RAWALPINDI – unregistered Nikah Khawans are working in all the areas of cantonment board with impunity and are looting the people by charging hefty fee. “These Nikah Khawans have displayed their name plates on their homes and mosques while in fact they are not registered with concerned quarters. They are charging the people more than the fee prescribed by cantonment board”, said Tasawar Malik, a resident of Tench Bhatta. Most of them are mere primary pass and even cannot fill the Nikah Formst, said an ageing man Naeem Khawaja.
 “We are not sure these unregistered Nikah Khawans provide the Nikah documents to concerned offices for registration or otherwise”, said Irfan Dammar, a shop keeper.
“They are pocketing money and charging hefty fee but no one from concerned authorities is questioning their illegal business, complained a religious leader, Maulana Mujeebur Rehman. Residents of the cantonment areas have demanded of the concerned authorities to take action against these unregistered Nikah Khawans to avert incidents of fake Nikahs.
