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.
Happy married life may Allah fullfil all your dream and I pray all your dream come true .. I pray Allah to give you more strength to fight this saffron menace...!!!!
Wish you Happy married life and wish you happy and prosperous married life.
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....
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.
Dear Prakash Answer :bcz Muslim Girl believe in Allah & they want to die as Muslim .they dont want to go to hell forever Mr prakash i invite you to
Islam Believe in One god and Prophet muhmmed(saw) is the Messenger of Allah so Accept islam it will benefit in both world. you will have no fear in hearafter May allah guide us all Ameen
Question: Why not Muslim girls marry other religion boys?
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..
Shaistha weds Shakeel.....how the hell is this a Hindu- Muslim wedding ??
The heading should read
\Girl discards Hinduism and embraces Islam to get married to the love of her life \""

She is a well educated girl. The Boy seems promising too. They will take very good care of eachother and lead a happy life , InShaAllah!
Allah gives her hidayah, Alhamdulillah. We pray to Allah to give her knowledge and keep her steadfast upon Islam.
Qareeb itna raho ke rishtey mei pyar rahe,
Door bhi itna raho ke aane ka intezar rahe,
rakho ummed rishtaon ke darmiyan itni,
Ke toot jaaye ummeed magar rishtey BARQARAAR rahen.
Wish you a very very very happy married and contended life.
The Prophet (SAW) said A Women May be married for four Reason for her property, her status, her Beauty and her Religion ;so try to get Religious, May you Blessed But Nowadays some Men they choose one who has no Imaan .Thats why it will become a big Fitnah for this ummah May Allah guide us
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.
Tight Slap to chaddis..
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.
Wish you happy married life!
All the best for the new couple. live your life happily
Haati Chale Bazar kutte Bokhe Hazaar...!
Both families are really great. Triumph of humanity
Am really proud of you Ashita. Finally love defeated hatred. This wedding was a blend of Hindu Muslim culture. This wedding not only united couples from two different families but also united families from two different religions and crushed communalism.
What was the need of conversion and change of name if the love was genuine?
Wish You a Happy Wedding Gud Luck For Your Future..Really This is an Achievement..Well Done..
baarakallahu lakum wa baraka alaikum wa jamaha bainakumaa fil kair
