Mumbai Model Accuses Husband Of Forcing Her To Convert To Islam

Rashmi, a former model, and Asif tied the knot in the year 2005. The duo have a 7-year-old son together, and seemed like any other happily married couple. But, recently, Rashmi filed an FIR against her husband, and came out to the media claiming that he has been forcing her to convert to Islam, and has been physically abusing her. Rashmi filed a complaint at the Bandra police station, after which she was rushed to the hospital, because she said that Asif had assaulted her before she came to the police station. Rashmi also alleged that her husband hits her on a daily basis, and has been trying to force her to convert to Islam for some time now. Recently, he married another woman, and asked Rashmi to walk out of his life. Asif has also filed a complaint against Rashmi.

According to Rashmi, who is Hindu by birth, when the two got married, Asif had told her that she doesn't need to convert. However, after the wedding, pressure started to build up. It escalated when their son was born back in 2008. Three years ago, Asif allegedly began to have an affair with another woman, and that's when things between him and Rashmi got even worse. The last year and a half has been particularly difficult for her. There has been a lot of physical abuse against her by her husband. The night before the complaint, Asif hit her again and told her to leave. Finally, after all these years, she decided to take the matter to the police. A case of domestic violence has been filed against the husband.

To summarise, here are Rashmi's claims:

1. Forcing her to convert to Islam

2. Making another woman convert to Islam

3. Physical violence

4. Beaten up when she refused to convert

Converting to any religion after marriage is a personal choice, and if there was love between the two before the conflict arose, this is no more than a marriage gone bad. Maybe they had issues because of different religious practices and belief? Maybe something else? It seems a little unfair to jump to conclusions about something as personal as marriage. That said, the physical violence suffered by Rashmi is unforgivable, and Asif should certainly be held accountable for the same.
