Faryal Makhdoom, wife of Boxer Amir Khan, recently brought to light domestic abuse she was suffering at the hands of her in-laws. She alleged that she was finally opening up to what she had been suffering at the hands of her in-laws because she wanted to help other desi women gain confidence to speak up, as well.
She Snapchatted about her ordeal with her in-laws
And everyone on the internet just had a meltdown
By speaking about it, FaryalMakhdoom may have inspired those who are suffering silently.More so,had she taken legal steps to protect herself

Wouldn't wish what's happened with Faryal Makhdoom to happen to any other woman. Don't know how she stayed silent for so long

And then her sister in-law responded
And the feud just became so much more complicated. With the brother in-law also tweeting about it and all kinds of shade being thrown from all sides.
Yesterday, Daily Mail, reported that there was a “reality show” coming up
It was said that Faryal and Amir were seen with UK TV channel Booom TV’s executives in a now-deleted Instagram on the channel’s official account by The Sun.
And people couldn’t believe such a serious allegation could actually be a publicity stunt
Just read smthing that says the Faryal Makhdoom thing might have been for a desi Keeping up with the Kardashians thing. What the actual fuck

This is what she has to say about rumors that she did it all for a TV show
It all sounded weirdly suspicious because believing Faryal to be her classy self, it didn’t make sense for her to be leveling such a serious allegation and doing it all for “publicity”. Well, she has finally spoken up about it.
I have NO reality show coming up. This isn't a joke, and no HUMAN would put themselves through this drama for a publicity stunt!

We sincerely hope this “tussle” ends and Faryal and Amir have a long and happily married life
