Brother Pleads Guilty to Beating Harry Potter Actress

LONDON (AP) -The 22-year-old Afshan Azad plays Padma Patil, a classmate of the teenage wizard, in the movie series.

Prosecutor Richard Vardon told Manchester Crown Court that
Azad's elder brother, 28-year-old Ashraf, assaulted her apparently
over her association with a Hindu man. She fled her home after her
brother and father threatened to kill her, Vardon said.

Ashraf Azad pleaded guilty for assault and was granted bailed on
condition he not contact his sister. Sentencing is scheduled for
Jan. 21.

A judge ruled both men were not guilty of threatening to kill
the actress.

    Hmmm... I thought Islam was a religeon of peace and tolerance so I wonder why her Father and Brother would want to kill her.
