LAHORE – A blind girl from the United States has travelled to Pakistan to marry a visually impaired cricketer in Bahawalpur, a local TV channel reported on Friday.

Brittney Montgomery and Mujeebur Rehman, who first met on Facebook, tied the knot in the Punjab city on Thursday a day after the US national arrived in the South Asian country, according to Express News. The groom is partially blind while his bride is completely blind.

According to the report, Brittney embraced Islam two years ago after befriending Mujeeb on the popular social messaging site.

According to Pakistan Blind Council’s spokesperson, the Mujeebur Rehman is a fast bowler and has played key roles in several victories for the Bahawalpur Blind Cricket Team.

Maria also embraced Islam before formally entering her marital life.

Also this month, another American woman Helena had arrived in Pakistan to tie the knot with the love of her life, a youngster hailing from Sialkot named Kashif.
