Actor Feroze Khan has issued a statement after his ex-wife of four years, Syeda Aliza Sultan, submitted medical reports and pictures of alleged physical abuse to the court as evidence.
The former couple announced last month that they have parted ways, with Aliza accusing the award-winning actor of subjecting her to severe physical and emotional abuse. While previously, Feroze didn’t respond to Aliza’s abuse accusations, he has now issued a statement after the aforementioned documents and pictures went viral on social media.
‘I, Feroze Khan, vehemently deny any and all baseless, malicious and untruthful allegations which have been levelled against me and are circulating on the social media rumour mill,” he shared in an Instagram story. “These allegations have no basis in truth or reality.”
He added that he will be pursuing the matter legally and shared, “I fully intend to institute legal proceedings against the perpetrators of these actions and I have instructed my legal team accordingly.”
Feroze further shared, “I would categorically like to state that I have always followed the la in it’s true letter and spirit and have never knowingly hurt another human being. I very strongly believe in all human rights of every human inhabiting planet earth.”
Feroze Khan issues statement
Taking to social media, last month the Habs star shared his own two cents Aliza’s statement earlier. “As a law-abiding citizen of Pakistan, I have full confidence in the justice of the court,” Feroze wrote. “Our divorce was finalised on September 3, 2022, after which I filed a family law case asking custody of and visitation rights pertaining to my children Sultan and Fatima in the eighth family judge district, East Karachi on September 19, 2022.”
He went on to add, “Today, on September 21, 2022, the Court heard both parties and allowed me to spend time with my children Sultan and Fatima for half an hour in his [the judge’s] presence. The Court then adjourned the matter till October 1, 2022, on which date it will resume further proceedings related to visitation rights whereby I can continue to meet my children.”
Feroze, while addressing his ex-wife, shared that he will extend his support and respect as the mother of his children. “As concerns my ex-wife, I shall extend her my respect and support as she is the mother of my children. I am afraid I am not in a position to further discuss this matter as the case is pending before the Court,” the Aye Musht-e-Khaak actor concluded.
Aliza opens up about ‘abusive marriage’
Before the Khaani actor issued a statement, his wife, Aliza, took to social media and shared she had to “endure infidelity, blackmail and degradation” by Feroze.
“Our marriage of four years was an utter chaos,” Aliza said in a statement. “In addition to continuous physical and psychological violence during this period, I had to endure infidelity, blackmail and degradation at my husband’s hands.” She added that after careful consideration, she has “reached the sad conclusion that I cannot spend my whole life in this horrific manner.”
Aliza went on to comment, “The welfare and wellbeing of my children have played a significant role in this decision. I do not want them to grow up in a toxic, unhealthy and violent household. I am afraid that their mental development and approach to life would be negatively impacted by exposure to a such hostile environment.”
Further elaborating, she shared, “No kid should ever have to grow up feeling violence to be a normal part of relationships. I would rather teach them that no wounds are too deep to be healed, no scars too shameful to be concealed at the cost of one’s safety.”
