Two Hindu couples from Karachi travel to Gujarat to get married
Amid tensions between India and Pakistan following the abrogation of Article 370, two Hindu couples from Karachi traveled to Gujarat earlier this week and tied the knot on Saturday.
The marriages which took place at Rajkot were organized by the Rajkot Maheshwari Samaj. Both the couples belonged to the Maheshwari community.

Youth president of Rajkot Maheshwari Samaj, Bhavesh Maheshwari, said the organization has helped more than 90 couples from Pakistan, mostly from Karachi, to tie the knot and settle down in India. The couples who got married on Saturday too plan to stay on in India, he said.

“Last year we organized marriages of 15 couples from Pakistan, this year two couples came. In most cases both the groom and the bride come from Pakistan,” he said.

 “People from our community are a harassed lot in that country. Hindus find it hard to live in Pakistan. Here we arrange marriages with great pomp and show, like marriages, should be,” he added.
