JEDDAH – A correspondent and an announcer at the Turkish government TRT space channel has fulfilled the wish of his would be wife who asked him to present to her the wedding ring while kneeling in front of the Holy Kaaba inside the Grand Mosque in Makkah. She also asked him to film the event.
The correspondent, Yusuf Akion, the son of the former Turkish media attache to the Kingdom, had presented the wedding ring to his finance in front of the Holy Kaaba in 2012 but she asked him to do that while kneeling down otherwise she would not marry him.
It took Akion five years to do this.
In 2017 he presented the wedding ring to his finance right in front of the Holy Kaaba and caught the moment live on the social media.
“Here I am in front of the Holy Kaaba. Here are also our blessed mothers. I am a little bit ashamed of them but I thought I was doing something good,” he said.
The video went viral on the Internet but he had to delete it after he was strongly criticized on his action.
