Assistant Commissioner Bannu Usman Ashraf and Dr. Natasha Rizwan married a few days ago and shocked everyone with their unusual Walima.
The internet is amazed at their unusual but heartwarming wedding ceremony.
The newlyweds chose to spend the day with street children, giving them a sense of purpose and feeding them the best dishes they would’ve ever imagined.
The couple’s unusual Walima celebration was an instant hit with the public, with numerous social media users sharing a video of it and sending love and thanks to the couple for their humble celebration.
The couple believes that modest weddings should be the norm and that unnecessary expenses should be avoided.
According to Assistant Commissioner Usman Ashraf, the rest of their marriage’s events were regular events. They chose an alternative for Walima since they knew it would be a much bigger event – and also the saner decision due to the rising threat of Covid’s fourth wave.
AC Usman Ashraf stated that since gatherings are unwise during the times of COVID-19 so it seemed appropriate to hold a small celebration with children who deserved it more than anyone.
He further said that while loved ones and family members should be included at weddings and festivities, it’s also essential to include individuals who are often overlooked by society, such as street children.
The couple is currently working on two projects together. One is ‘each one, teach one’ foundation and the other is urban tree plantation
Each One Teach One Foundation
This foundation aims to ensure that children who live on the streets receive an education.
The couple believes that children who are forced to pick up trash or beg on a regular basis also have a right to education, and the EOTO foundation is working to make that happen.
A school has been established for this purpose, and is administered by one of Ashraf’s friends.
The initiative is a remarkable action in itself, but the way the couple promoted it and served the children during their wedding has captured many hearts.
