On the island that used to be Great Britain, Muslim actress Afshan Azad was physically assaulted by her Muslim brother and father, who prosecutors believe threatened to “honor” kill her for dating a Hindu. Trial has adjourned until July 12, and her assailants, having pinky-sworn not to carry out their planned murder at her home until after they’ve stood trial or served their puny sentence for the threat if convicted, are out on bail until July 12. Meanwhile, this being formerly Great Britain, Azad herself and her Hindu boyfriend are forbidden to own any item that could possibly prove helpful in defending themselves or each other should either or both of her assailants decide to break their promise – or, for that matter, encounter her anywhere other than her home. What could possibly go wrong?
