A Chilling incident occurred in Edinburgh, Scotland, where an abusive husband led his wife, a young lawyer, to her death. Fawziyah Javed was 17 weeks pregnant when she was shoved off Arthur’s Seat, a Scottish landmark, by her controlling husband Kashif Anwar.
Fawziyah had made the decision to leave Anwar, as she had been a victim of domestic abuse for months. After being pushed, Fawziyah fell 50ft to her death, along with her unborn child, on September 2, 2021.
Before passing away, Fawziyah revealed that her husband was responsible for pushing her, stating, “Don’t let my husband near me, he pushed me.”
She had also reported abuse to the police before her death, and her testimony was used to expose her husband’s lies during the trial. Anwar was found guilty by a jury at Edinburgh’s High Court of murdering Ms. Javed and sentenced to 20 years in prison.
The court heard that Anwar was extremely violent towards Fawziyah, and his mother-in-law set up a text code to alert the police. Fawziyah’s mother instructed her daughter to text her the secret code “I like cream cakes” if she needed help because Anwar monitored her calls and texts.
The mother also revealed that Anwar stole £12,000 from her daughter’s bank account while she was sleeping, and Fawziyah wanted out of the marriage just weeks after the wedding.
Fawziyah’s family spoke outside the High Court in Edinburgh, saying, “Our pain and grief are immeasurable and on an unimaginable scale. There will never be closure or justice for us.
We have had our lives ripped apart, and Fawziyah is no longer with us. The effects of this tragedy, what we have gone through, and are going through, will be with us till our last breath.”
The incident highlights the issue of domestic abuse and the importance of supporting victims. The bravery of Fawziyah in reporting the crime helped convict her husband of her murder, said David Green, Scotland’s procurator fiscal for homicide and major crime.
Fawziyah’s family continues to deal with the devastating loss of their loved one and the unborn child.
The incident is a stark reminder of the devastating impact of domestic violence and the importance of taking it seriously. It is important to create a safe environment for victims to come forward and report abuse without fear.
The tragedy of Fawziyah’s death should serve as a call for everyone to take action against domestic violence and work towards ending it.
