Twenty six year old Azim Mansoori from Uttar Pradesh approached the Shamli Police with an unusual request recently. He approached the cops to help him find a bride as he is tired of being single and getting rejected by potential life partners. Azim who hails from Uttar Pradesh's Kairana, is just over 2 feet tall. Every time a family comes with a proposal to his family, he does not get his hopes up as they reject him because of his height.
According to reports, Azim has been looking for a life partner for over five years now. He is the youngest among five siblings and runs a cosmetic store with his brother. He dropped out of school in class V because of all the taunts and insults he had to face.
His parents started searching a bride for him when he turned 21 years old, but due to Azim’s height, no one agreed to the marriage proposal. He says that this has caused him a lot of stress and that is unable to sleep at night.
Hurt by rejections and armed with letters, he began seeking help from public officials. He had even met former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow. In 2019, a video of a policeman speaking to his family about getting him married went viral. He also wrote a letter explaining his plight to current chief minister Yogi Adityanath.
He has now sought help from the police after exhausting both conventional and unconventional matchmaking ways. He wants the cops to find him a bride as part of their “public service”.
”I have been trying for so long. Is there no one with whom I can live my life? Now I have come to ask for help from the Police.”
According to Shamli Kotwali Station House Officer (SHO) Satpal Singh, Azim approached the police station on Wednesday to request them to find a bride. The SHO added, "We don't know what to do. But we will see what can be done."
