Indian Woman Returning Home After Marrying Pakistani

A 34-year-old Indian woman, who went to a remote village in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to marry her Facebook friend, will soon return to India after receiving clearance from the Pakistan government, according to her husband.

In August, Pakistan extended Anju’s visa for one year. She had converted to Islam and married Nasrullah, which led to her name being changed to Fatima.

“We are waiting for the NOC (No-Objection Certificate) from the interior ministry in Islamabad, for which we have already applied. The NOC process takes some time to complete,” said Anju’s Pakistani husband to PTI.

Anju, aged 34, has two children with her Indian husband, Arvind Kumar. She legally entered Pakistan on July 21 and traveled to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Upper Dir district, where she reportedly married 29-year-old science graduate Nasrullah in a local court.

Anju, who is from the western Indian state of Rajasthan, and Nasrullah’s cross-border love story garnered attention in both India and Pakistan. Anju’s husband, Arvind Kumar, claimed that she initially traveled to Pakistan under the pretense of meeting a friend in Jaipur.

In a video, Anju expressed feeling safe in Pakistan and explained that her journey was well-planned and legal. She stated, “I want to give this message to all that I have come here [Pakistan] legally and with planning, as it was not a sudden decision. I am safe here.”

Additionally, a “pre-wedding” video of Anju and Nasrullah emerged online, showing them posing in the mountains of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. Following the video, Anju’s father, Gaya Prasad, cut ties with her.
