On Tuesday, a woman from Karachi, Pakistan, called Javeria Khanum, arrived in India to tie the knot with Sameer Khan, a local of Kolkata. The Indian government has granted a 45-day visa to the 21-year-old woman.
She was met by her fiancé Sameer and future father-in-law Ahmed Kamal Khan Yousafzai as she entered into India at the Wagah border, amidst the ‘dhol’ music.
The two made an appearance with the press shortly after Javeria’s arrival in India. We are really grateful for the support of the Indian government. The importance of intentions exceeds that of boundaries, says Sameer.
Javeria plans to apply for a long-term visa after her wedding to Sameer in January 2019.
I have been granted a 45-day visa. I find great delight in being here. I have already been showered with an abundance of love since I arrived. In the first week of January, the marriage will be solemnized, according to Javeria.
“Everyone was ecstatic back home. Perhaps a visa extension of up to five years? “I still can’t believe it,” she said. Writer and activist Maqbool Ahmed Wasi Qadian helped Javeria get the visa to visit India. He has helped a number of Pakistani women get visas.
Like, “This started in May 2018,” Sameer said, when asked when his relationship with Javeria first began. After finishing my degree in Germany, I came back. Being intrigued, I perused my mom’s phone and got her image. I told my parents that Javeria was my intended bride.
His buddies from Germany, including those from the US, Africa, and Spain, among other nations, would reportedly attend his wedding, as he told PTI.
‘Dhol’ was played when Sameer Khan and his family welcomed Khanum at the Attari border just before her January wedding to him.
Khanum reportedly informed the reporters that their plans were put on hold for almost five years because to the COVID-19 pandemic, since her visa had been rejected twice before. This information is according to PTI. I am now in possession of a 45-day visa. I find great delight in being here. I have already been showered with an abundance of love since I arrived. She told reporters that the wedding will take place in the first week of January.
The beginning and the end are both upbeat. Everyone was ecstatic when they returned home. Upon acquiring the visa after five long years, she voiced her surprise, as reported by PTI.
I had returned from my studies in Germany in May of 2018 when it all started. Being intrigued, I perused my mom’s phone and got her image. He told his mom he was going to marry Javeria.
Such high-profile couples or marriages involving foreign nationals have become more common in recent years. Seema Haider crossed into India from Nepal and married Sachin Meena, a man from Noida; this was the beginning of their adventure. The Indian woman Anju went to Pakistan in July to get married to her Facebook friend Nasrullah. Still, it was only recently that she returned to India across the Wagah border.
