Hindu Muslim Unity: Mass Marriages of Hindu and Muslim couples

RAJKOT: The mass marriage of 81 couples from Hindu and Muslim communities in Junagadh on Sunday was a unique occasion to be cherished. Over the years, this initiative has helped the two communities to narrow down their differences, and is a great example of communal harmony in Saurashtra.

“We have been organising these mass marriages for the past five years. Every year, about 90 couples participate in this program, which is a great example of communal harmony. Last year, the scion of former Nawab of Junagadh sent us a letter from Karachi congratulating us for keeping the princely state’s culture alive.”
