Man uses Billboard Ad to ‘Save’ Himself from Arranged Marriage - f

“Save me from an arranged marriage.”

In a unique bid to avoid an arranged marriage and find his dream wife, a man has plastered his face across billboards in Birmingham.

Entrepreneur Muhammad Malik set up the website ‘findmalikawife.com’ and has plastered himself on several advertising boards across Birmingham, as well as London and Manchester.

On the website, Muhammad has included his profession, age and hobbies alongside a video in which the bachelor introduces himself.

In the video, he can be seen inviting people to fill the form on his website if they are interested.

Drivers using the A34 can see a smiling Muhammad lying on the floor and jokingly begging prospective partners to “save me from an arranged marriage”.

Muhammad hopes his method of finding a partner will work better than the usual routes to love such as dating apps or trying to connect through mutual friends.

The 29-year-old, who also works as an innovation consultant, described himself as a creative 5ft 8-inch tall man.

Expressing his struggle to find the ‘one’, Muhammad Malik said:

“I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there.

“I had to get a billboard to get seen!”

The bachelor revealed that he also tried his luck through “rishta aunties” but when it did not work, Muhammad thought of taking the unusual approach of finding love through billboard ads.

He added: “I just want to try and find someone on my own first.”

While claiming to be open to any ethnicity, the man emphasised that his ideal woman would be a Muslim girl in her 20s.

He further asserted that he favours certain qualities such as personality and faith.

On his website, he wrote: “My ideal partner would be a Muslim woman in her 20s, who’s striving to better her deen.

“I’m open to any ethnicity but I’ve got a loud Punjabi family – so you’d need to keep with the bants.

“Always personality and faith over anything else!”

“P.S I’m an only child and look after my mom and dad. If this is a deal-breaker I don’t think it’ll work out.”

In the 20 ft billboards set up by the bachelor, Muhammad can be seen lying on his side while pointing towards a text which reads:

“Save me from an arranged marriage.”

He further revealed that he has received a positive reaction and hundreds of responses to his advertisements.
