It was a destination wedding for 2015 IAS Toppers Tina Dabi and Athaar Aamir-ul-Shafi Khan. While Tina had topped the 2015 Union Public Service Commission exam, Khan had secured the second position. The lovely couple solemnised their relationship in one of Jammu and Kashmir’s most famous picturesque locale – Pahalgam – on Saturday. After the culmination of the marriage ceremony, the couple, along with their parents and relatives drove to Devepora Mattan – Khan’s ancestral village in South Kashmir’s Anantnag.
Tina Dabi, a Delhiite fell in love with Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan, who hails from Jammu and Kashmir, soon after they met at the department of personnel and training office in Delhi for the felicitation function on May 11, 2015. About a year and a half later, the couple was again everywhere in the media when they revealed to the world that they are in love. Talking about their relationship, Tina said it was a love-at-first-sight. She was quoted as saying, “We met in the morning and by evening Aamir was at my door. Uske liye pehli nazar mein pyaar ho gaya (For him, it was love at first sight). But I thank Aamir every day for his perseverance. He is a wonderful person.” The beauty with brains also said that she was floored by Khan’s wit and charm.
Since the news of Tina and Athaar Aamir-ul-Shafi Khan tying the knot broke out, Twitter is getting flooded with the wishes to the newlyweds.
Here’s a look at how the Twitterati reacted:
As inter-faith relationships don’t go well with people in India, Tina Dabi and Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan had their share of problems when they first announced their marriage. While some rebuked Dabi’s choice calling it irrational and stupid, some religious fringe groups even called it a case of ‘love jihad’. However, these things didn’t make a difference to create a problem between Dabi’s and Khan’s relationship. Kudos to the IAS couple!
