The two girls were expected to be married on October 11 but due to the recent tension in the village, the Hakeem  family decided to move their wedding somewhere outside the village. However, some village elders convinced them to not shift the venue while a group of Hindus decided to lend a helping hand and took over the arrangements for the food and tent.
