PU Jalandhar

31st July 2018, Jalandhar: National Commission for Women (NCW) organized a one-day national seminar on ‘NRI Marriage related Issues in Punjab’, today, at the auditorium of Lovely Professional University.  The objective of the seminar was to deliberate on sensitive, crucial issues and concerns pertaining to NRI marriages in Punjab and to forward solutions. Chairperson NCW Rekha Sharma presided over the seminar; whereas, Shiromani Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) Chairperson Gobind Singh Longowal chaired it. Chairperson, Punjab State Commission for NRI, Justice (Retd) Rajesh Kumar Garg forwarded important legal tips to the victims. Two important sessions on ‘Legal Complexities Involved in NRI Marriages and Possible Solutions’ and ‘Sociocultural Context of NRI Marriages in Punjab’ witnessed massive participation from diverse sections of the society including police officials, complainants and their parents, friends, relatives, and students.

Taking reference of a matrimonial advertisement made for a girl to get married to an NRI only, NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma held: “Society as a whole need to change the mindset that marriage is the only aspiration of a girl.  Like boys, girls should also be guided to be financially independent before getting married. Settlement in foreign countries is not easy and wonderful.” She suggested Punjabi girls and their families check the details about the prospective groom before getting married; and, to avoid illegal migration through the course of marriages.”

SGPC Chairperson Shri Longowal assured to have connections with like-minded religious and social bodies in foreign countries so that such issues may be easily tackled down. He illustrated that for this a special wing of SGPC will also be formed out. He also invoked all, especially Punjabis, to provide proper education to their children before getting them married or planning to send them abroad. He alerted that many of the persons residing in foreign lands have made it a ‘business’ and all should be cautious about this.
