A video captures her love story against the backdrop of anti-Citizenship Act protests in Delhi, where she meets Fahad Ahmed, whose biography describes him as the leader of the Samajwadi Party’s youth wing.
The newlyweds, the twins in crimson, were spotted in various photos walking hand in hand, dancing and posing with family and friends.
The two met on stage in January 2020 during a protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), widely criticized as a discriminatory law that makes religion a factor in nationality and seeks to fast track citizenship to non-Muslim immigrants to India.
