This Woman Was Killed By Her Ex-Husband After She Made A TikTok About Her Divorce

In today’s day and age, the concept of divorce has become quite accepted as a social custom. Even though it goes against the age-old idea of the permanence of marriage, it acts as a way out for many individuals who are living in unhappy and sometimes even abusive unions.

But a majority of communities in South Asia are still not open to the idea of divorces. Divorce is the biggest sin, and a sign of disgrace — but these seem to only apply for the women. This mindset has inevitably led women to suffer in silence, no matter how abusive their marriages become. They have no choice but to believe that this is just how it is. And when a few brave ones dare to speak up, and give others the courage to come out of it — they’re forced to be quiet.

Now, a heinous murder that took place in America has put the spotlight on the negative impacts of such dated beliefs. Sania Khan, a 29 year old, was shot dead by her ex-husband inside her own home. Her ex-husband had traveled from Georgia to her home in Chicago, supposedly with the intent of reconciling. The heartbreaking news has become a piercing reminder of just how dangerous divorces can be for South Asian women.

According to news reports, the ex-husband actually travelled all the way to Sania’s address while carrying a gun with him. So, we doubt he had reconciliation in mind. After shooting Sania, the man then proceeded to shoot himself in her bedroom. Police later found both of their bodies, with Sania dead cold. The man too later died in a hospital.

Sania was open about her divorce, and discussed this ‘taboo’ subject matter in her popular TikTok account. In her videos, she spoke out about the many aspects of divorce taboo that women with South Asian roots have to face to this day. She shared the experiences of how her decision to leave her toxic marriage was followed up with judgment from her family, instead of empathy. But sadly, it was this very attempt at empowering other South Asian women that led to her demise.

Sania seemed like a brave woman willing to break boundaries. Not only did she divorce her husband from an unhappy marriage, she took the separation as an opportunity to live life on her own terms. She was apparently a full-time photographer who travelled the world for her work. Numerous South Asian women showed their love and appreciation in her videos’ comments for giving them hope of a better reality.

She was a hope for many, and people saw themselves in her. The sweet soul wanted no other woman to experience what she had — constantly being open about her experiences. It’s shattering to see this pure, loving human get robbed of her life, just because of one person who couldn’t control his anger.

Although this incident happened all the way on the other side of the globe, it highlights how dangerous these outdated beliefs about marriage can actually be. In Sania’s case, speaking out against the pointless social pressures and stigma she faced as a divorcee actually led to her death. The case should make us question examples of such beliefs repeating in our own society as well.If you liked this article, Follow us on Facebook for more and join our community on Reddit!
