Humaima Malik opened up about the ordeal of domestic violence in her latest social media post. Amid Mohsin Abbas Haider’s domestic violence fiasco, Malik revealed her own appalling story of struggling in an abusive marriage.

Married at a young age, Malik recalled she lacked the courage to counter the abusers, and now she is regretful for not bringing the culprits towards justice.

“Although it has been years, all those years and the pain-filled days and nights still haunt me. I was only a 19-20-year-old miserable young girl. I couldn’t even share my screaming wounds with my family,” she said.

She went on to share: “I am ashamed of myself today that I didn’t do anything for myself 3 years of an abusive marriage, 7 years of another abusive relationship and it repeated [sic].”

“While I was working making a good life for myself and my entire family I have been threatened, abused and beaten to death not once but many times, I am not scared anymore I am now shameful of my silence [sic],” she further added.

Actress Humaima Malik, however, did not name her abusers in her social media post. Producer Ammar Hikmat endorsed Humaima’s painstaking account of domestic abuse and cheered the actress for rising above her dreadful experiences in life.

“You are a very brave woman, I witnessed it firsthand and I am glad you pulled yourself out of it,” wrote Hikmat on her Instagram post.

Humaima Malik is amongst the many celebrities of Pakistan’s entertainment industry who have expressed solidarity with Fatema Sohail, wife of Mohsin Abbas Haider.

The incident of vile domestic violence is high in Pakistan and, unfortunately, is prevalent in every rank of society.

Fatema Sohail in her press conference earlier this week shed light on how several women, financially dependent upon their spouse, continue to bear domestic violence.

She stated that since her assertions against her husband, Mohsin Abbas Haider, she has received numerous calls from women sharing their plight of sustaining abusive marriages.
