A Pakistani girl named Javeria Khanum reached India to marry her fiance in Sameer Khan based in Kolkatta. Khanum crossed Wagah-Attari on Tuesday where Khan and a few of his family members were present to receive her.
She was welcomed amid the beat of dhol. Her marriage has been fixed with Sameer Khan in January. Javeria Khanum has been granted a visa for 45 days after the previous two rejections. Earlier her visa was rejected twice. Meanwhile, the covid had stalled their marriage for five years.
The couple had a brief interaction with the media in which they informed that the marriage will take place in January next year.
“I have been granted a 45-day visa. I am very happy to be here. Just on arrival, I am already getting so much love here. In the first week of January the marriage will be solemnized,” she said.
“It is a happy ending and a happy beginning,” she said, expressing her happiness at being able to travel to India to get married.
“Everyone back home was very happy. I can’t believe I have got the visa after five years,” she added.
Sameer Khan said he expressed his interest in marrying her after he saw her photo on his mother’s phone.
“This started in May 2018. I had come home from Germany where I was studying. I saw her photo on my mother’s phone and expressed my interest. I told my mother that I want to get married to Javeria,” he said.
“My mother is very happy now that we will be getting married in January next year,” he said.
