Mysuru, Apr 18: The Nikah and other wedding rituals of the Hindu-Muslim couple from Mandya, whose alliance was opposed by the Hindutva extremists, were held peacefully amidst tight security in spite of threats from the anti-social elements on Sunday.

The wedding reception was held in a grand manner at a convention hall in Mysuru on Sunday evening amid tight police security. There was no untoward incident during the ceremony. Hundreds of relatives and well-wishers prayed for the eternal bond between Shakeel Ahmed and Ashita alias Shaista Sultana, whose 12 years of love culminated in wedding.

The couple, both MBA graduates, took part in bale shastra', the pre-wedding bangle ritual, at the bride's house in Mandya on Saturday. The same day, the couple and their families left for Mysuru. Ashitha and her family stayed with a relative in the City of Palaces.

It's unclear when and where the Nikah (the Muslim ceremony which entails the groom making an offer and the bride accepting it) was held.

The police escorted members of both the families to the venue of the reception, Taj Convention Hall in Bannimantap locality. The newly-married couple reached the venue at 7.20 pm in separate vehicles and the reception began 10 minutes later.

The reception was attended by dignitaries like writer K S Bhagwan, journalist Gowri Lankesh, former minister M S Athmananda, women's rights activist K S Vimala and former MLA G B Shivakumar. JD(S) MLA B Z Zameer Ahmed Khan is said to have visited the couple in Mandya and wished them.

Speaking to reporters, Shivakumar described the marriage as special. “Generational and cultural progress and education have brought about this change. The parents consented to the marriage. I have come here to wish the couple,” he said.

Though no protests were held against the marriage, entry into the marriage hall was restricted due to security reasons.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) HT Shekar said that the marriage was held peacefully. “We provided adequate security,” he said, adding that the marriage ceremony was conducted without any disruption.

It is stupidity to call it hindu-muslim marriage as the girl converted to Islam a few days back from the marriage. She has the right to do whatever she wants but conversions as condition for marriage does not account for true love. Only hypocrites can justify conversion and can call it love triumph. It is a shame that a person has to change religion for marriage and lovers in interreligious religions (be it of any religion) should be able to defend faith of each others that for me is true love. Fanatics use Indian laws to marry girls of other religions and show their religious hypocricy by making the girl to convert for marriage which for me is a cheap ideology. Progressive laws are being used by bigots to show their true color. Which is a shame, in any religions if a partner is made to change religion the party who forces other to change religion is cheap and fanatic. Not a secular trend..

Wishing the couple a happy married life...I have only one query..In an inter-religious marriage such as this one...the woman has to compulsorily convert to Isalm is it ?? What is the Isalmic law inthis regards...Wat if te booy ocnverts to Hinduism through arya Samaj ?
I have heard of several inter-religious marriages where there is no conversion---husband hindu/mother catholic etc...Why conversion here ?

Dear Prakash, you are like a frog in the well and have no knowledge about islam and muslims. dont read books written by prabhakar b hat / Mutalik / Karnik etc. Read books written by authenticated people. Half knowledge is not good for health. Talk to Mr. Jain, a shiv sena activist who was against Muslims / Islams till recently and have reverted to Islam for the reason he changed his belief. May be you will get correct answer to your question. dont judge on yourself. dont trust the hate mongers. May God bless you with right way of thinking and keep you on right path.

Prakash...in your religion why lower cast girl or boy cant marry upper cast girl or boy...as per Islam if a boy wants to marry a Hindu girl, he can but she has to convert to Islam religion....because in Hinduism, Hindus pray 100's of gods which is forbidden in Islam....and children born out of that marriage will follow mother's tradition or religion...to avoid that she should convert to Islam...one thing is nobody can force anyone to marry to someone...here girl and boy loved each other and married...she willingly converted to Islam.

hIjab, burka will give security and safety to girls while they are venturing outside of their home....you know most of rapes and molestation of girls happening around India....reason behind it is girls dont cover their body parts properly, whereas burkha and hijab will protect them from it....

Muslims can marry up to 4 girls....it is not compulsory but it is a provision...if you can't make justification and satisfy their requirements then you are not eligible for it at all....

@Prakash

Coz Muslim Girls are not allowed to marry the disbelievers or the polytheists as per Shariah law. Neither is a Muslim man allowed to marry a Disbeliever/Polytheist. The only option here is the man or the woman must revert to Islam for

It is surprising to note the greetings from the readers to the so called Muslim boy.... Do not forget this boy was in love with the non muslim girl since 12 years, just imagine the amount of SIN he has earned by having contacts with the girl without marriage..... we are nothing but hypocrites to greet the so called muslim boy....

Dear Prakash R...

One reason is U guys are worshiping the Man made gods. U make saints as gods, u make idols as gods, u make animals as gods, u make MONKEYs as God, U make URINE as God's blessing...

SICK... When Ur own VEDA says NA TASYA PRATIMA ASTI... Y dont U use your intellect and find out WHO is GOD and who is WORTHY of WORSHIP...
U will get all the answers if U start using your intellect honestly on recognising our CREATOR who created U & ME and all that exists.

Question: Why not Muslim girls marry other religion boys?

Prakash R

Monday, 18 Apr 2016

The religion should not poke its nose in any way. If the boy was really brave, he should have suggested for a non-religious marriage. In the boy's religion, there is no freedom for women, men can marry 4 wives, pray 5 times a day. In each and everything, religion comes first, burkha, hijab are symbols of slavery. She does not know that she is getting into an unknown jail...
People of religion bring the name of non-existing god unnecessarily.. that's the problem, otherwise, it is ok..

India requires bold women like Rifqa Bary, Wafa Sultan, Nonie Darwish. Malaika Arrora is no more Khan now. Hrithik Roshan is free from the bondage of her wife's religion. Non-Muslim Girls are unaware of divorces in Islam. Innocent girls are deceived.

When People read the QURAN...
They will realize the TRUTH & DIVINE CONNECTION.
The TRUTH about who is worthy of WORSHIP.
When U know that then
U will depend on the one who CREATED us all.
When U depend, U are in the safe hands of the CREATOR, unless it is decreed by the CREATOR.
U will come to know who is behind EVIL
U will come to know what is cheddi agenda.
U will come to know previous nations who ruled with Evil agenda are PERISHED.
U will come to know the ARROGANT leaders who made themselves GOD and when the time of death came, they realised they are not GODs .
U will come to know the ARROGANT who will never be satisfied even if they have mountains of Gold in their possession.... They are still GREEDY. (We see many of them today)
U will come to know the oppressor like Pharoah, Haman, Abu jahl.. how their life came to end. (Read QURAN).
U will come to know How the CREATOR will assist those who have FAITH in HIM..

DEAR all.... Read QURAN, U will understand What is LIFE, What is the PURPOSE of LIFE. NO need any babas in between.. U & Ur maker...
LOOK for this, U will be successful.

New Delhi, Oct 19: Addressing the centenary convocation of the University of Mysore on Monday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi asserted that the institution was an amalgamation of the rich education system of ancient India and the aspirations of the future.

"The University of Mysore is the centre of the rich education system of ancient India on one hand and the aspirations and capacity of future India on the other. This university has realised the vision and resolutions of "Rajarshi" Nalvadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar and M Visvesvaraya Ji," the Prime Minister said, while virtually addressing the centenary convocation of the University of Mysore.

"Education (Shiksha) and initiation (Diksha) are considered as two important stages of youth here. This has been a tradition for thousands of years. When we talk of initiation, it is not just an opportunity to get a degree. Today's day inspires us to make new resolutions for the next stage of life," he added.

Addressing the students on the occasion, PM Modi also remembered Bharat Ratna Dr Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan who was attached with the university. "Today, your teachers and professors are also handing over the nation and society's responsibility to you, along with your degrees."

"Now you are moving from a formal university campus to the big campus of real life. This will be such a campus where, along with the degree, your applicability of the knowledge that you have acquired will work," he added.

The University of Mysore was established in 1916, first in Karnataka as well as the sixth in the country.

The Karnataka governor marked his virtual presence on the occasion, along with other dignitaries like the members of the syndicate and academic council, MPs, MLAs, MLCs, statutory officers and district officers, besides students and parents.

Udupi, Oct 19: The Udupi district police have filed a charge-sheet against two siblings from Moodbidri accusing them of hacking the social media account of NRI Harish Bangera and posting provocative posts from it.

Harish Bangera, 33, from Beejadi in Kundapur taluk of Udupi district was jailed in Saudi Arabia since December 2019 for insulting religious sentiments and abusing the Saudi royal family through Facebook. Harish was an AC mechanic working in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Before his arrest by Saudi police, Harish Bangera had confessed to his crime and posted a video on social media apologising for his act. He also had promised that he would never commit the same mistake again. The confession and apology video is still available on social media platforms.

However, Harish’s wife Suman had claimed that her husband is innocent, and that the posts on Facebook were uploaded by others hacking his account. She had suspected foul play in her husband’s arrest in Saudi.

Based on her complaint, the Udupi police had arrested Abdul Uais and Abdul Tuves, siblings from Moodbidri in Dakshina Kannada district.

Udupi superintendent of police N Vishnuvardhana said that they recently filed a charge-sheet in connection with the arrests made. Meanwhile, they have also submitted a report to the ministry of external affairs in this regard.

Bengaluru, Oct 21: The continuing thundershowers left many roads waterlogged through Tuesday night, even as the weather bureau predicted that the rains would pound the city until Friday.

As per the data from Karnataka State Natural Disaster Monitoring Centre (KSNDMC), areas in western and southern Bengaluru received between 11 mm and 71.5 mm of rainfall.

Officials in the BBMP control room said there were no complaints of tree fall but waterlogging was reported from Nayandahalli, Kengeri, Agara, Halasuru, Sivananda circle, Mehkri Circle and several other areas. At the Sivananda Circle underpass, BBMP officials had to rush to clear the water that choked up traffic for a long time.

Basavanagudi, Jayanagar, BTM Layout, Koramangala, Sampangi Ramanagar, Rajajinagar, Malleswaram, Manjunath Nagar, Dasarahalli, Hebbal, RT Nagar, Yelahanka and other areas received heavy rains.

While the KSNDMC forecast heavy rainfall in the BBMP area for the next two days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a yellow alert for the city.

A mini-truck got stuck in a manhole on Mysuru Road, leading to a lengthy traffic jam. Police arrived at the spot and restored vehicular movement.

Residents of Mallattahalli whose houses were flooded in the rains two days ago relived the nightmare once again on Tuesday.
