Muzaffarnagar: Eleven women from financially-weak Muslim families took marriage vows at a collective wedding ceremony on Sunday in a village in UP's Muzaffarnagar district. The mass wedding function was organised by the Hindu in the area.
The girls and their families were hit by communal riots of 2013.
A Hindu social worker from the area, Mukesh Bansal, took the initiative for the mass marriage to help poor Muslim families.
The ceremony took place at a primary school in Charouli village.
The cost of wedding was covered by monetary contributions Bansal had collected from the local community. He is said to have facilitated the marriage of 41 women from financially-weak weak families over the years.
