The brother of Afshan Azad (Padma Patil) has been put in jail for assaulting Ms. Azad June of last year:

The brother of Harry Potter actress Afshan Azad was jailed on Friday for six months for attacking his sister after discovering she was dating a non-Muslim.


The actress, who now lives in London, had asked the court not to jail her older brother.
But judge Roger Thomas sent him to prison for six months after he pleaded guilty to the assault.
"This persistent attack was accompanied by serious and very hurtful abuse and threats," the judge told the defendant.
"The background to this offence lies in the concern that you, and perhaps other family members, had about Afshan's relationship with a young man who was not of the Islamic faith."

Wow what a sad thing to happen, her bro sounds nuts buts lets remember that this a sign of a person who takes his faith wayyy to far and NOT what all people of the Islamic faith believe or act like.

About time. This happened a while ago.

Should have been longer than six months though.

This has got to be very hard for her. She obviously loves her brother still and knows what he did to we was wrong. I feel for her. Good luck Afshan! My prayers are with you and your family.

I really think he needs to be locked up for a least more than a year. there was no sense in what he did, he had no right to hurt her.
