I received a very strange phone call from only daughter of one of my very good old friend. She is 21. To give a little perspective - my friend and her family are very conservative in terms of religious practices. But despite my liberal and mostly outrageous views, we get along well.
Daughter has received a 'rishta' from a Muslim boy. 'Larka' is a lawyer and frequently deals with family and criminal cases. Girl's father is refusing rishta on the ground that - he may be carrying a lot of burden of bud-dua from people and eventually it will either corrupt or harm his daughter.
Being an obedient daughter, she doesn't want to go against father's wishes but she likes boy too!
I haven't decided yet what to do!!
