A groom was beaten up at his own wedding by the family of his first wife when he was discovered tying the knot for the third time without her prior permission.
Asif Rafiq Siddiqi was slapped, shoved, his pants and shirt torn by the angered crowd following the shocking revelation.
The incident happened in Karachi’s North Nazimabad area in Pakistan.
While polygamy is legal in Pakistan and a man can marry up to four wives, he must, however, first get the consent of his wives before acquiring a new wife.
Under the Muslim Family Laws Ordinance 1961, a written permission is required from the first wife before tying the knot for a second time.
After Asif failed to honour this critical step, an enraged woman and her family stormed the wedding banquet in Karachi, Pakistan’s most populous city.
In a video of the event which has gone viral on social media, one of the bride’s relative is heard inquiring from the angry woman what the matter is.
The woman, identified as Madiha Siddiqi went ahead to reveal that Asaf is her husband, saying that he had lied to her he was travelling for three days.
“He is my husband, and he is the father of this child. He told me he was going to Hyderabad for three days,” she claimed, before introducing more people she claimed to be her relatives.
“That is my mother-in-law and that is my jethani (sister-in-law), who said her mother had been sick for three days and was on IV drips.
“Didn’t you know that he was my husband? He didn’t even think about this innocent child,” she confronted the bride.
According to Siddiqi, she met the groom at Karachi’s Federal Urdu University where he works and they tied the knot in 2016.
The wife claimed that her husband had secretly contracted a second marriage in 2018 and was now caught attempting a third marriage in a similar manner.
She added that she heard about the marriage in 2018 when the second wife sent a text message to her.
