India speaks: Hindu neighbours raise money for poor Muslim girl's wedding
Tuesday, 25th May 2010
It was more than a wedding since it also symbolised celebration of unity and communal harmony when Hindus in an Uttar Pradesh village raised money for a poor Muslim girl's marriage.

Hindus in Sunhera village in Baghpat district, some 400 km from here, performed the marriage Sunday. They are proud of their action, which they say will go a long way in fostering relations between the two communities.

Asma, 21, lost her father Aziz in a road accident when she was six years old. Her mother Mehrunissa, somehow managed to take care of her daughter by doing menial jobs. But her limited resources were not enough to fulfil her husband's last wish -- Asma's wedding which he hoped would be conducted with fanfare.
