TOI, Dec 22 2010

LONDON: A Muslim actress who played the role of a classmate of Harry Potter in the blockbuster films, has been allegedly persecuted by her family for having a relationship with a young Hindu man.

Afshan Azad, 22, played the role of Padma Patil in Harry Potter movies, but in real life her family allegedly beat her and threatened to kill her for meeting a young man who was not a Muslim. 

The Manchester Crown Court was told that she was called a 'slag', assaulted and called a 'prostitute' after meeting the Hindu man, a relationship which angered her father, Abul Azad, 53, and brother, Ashraf, 28.

The frightened actress later fled through her bedroom window after threats were made to kill her, reports from Manchester said. But despite attempts to get her to come to court for the trial of her father and brother, Azad would not attend voluntarily, the court was told.

Both men were charged with making threats to kill her and her brother was also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm on his sister.

The prosecution on Monday decided to accept a guilty plea of assault by her brother, and both men were formally found not guilty of making threats to kill.

Her father accepted to be bound over to keep the peace for 12 months. Her brother Ashraf Azad will be sentenced for the assault on January 21.

Azad's character was a witch who was in the same year as Harry Potter, played by Daniel Radcliffe, at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft And Wizardry.
