Over 251 fatherless girls belonging to several castes and communities were married at a mass wedding held in Surat, Gujarat.
The mass wedding was organised by Savani families, which are into a variety of businesses all across the city. The ceremony was made possible only because of strong determination of Mahesh Savani- who is a diamond merchant in Gujarat.
He has got over 800 orphan girls married at mass weddings by now, besides financially helping over 1500 family-less girls. Around Rs. 5 lakh was spent on each bride’s wedding. There were many Muslim Christian, disabled girls too, who could not afford this high facility ceremony.
Nikah ceremonies were held for Muslims girls at the function. Every girl got married as per her choice.
Mahesh Savani had organised the same mass wedding in the very city last year where about 400 fatherless girls were married off. He was praised widely on the social media.
