    Another really nice short story. I am glad to find fiction & literature here at ATP. Also, really glad to find that I am not the only engineer interested in writing, literature and arts.

    AOA to alls

    It is a very nice post and it reflective of the reality
    It is a typical Pakistani culture and it is right.
    Most of peoples believe on this type of culture now.
    Most are think it is right and most of them are thought is wrong.

    It is difficult to distinguish if this is fiction or a real story! specially since such stories can be expected to take place in the given environment of our innocent rural and not so rural settings. It is often that Qaris & Khateebs while busy conducting their daily readings will also keep an eye for things in the surrounding.
    I certainly feel sorry for son Akmal that Qari sahibs forthrightness in proposing his matrimonial may have killed any options Akmal may have had depending on how liberally his father felt towards son’s becoming involved in the so-called affair.
    In the light of Islam it would be rather encouraging if the parents adopt the policy of “assisted marriages” over “arranged marriages” and act as the wali (agent) of a girl rather than a custodian, yes the parents do have the right & privilege of applying their wisdom in these affairs however they should also be forthright and forthcoming in politely discussing options and their merits and demerits.
