Uzma Khan has filed an FIR against the three women that had barged into her home and verbally and physically hurt her and her sister Huma Khan along with 12 gunmen. Her statement is as follows:
“I have been shamed, harassed, been threatened to kill in the past 3 days. I feel like I have nothing to lose now and I have decided to fight the strongest people of Pakistan,” she said in a statement. ”
For me it is either I get justice or I get killed but there will be no turning back now.
“I will fight against daughters… of Malik Riaz who stormed into my house around midnight with 12 gunmen. I request the police to register my FIR and conduct me and my sister’s medical examination before our wounds start to heal. I hope I am as much Pakistani as Malik Riaz.”
This is my official statement – Remember your gunmen pointed their guns towards two orphans and sexually harassed. We might be weak but now we have faith in Allah and people of Pakistan. I request you to share my statement and standby me in my difficult times. #uzmakhan pic.twitter.com/0QNgBUlTRb

The Viral Video
Most of you have probably seen the viral video by now. Three women and many gunmen barged into a house and trashed it. The house allegedly belonged to Uzma Khan, a Pakistani actress and model, though it has lately been alleged that it belonged to Usman Malik. Uzma Khan was then verbally and physically abused by the three women on the grounds that she was having an affair with the husband, Usman Malik, of one of those women.
Conflicting information has been coming out about the details of the incident. Some sources claim that Usman Malik is the nephew of Malik Riaz, the real estate tycoon and founder of Bahria Town. Malik Riaz has denied the claim.
Furthermore, Amna Usman has denied that her husband, whom she has now left, has any direct relation with Malik Riaz. She also alleged that she had repeatedly warned Uzma Khan to back off and stop the affair and the attack caught on video was a last-ditch effort after all else had failed.
Celebs Reach Out
Following the release of the video, some celebrities also tweeted in support of Uzma. Some were of the mindset that no matter what had transpired, verbal and physical abuse is not Ok.
Two very different topics being argued. One is infidelity – which no one in their right mind stands for. The other is – how the powerful get away with absolutely anything! I stand for accountability always. May we all be treated equally by the law of this land. #UzmaKhan

Let’s differentiate b/w what is a moral issue & a legal issue. Two wrongs cannot make one right. The right to security at your home is a basic human right enshrined in law. This is a real test for the authorities,who need to prove to us that no one is above the law! #uzmakhan

Revenge or teaching someone a lesson is no form of justice. If two people are not compatible with each other then they should just amicably part ways. Remember.. Strongest is not the one who picks weapons to fight but the one who handles things with patience.#UzmaKhan

Whatever the charges or crimes may be, a court of law should be responsible for dealing out judgment and not civilians.
