After years of turmoil, Pakistani singer Humaira Arshad and Ahmed Butt have finally decided to initiate divorce proceedings.

According to Express News, Humaira married Ahmed, who is an actor by profession, in 2004. In the past, the two have publicly accused each other of fraud among other things.

The two have a son who is currently in Ahmed’s custody. However, Humaira said she would go to court to fight for him.

“Ahmad Butt tortured me in front of people, snatched my money, and kidnapped my child and as a result I had no other choice but to make marriage a public affair,” she said, adding that keeping all these factors in mind, it is highly likely that the 11-year-old love marriage will come to an end.

Humaira said she only organised a press conference in response to her husband’s press briefing in which he had accused her of heinous crimes.

“I never want to come out in public, particularly over a minor family dispute, but my husband accused me of property fraud and threatened my life. That made me step up,” the famed singer told The Express Tribune.

“Ahmed never gave me a single penny, I was running the entire household on my earnings as a singer and Ahmed would ask for money every now and then. It is sad that he has brought our internal affairs to this point.”

    Thats one good thing about Islam , Judaism and Christianity – marriages are contracts till both the partners are happy with each other. But Its a permanent thing in Hinduism . If they are not getting along , then better to part ways and steer clear of bitterness which reflects on children. Recommend

    Ahmed Butt just said in an interview on a news channel that Humaira Arshad used to drink alcohol and watch dirty videos in front of his six year old kid, and that he alone has been taking care of his son for the past two to three years.Recommend

    It is still good for both of your reconsider your decisions and make patch-up to restart your lives with new promises and determination. If the divorce is confirmed then there will be no look-back, except to shed tears on vitiating your lives due to your own egoism.Recommend
