Ahmad Fishawi accused of committing adultery
Egyptian interior designer Hind Hinawi’s lawyer has announced that a lawsuit will be filed against Egyptian actor Ahmad Fishawi accusing him of adultery after he had confessed in an official police report. The lawsuit will be added to the many filed against Ahmad by Hind, who waits a family court verdict on May 26, 2005 to prove that Ahmad is the biological father of her daughter Lina based on DNA results.
Recently, Ahmad made a shocking revelation on the show “Al Bait Baitak” regarding the nature of his relationship with Hind, admitting having an illicit affair with Hind, but stressed that they never married in secrecy.
Ahmad revealed that there might be a chance that Hind’s child is his, due to the fact that the affair with Hind was very intimate. Ahmad added that he has been on a guilt trip the entire time for behaiving in such a matter that is against all the teaching of Islam and has requested the consultation of an Islamic preacher to guide him and advise him on what to do.
The case against Fishwai has gone international, with the British and American press taking a keen interest in the case considering it a liberal step taken by Egyptian society. Recently, the London newspaper The Guardian had published an article titled “A New Egypt Waiting to be Born” considering the candidness of a single mother like Hind Al Hinawi, who is not married, in a conservative society like Egypt, and the support she has received from different people reflects the change that Egyptian society is going through.
The paper also noted that the scandal Ahmad is involved in claiming that he is not the father of Hind’s child has led to a stoppage of his religious program. It was added that everyone in Egypt is anxiously awaiting the results of the DNA tests, which the family court demanded of Ahmad, Hind and the child to undergo, that will prove the fatherhood of the child.
