Texas man camps outside home to protest divorce

Sixty-nine-year-old Texas resident Sharafat Khan has taken to living outside in the yard of the million-dollar Seabrook home he once shared with his former spouse, Zain Khan, after she divorced him due to his emotionally and physically abusive tendencies.

According to Sharafat, his goal in camping beneath the palm trees is to protest the divorce. He told reporters that he hoped to shame his wife into letting him come home. He also stated that he hoped his neighbors would take up his cause and help him in shaming her, saying, “Everybody will ask her, put her down, let her know what [she’s] doing to her husband.”

Sharafat apparently has a history of abuse, both verbal and physical, and records show his former wife has made attempts over the years to seek protection from him.
