In April, an Indian woman who came to Pakistan to attend the traditional Besakhi festival married a Pakistani man and embraced Islam.

After her marriage, Kiran Bala's name was changed to Amna Bibi, who said that she wanted to tie the knot with Azam, a resident of Hanjarwal, Lahore, and that she didn't want to return to India.

Based on these grounds, Amna requested the authorities to extend her visa so that she could stay in Pakistan. According to the woman, she also received assassination threats following her marriage.

Adnan | 1 year ago | Reply | Recommend Both are desperate. One needs money and another needs a young man for marriage. This is not love. Young man wants to have money early in his life(far better option than looting a bank or risking life in the hands of humans traffickers while the woman wants to have a young partner(which is not available in her own country as easily as it is available in Pakistan). So it is a marriage of sheer convenience in which both of them know each others' desperation.
