MURIDKE: An 85-year-old man who said “there are no age restrictions to fall in love” ended up in hospital on Wednesday after marrying a 20-year-old.

Resident of Muridke, Muhammad Anwar recently celebrated his third marriage with 20-year-old, Farwa.

Anwar and Farwa's marriage celebrations did not last long as after hearing of Anwar's third marriage, his sons and grandchildren arrived at his residence and beat-up the newly-wed couple.

Anwar and Farwa were shifted to a nearby hospital where his wife had to get nine stitches on her head.

Meanwhile, Inspector Nemat Gujjar said the police has begun a search for the attackers.

Agnikul | 11 years ago | Reply Violence against the elderly cannot be condoned even if a civil law had been broken. As it is, the poor guy has not gone against the PPC, the Quran, Fiqh nor Sunnat but is being reviled and beaten because of prejudice
Dr Imran Ahmed | 11 years ago | Reply The young don't have a monopoly on sex or conjugal happiness! This is supposedly a free country and law breakers like the grandsons should be reprimanded not the poor victims of violent crime. I would expect that the 20 year old bride had as much say in her marriage as most 20 year old brides have in Pakistan. If they are married without their consent it is as wrong to marry them with a 16 year old as it is with an 80 year old. Good Lord, the level of debate above!
