EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: American woman shares her love story that brought her to Pakistan to marry Sialkot student
Maria Helena, 41, arrived in the South Asian country on Thursday to tie the knot with 21-year-old Kashif.
In an exclusive interview with Daily Pakistan just before their Nikkah in Kashif’s native town of Raipur, the couple shared their love story that started on Instagram some 10 months ago.
“I am just so happy that I have no words,” said Helena, who has just embraced Islam after listening to Dr Zakir Naik’s lectures.
“I’d be happy to live wherever Kashif will keep me,” she told Daily Pakistan.
Kashif, a shy B.Com student, said he is teaching Maria how to pray.
The couple, who were flanked by the groom’ friends, plan to stay in the country for some time.
When asked how many children she would like to have with Kashif, the veterinary doctor replied, “It’s up to God.”
At the end of the video, Helena who is a drummer can also be seen singing a Punjabi song for her future husband.
Raipur, the hometown of Pakistan’s star cricketer Shoaib Malik, is a small village near Kingra, Sialkot.
