Pakistani actor and ex-Bigg Boss contestant Veena Malik was in the news recently for getting divorced. The actor filed a plea seeking divorce in the Lahore family court in the first week of January and the court accepted Veena’s plea and issued a decree last month validating divorce between the couple. Now reports suggest that Veena’s husband of three years, Asad Khattak, abused and assaulted her. On Tuesday, in a Pakistani television show, ARY News programme 11th Hour, Veena Malik claimed that her husband had physically and mentally abused her.
According to many Pakistani media reports, the host of the show, Waseem Badami invited Veena Malik and her husband Asad Khattak on the show to try and reconcile the estranged couple. He also invited Maulana Tariq Jameel to act as a pacifier between the two.
When Asad apologised to Veena in front of many people, the actor refused to forgive him and said that she cannot forget two things, “First, that he (Khattak) beat me; second, that he disrespected me… not once, but repeatedly.” At this, the Maulana intervened and asked Veena to forgive him when he is guilty of his actions. Initially, Veena preferred to stick to her decision but on further persuasion, she agreed to give her husband a second chance but only on court’s approval.
Meanwhile, Asad Khattak has been trying his best to get back Veena in his life. He has been sharing some lovey-dovey posts on his social media account.
