French woman travels to Pakistan to marry Facebook friend
RAHIM YAR KHAN: A 55-year-old French woman has traveled all the way to Pakistan to marry the love of her life, a 29-year-old man from Khanpur.
Kahterine Louvet became friends with Umair Ahmed on Facebook, which gradually blossomed into a love affair until the couple got married on Thursday.
Katherine was formally Christian but she also converted to Islam and named herself Ayesha. She said that she loves Pakistan and thinks the people are beautiful. “But I want my husband to move with me to France.”
Umair said that the two had become friends on Facebook four years ago. “When she expressed the desire to marry me, I asked her to first convert to Islam.”
Umair is already married and had one child, but his first wife and family do not have any objections with the marriage. Katherine said that she would take her husband to France.
