Hyderabad, May 1: Madhava Reddy and Lakshmi Reddy married off their only daughter Farzana in Islamic way. Farzana, who lost both her parents in childhood, was adopted by her neighbor Madhava Reddy and his wife Lakshmi and brought up in pure Islamic traditions as her own biological parents would have. The Reddys had to step in to take care of four-year-old Farzana as none of her relatives came forward to do so.
It was a simple wedding in Goraipally mandal in Yadgirgutta on Sunday (28th April), which moved so many hearts and left so many eyes moist that her wedding ceremony became one huge congregation of people from all faiths and even far-off places. In today’s scenario where communal forces are active in creating differences between Hindus and Muslims, this incident is an eye opener. Mr.&Mrs. Madhav Reddy never let Farzana feel that she was an orphan. Reddys not only arranged a separate room for Farzana to offer namaz and recite Quran but also provided her the best education.

Mr. Reddy has given clothes and gold to Farzana. The Reddy couple could barely hold back their tears as they headed to the Z.P. High School for the ‘nikah’ ceremony. Farzana was also seen shedding silent tears as she hugged the duo whom she loved more than her biological parents.
