“If the Indian authorities send me back I’ll commit suicide, but I won’t leave my husband,” warned Shabnam.

Shabnam, married two years ago after falling in love with Sajjad during his visit to Gujranwalla, is requesting for an Indian citizenship.

Sajjad on his return to his home in border district of Budal could not bring his wife along. Shabnam could manage an Indian visa to meet her husband after a long struggle.

She now wants to permanently stay back with her husband along with their infant son who is also a Pakistan born.

Sajjad Ahmed’s family members also want Shabnam to permanently stay back inndia.

Sajjad’s brother Khusheed Ahmed said, ” We want that she should stay in India. We want Indian government to grant her Indian citizenship and she should stay here in India.”

A senior state official is reported to have said that the government would look into the legalities of the matter. (ANI)
