Social organization conducts marriage ceremony of 40 underprivileged couples

A social organization facilitated the wedding ceremonies of at least 40 couples coming from marginalized families from different parts of Kashmir Valley.

The marriage ceremony was organized by Jammu and Kashmir Jaafria Council Budgam at Amar Singh Club Srinagar.

The relatives and friends of the couples were also present on the occasion.

“There were 40 couples in today’s ceremony. Females were from underprivileged sections of society whose families were unable to bear the expenses of the marriages of their loved ones. By the grace of the Almighty, the function was held smoothly and we hope these couples will now lead a respectable life,” Chairman Jaffria Council, Haji Musadiq Hussain told reporters.

He said since 2015, the Council has arranged marriages of hundreds of marginalized women in Kashmir. “In 2015, we conducted marriages of 38 poor girls, 70 in 2016, 75 in 2017, 105 in 2018, 83 in 2019,” he said. [KNT]
