Husband 'kicks out' wife from house over ‘fake’ Facebook ID

Published: March 27, 2017

LAHORE: A woman has filed a petition in a district and sessions court, seeking FIR against a person allegedly operating a Facebook ID in her name.

Shagufta Rani submitted in court on Monday that her husband not only kicked her out from his house but is thinking of separation as well after he found out about the ‘fake’ ID.

Rani said she is using the social media platform since long, and the accused, Raja Khalil, downloaded her photos from her original ID, and created another account with her name and display picture.

According to the petitioner, she found out about the fake ID after Khalil sent her brother a friend request. She claimed that the accused sent friend requests to many people to humiliate her.

Rani said the action not only ruined her marriage life but she had to face a lot of humiliation as well. She said she approached the authorities concerned but to no avail.

She requested the court to direct the FIA director to register an FIR against the accused. The court has sought comments from the FIA by April 5.

    It’s totally convoluted. It seems like a lot of people with heads bobbing from side to side. To a logical western person it would seem: A woman who wanted her own separate identity from her overbearing Muslim husband got another secret account without her husband knowing about it, and he got mad when he found out and tried to kick her out. Right? NO! That makes too much sense. So this is what really happened: somebody else (random anonymous person) used the woman’s picture and name and created a fake account. The husband should be outraged and wanting to persecute the fraudster. But no, he wants to kick his wife out, for the injustice that she suffered. You all understand that somehow! But it makes no sense! Why? Hmmpf!Recommend

    Facebook and social media news are quite in these days on Pakistani media. There is a reason for this media engineering. Recommend
