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.
