"Who gave you the right to torture Uzma Khan."
A video has sparked controversy as it showed actress Uzma Khan and her sister being accused of having an affair with a man named Usman.
However, many social media users have said that the man’s identity was not revealed, indicating that not everything was as it seemed.
In the video, an unseen woman who claims to be the wife of Usman confronts the sisters and accuses them of having an affair with her husband.
The woman can be heard forcing Uzma and Huma to accept that they were having an illicit relationship with Usman.
The leaked video attracted a lot of attention on social media, with the hashtag #UzmaKhan trending. Many people shared their views on the matter.
A lot of social media users have claimed that the unseen woman is actually the daughter of business tycoon Malik Riaz.

It was alleged that the woman forced her way into Uzma’s house and tortured the sisters. Human rights activist Hassaan Niazi said that kerosene oil was spilt onto the sisters and Huma was injured.
Naturally, this resulted in many condemning the unseen woman’s alleged actions, stating that she had no right to do what she did, even if an affair was going on.
One person said: “Who gave you the right to torture Uzma Khan.”
Allegations of violence were further indicated after pictures circulated of Huma’s feet covered in blood.
Hassaan went on to say that Uzma and Huma were physically harassed by the woman and several men who entered the house.
Another video has since appeared on social media, showing the perpetrators forcing their way into the house and breaking several items.

Malik Riaz has since come out and furiously denied the allegations, saying he would be filing defamation cases against those who falsely implicate him.
Uzma Khan, who achieved fame in Jawani Phir Nahi Aani, has now shared her ordeal of being harassed and threatened.
In a social media post, she said: “This is my official statement. Please share and help me in my fight for justice.
“I have been shamed, blackmailed, harassed, been threatened to kill in the past three days.”
“I feel I have nothing to lose now and I have decided to fight the strongest people of Pakistan.
“For me, it is either I get justice or I will be killed but there is no turning back now.
“I am an orphan so you can’t kill my parents. The maximum you can do is kill me.”
She went on to say: “Since you’ve shamed me in front of the whole world anyway. Since I’m a woman and obviously the vulnerable and easy target, carry on but now I will fight till my last drop of blood.”
Uzma said that she has filed a police complaint against the alleged harassers.
“I request Punjab police to register my FIR and conduct my and my sister’s Medical examination (my basic right) before our wounds start to heal. I hope I am as much Pakistani as Malik Riaz.”
