Jab Do Dil Pyaar Karega

This post is about this Sindhi Group Saving Girls from Falling in love. Obviously this was the most obnoxious thing that I had heard for a long time. And there were some obvious reactions. http://www.ibnlive.com/news/sindhis-fuming-over-fatwa/38506-3.html. But things were not supposed to stop at that point.
