and adding that her husband is standing by her as she speaks out.
Writing on her Facebook page, she said: “There are many women who suffer in silence due to ill treatment from the in-laws. This dark side is usually kept hidden.
“We need woman at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored. “I am every abused woman’s voice and I am grateful for my husband’s support throughout my ordeal.
“I’ve always been so quiet but seriously this message is for everyone! When you bring someone’s daughter – treat her as your own. Your son will be much happier & so will you.
“When you force your son to divorce his wife, when she’s nine months pregnant!!! And your son doesn’t … and he sticks besides his wife.
“Ok, I’m guessing Islam teaches us to get married and divorce our wives and treat them bad???
“My husband has done farrrrr more than any son has done. And far more than any brother has done. But why is he treated so bad? Jealousy? That’s disgusting.”
