'In the garb of religion, he made mockery of a woman'

February 02, 2009 19:27 IST

The Chand-Fiza real-life soap on Monday saw Fiza attacking her husband former Haryana deputy chief minister Chander Mohan for the first time, accusing him of playing with her sentiments and asked him to come out clean on the "status" of their marriage.

"Chand must come out clean whether he is Chander Mohan or the man who married me after converting into Islam," an agitated Fiza told media persons outside her house, days after he said that he still loved his first wife Seema and their children hinting that his two-month-old marriage to Fiza was on the rocks.

Chander Mohan, 43, who changed his name to Chand Mohammad after converting to Islam, and 37-year-old former Additional Advocate General Anuradha Bali alias Fiza married in November last year drawing the wrath of his family which disowned him.

Chand was also sacked as Deputy Chief Minister.

"Let him come clean," Fiza said and claimed that there was threat to her life.

"He (Chand) was able to convince me that he was in love with me and will always love me," she said.

"Now I feel that he (Chand) has played with my sentiments and in the garb of religion he has made mockery of a woman," she said, asserting that she would adopt all possible means in her "battle" against him.

She, however, refrained from divulging whether she will take any legal action against Chand.

Fiza had created a stir last week by claiming that Chand was abducted at the behest of his family but it was denied within hours by him. Chand said he had gone on his own and has not returned to Fiza since Jan 28 but she has been persistently claiming he was under pressure from his family.

"I have lost everything for Chand," Fiza said adding that "if he had played with my sentiments than he will have to face the consequences."

A day after Chand left, Fiza was rushed to a hospital in a semi-conscious state following an overdose of sleeping pills and blood pressure tablets. She was arrested for allegedly attempting suicide but was released on bail.

"Nobody knows whether Fiza will be alive or not in days ahead," Fiza said today while claiming that she was continuously receiving "threatening SMSs" on her cell phone from close associates of husband's relatives.

"Everything happened so suddenly with me that I even don't know what is my status now."

She claimed that Chand had wooed and "convinced" her to marry him. Fiza read out SMSs before the media, purportedly sent by Chand to her from 2006 to 2008 expressing his love for her.

Fiza said she had not received any offer for the rights of her story but wanted that a film should be made on her to "highlight the plight of a woman".

"I am ready to share my experiences," she said.

Taking a dig at Seema, the first wife of Chand, Fiza asked why she was silent over the issue.

She also lashed out at the reported statement of Chand's family members that their doors were closed for him after he was disowned by his father. "If it is so then why they are giving shelter to him."

Fiza claimed that she was not after Chand's money or property. "Has it been the case I would have married him when he became the deputy chief minister two years ago," she said.
