Bangladeshi man becomes first Muslim in Britain to wed in same-sex marriage


PV Desk : The 24-year-old, Jahed Choudhury, tied the knot with his boyfriend Sean Rogan, 19, in Britain’s first-ever gay Muslim wedding, reports the Daily Mail.

Choudhury said being homosexual, he grew up being bullied at home and school, and was eventually sent on a religious pilgrimage to “cure the disease.”

He met Rogan two years ago when he had given up all hope and was even considering killing himself.

Rogan had spotted Choudhury crying on a town bench in Darlaston and comforted him. They soon became a couple.

The two wed in a ceremony in Walsall, both wearing traditional wedding clothes.

Choudhury’s mother, sister, older brother and cousin attended the wedding, as did Rogan’s mother, two sisters and older brother.
