All of India is now under lockdown for 21 days to prevent the rise of Covid-19 cases, but that didn’t come in between a wedding between a woman from Bihar and man from Uttar Pradesh, who got married through video calling.
Sadiya Nasreen and Danish Raza were scheduled to be married on March 23, but the pandemic disrupted their plans with travel restrictions being imposed. But the couple were determined to get married so they went ahead with the ceremony through video conferencing, with a qazi solemnising the wedding in the presence of family members.
In the video that’s going viral, after the couple say “qubool hain” over the video call, relatives are seen hugging each other and saying, “Mubarak ho”. The bride is then brought in front of the screen and the couple sees each other for the first time after their wedding.
Watch the video here:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced Tuesday a complete lockdown across the country for 21 days and said that social distancing was the only option to stay safe during the pandemic. As the number of people affected by the virus crossed 500 in the country, he said, “This is applicable for everyone, including the Prime Minister.”
The central government had also warned of legal action against those violating the lockdown, saying, violators could either face a fine of Rs 1,000 or a jail term of six months if they do not abide by the lockdown orders.
