New Delhi: Dubai-based couple Junaid Shaik and Garima got married recently but their marriage was a different one. There was neither nikkah nor pheras.
According to news reported in DC, couple knows each other for a long time. Initially, they thought that their religious difference would come in their way. However, they were happy when their parents agreed for their marriage.
After getting approval from their parents, they decided to marry in different fashion with no nikah and no pheras.
In the video, Junaid Shaikh said, “We’re not doing a nikah, we’re not doing pheras, we are just having a celebration. It’s a celebration of two cultures and two families”.
Its so unfortunate that even today Hindu-Muslim marriage is considered a Taboo in our country. We met Garima & Junaid last year and after meeting them we were so convinced that love is way beyond culture and religion. But what really made us fall even more for them was the fact they are NEITHER having PHERAS or NIKAH. In Junaid's words – "We are just having a celebration, a celebration of 2 cultures and 2 families spending the rest of their lives together :)" #shaikhitwithjosh
