A Muslim man from Madhya Pradesh tied a nuptial knot with his love on Valentine’s Day. The love of his life is a transgender. Though, the groom’s family has not accepted the relationship.
Despite his parents’ disapproval, Junaid Khan from Indore remained committed to Jaya Singh Parmar, who had her complete family backing her.
The two tied the knot in a Hindu ceremony in a temple on February 14. Later, they will perform a “nikaah“, which is a wedding ceremony as per Muslim traditions.
Love bloomed between the two last year and Junaid proposed to Jaya 15 days ago. The couple chose Valentine’s Day – a day that celebrates love worldwide – as the day to get married. Now the only wish of the couple is to be accepted by Junaid’s family.
“I want my family to accept us but even if they don’t, I will stay with her. I love her a lot and I will always keep her happy,” Junaid Khan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Jaya Singh Parmar said that getting married is a big challenge for a transgender person in India as the society hasn’t accepted this till now.
“His parents were against this marriage but he still chose to marry me. I hope they will accept me soon and one day I will get to serve my in-laws,” she said.
