The wife of actor and singer Mohsin Abbas Haider has alleged that her husband physically abused her and is having an extra-marital affair. In a post on Facebook, Fatema Sohail wrote: "I am Fatima. Wife of Mohsin Abbas Haider & here is my story."
Adding pictures of her bruised face and of a first information report (FIR) she has registered against her husband, she said: "On 26th Nov 2018, I caught my husband cheating. When I confronted him, instead of being embarrassed he started Beating me. I was pregnant at that time!
"He pulled me from hair, dragged me on floor, kicked me several times, punched me on face & threw me on the wall. I was brutally beaten by my husband," she added.
In her post, Fatema further alleged that Mohsin Abbas Haider was with another model while she gave birth to their son in May 2019. "I decided to make my marriage work for my own child," she added.
She said that the actor visited her and his son two days after the birth of their son "only to take images and gain some publicity" and that it was "a drama for social appreciation".
A month later, she added, she "went to Mohsin's Home & asked him to take our son's responsibility where he started beating me again! He refused to do anything for his son," she claimed.
"I have no idea how I will raise my child on my own ...but I know Allah will help me," Fatema said, adding that "proves are attached" in reference to how Pakistan's seemingly misogynistic society always asks for proofs whenever women speak of sexual harassment, domestic abuse, and rape.
“I had enough of verbal & physical abuse. I had enough of Divorce threats! Enough! Proves are attached. Truth Told!
"Now I will see you in court Mr Mohsin!” she wrote.
