The entire village is voluntarily contributing towards the expenditure of the wedding which will be attended by nearly 1200 people in an attempt to showcase that nothing has changed.
To rekindle peace between the two communities and decrease the communal tension caused by the alleged lynching episode in Bisada village of Dadri, some members of the Hindu community in the village are arranging the wedding of two Muslim girls.
The family of the two Muslims sisters had decided to conduct the marriage ceremony outside the village, thinking that their in-laws will not come to the village after the incident but elders of the village convinced the family to not shift the venue.
Members of the Hindu community even went to the groom’s house to convince them to come to the village and continue the wedding ceremonies as per the scheduled date. The two daughters of Hakeem, a Muslim villager will get married on Sunday.
Adhering to the request made by the villagers, the policemen near the venue of the wedding will be dressed in simple clothes and not in their uniform.
The family of Mohammad Akhlaq- the Muslim who was lynched, maintained their statement on living in the village peacefully and without any communal strife for years.
