Fashion/ beauty blogger Amna Atiq, 24, in Islamabad, mum of 4 years old Daughter, took her own life ahead of her second abusive marriage with her Lover.
Her father Australian National, who had married a young girl of her daughter’s age after death of Aman’s mother, under the influence of his young second wife, got her daughter Amna married after arranging a man of his choice.
Amna wanted to marry her lover, Ayan Ali, but her dad rejected the him, on the grounds that he wasn’t financially stable.
She tied knot in an arrange marriage ceremony in 2013, and had a daughter named Fajar, in 2015. But Amna’s husband turned out to be druggy, an alcoholic and a womanizer. He would physically, mentally and emotionally abuse her to the point that she went into a deep depression.
The couple divorced at the end of 2015. This was the time when her first lover Ayaan Ali, entered in her and her daughter’s life. they married, she was happy, loved and feel safe.
But, something changed in her second husband who sometime down the line turned out to be the same as the first one, or maybe worse. He would physically torture her, taunting her about her past, hitting her, burning her hands and so much more.
During this time, Amna wrote on her facebook,
Every woman has a past. Some were physically abused. Some had violent parents. Some are abused as a child from their own family members. Some had messed up love stories.
Some had been drugged. Some were date raped. Some had been viciously photographed on bed. Some had been blackmailed by their ex-boyfriend. Some were in an abusive relationship. Some had a broken family. Some had a divorce. Some had an obesity issue. Some had financial droughts. Some had drug or alcohol addiction. Some had a few unsuccessful suicide attempts.
If you see a woman, who went through any of these but had already wiped her tears, tied her hair up, masked her sorrows with a divine smile, stood tall and strong, started walking towards her future because she still has some hope left inside her and has not given up on the concept of love that still exists in this world.
Do not stab her with her past. Do not confront her. Do not slap her with more abuse. Give way for her and walk beside her. May be hold her hands and walk for a while. You’ll know how sweet that soul is and how strong her hopes are! You’ll be amazed at how she carries herself after all her energy has been sucked out.
She need not always be only the woman next door or from a different home. She could be your own friend, your own sister, your own girlfriend, your own wife, even may be your own mother.
Do not judge her by her past. Gift her the peaceful future that she deserves. Hold her hands against the world, which knows only to judge. Give her the love that she always yearned for.
She had also claimed that her husband Ayan Ali was abusive. She said her husband was insecure about the fact that she was an independent, self earning woman and he took those insecurities out on her.
But last day before yesterday as per the routine Amna came live on the group for makeup tutorial but since her finger was badly burnt women asked her to talk instead that’s when Amna broke into tears and mentioned how she had been going through a really difficult phase where her husband was really abusive and the same was with her dad who even threatened to get her killed.
Later was found dead at her house, exact cause of the death was not immediately known as police have yet to make a statement on her death but social media was abuzz with rumors that she was forced to commit suicide.
Amna’s death has surely been a very shocking news because we’r not sure whether it’s a murder or she committed suicide out of depression.
