Faryal Makhdoom, wife of Amir Khan, has continued her onslaught on her in-laws and has claimed she was bullied by them for being a ‘bad Muslim’ because she exposed her skin.
The 25-year-old claims she became a victim to physical and mental bullying by her “controlling” in-laws after she married Khan in New York in 2013.
Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, she claimed her in-laws suggested to Amir Khan that she should wake up everyday at 8am and make breakfast for the whole family.
She added. “What a cheap and humiliating thing to suggest. They were basically saying that’s all a daughter-in-law is good for.”
“I never felt I could do anything right. I was bullied physically and mentally.
“One day I said, ‘Enough of this s***, I’m going to speak up. I’ve had it for three years and that’s enough’.’
She continued to rip into the Khan family by claiming they saw her as a bad Muslim for routinely showing her skin on Instagram and Facebook posts.
She says: “It was a big culture shock being an American in this northern town.
“There, they think you are a bad Muslim if you show a bit of skin. I felt like I didn’t fit in.”
She also spoke of her clash with Amir’s siblings claiming they had slammed doors on her, thrown remote controls at her and removed her from family photographs because they disagreed with her ‘modern’ lifestyle.
Rumours have also been circulating that Amir and Faryal may move to New York permanently because of the tensions in the family.
