Happy ending to Hindu-Muslim love story

Express News Service
Posted online: Tuesday, September 07, 2004 at 1018 hours IST

Ahmedabad, September 6: Hindu boy, Muslim girl fell in love as city burned; 2 years later, they are finally married



Hindu boy, Muslim girl. He saved her from a murderous mob a day after the Godhra carnage, and they fell in love. Two years and much heartache later, the star-crossed couple’s love story has come full circle.

Twenty-four-year-old Sandeep Chauhan and his 18-year-old Muslim neighbour, Shaahin Malek, recently took their wedding vows in a quiet ceremony. The couple, who had to face their parents’ ire as well as contend with being separated — he was jailed after her parents slapped a kidnapping case against him and she was put in a rehabilitation home, got married on July 27.

Incidentally, Shaahin, who has now converted to Hinduism and is known as Suman, has always maintained that she was a major. Her parents, who were against the marriage, have still not reconciled to the wedding though she maintains that ‘‘they’re happy.’’

i'm not sure i understand your thread title, unless you're saying that he is great for having converted her.

i read this story in india today some time ago, when they were still thinking about getting married, against the wishes of their respective families.

this is a good story, one of hope against a background of communal hatred.
