Bhopal: At a time when religious conversion or so called ‘Ghar Wapsi’ programme is carried out by the Sangh Parivar, which had created a raging controversy in the country, here is a heart-touching story of a family where a Muslim couple performed the marriage of a Hindu girl.

Nadeem Akhtar and his wife Haseen Parvez performed the marriage of their daughter, Sharda according to Hindu tradition, culture and belief on the premises of Ramjanki temple.

As reported in MailToday, Sharda was only 7 years old when she was abandoned at the Barkheda railway station in 2000. At that time, she was sent to “Nav Prabhat Samaj Kalyan Samiti” a shelter home, run by a Muslim community based in Goharganj of Raisen district in the state.

She joined the family of Akhtar in Bhopal at the age of 15 where she studied till Class VIII and completed a course in beautician to run a beauty parlour.

With few ornaments and items of regular use, Sharda tied the knot with a boy of her community hailing from Ambai village of Goharganj tehsil in Raisen district.

On Saturday, with Hindu rituals and chants of Vedic mantras along with the blessing of guests and relatives of Akhtar and his wife, the new couple entered into wedlock.

“Humanity is the best religion of humankind. We allowed Sharda (23), the bride, to follow her religion,” Parvez told media persons after the happy ceremony.
