  12. Aslam Alekum
    Can a muslim pakistani girl being a government employee marry a foreigner guy already converted to Islam, in pakistan without any risk to her job & nationality ?

    1. For government employees who wish to marry with foreigner need permission from his/her department. But many government employees got marriage without permission from their department.

  13. I am asking if she doesn’t seek permission, is it against law & her job is at risk ?
    Or if she asks for permission would they allow ? Is it possible in our country law ?

    Because i came to know according to Act 1951, a pakistani government employee can only marry an Indian national after seeking permission from government/court.

      1. Sorry its 1962 & i was talking about this

        Marriage or promise of marriage with foreign national[s] (except Indian) to be considered ‘Misconduct’.- Attention is invited to the Government Servants (Marriage with Foreign Nationals) Rules 1962, whereunder marriage or promise of marriage with foreign national except those of India, by any Government servant is not permitted and contravention of these rules is considered as misconduct rendering the Government servants found guilty, liable to be removed from service. Marriage or promise thereof with the citizens of India is possible only with prior permission of the Government (ibid., Sec. 146).
