Don’t let them marry me!

A simple SMS can change people’s lives and can also bring happiness. This was the case of Ahmed, a young man from Midlands, who was about to be forced by his parents to marry a girl he barely knew. Ahmed has a girlfriend that his family doesn’t like, and his parents tried to separate him from her forever. They told Ahmed to go with them in Pakistan to see his grandmother who was ill. But when he and his family arrived in Pakistan, his grandmother was just fine. Ahmed was told he can’t leave home until he married the girl they had chosen. Fortunately, Ahmed owns a cellular and sent many text messages to his girlfriend in Britain, explaining the whole story. The girl alerted the Foreign Office, which contacted its consular officials in Pakistan. There waa a rescue operation, but we don't know yet if the ones meant to eachother lived happily everafter :)
