It is a story which states that love can survive in any difficult situation or even in a war. A police officer in Kashmir recently married a girl who lives in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (POK) while the state of Jammu and Kashmir and its police are struggling with protests of many kinds which is disturbing the law and order of the valley.
Sub-Inspector Owais Geelani, who’s father Syed Shabir Gilani, is a retired cop, tied the knot with Faiza Geelani on Tuesday who lives in Muzaffarabad which comes under the Pakistan area. According to reports, their families are related to each other but were separated by the partition of 1947. Their “Nikkah” was already performed in 2014 when the father of the groom, had traveled to Pakistan occupied Kashmir to visit his divided family on the ‘Karavan-e-Aman’ bus service between Srinagar and Muzaffarabad.
