ISLAMABAD: Indian woman Uzma, who married Pakistani man Tahir Ali, submitted her reply to Islamabad High Court on Friday.
In the 6-page reply, she has reiterated her earlier claims and said that she was forced to sign the Nikkahnama [nikkah papers].
The reply also claims that Tahir’s affidavit is based on lies. The reply was submitted by Barrister Shahnawaz on behalf of Uzma.
The reply also requested that Uzma is allowed to travel to India as her visa will expire on May 30.
The hearing of the case has been scheduled on May 21.
The case of Indian woman Uzma’s marriage to Pakistani man Tahir became more confusing as it was unraveled in front of the media.
It came to the forefront after her husband claimed that Indian High Commission has stopped her wife from leaving the premises during their visit to apply for visa on May 7.
Uzma, who belongs to New Delhi, and Tahir fell in love with each other in Malaysia, after which she travelled to Pakistan on May 1 via the Wagah border, and got married to him on May 3, according to Tahir.
Later, Indian High Commission claimed that Uzma has been staying there out of her own will.
Following this, Uzma remarked that she was forced to marry Pakistan citizen Tahir Ali at gunpoint. She further remarked that she was unaware that Tahir was married and was the father of four children while speaking to the media.
However, these claims were challenged by her husband, who even provided details of a private conversation in which Uzma seemed to know about his first marriage.
Moreover, their Nikkah video also surfaced in which there were no signs of violence or intimidation.
