New Delhi: Congratulating UPSC IAS toppers Tina Dabi and Athar Aamir, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the newly-wed couple is an inspiration for all Indians amid growing intolerance and communal hatred.

"Congratulations Tina Dabi & Athar Amir-ul-Shafi, IAS toppers, batch of 2015, on your wedding! May your love grow from strength to strength and may you be an inspiration to all Indians in this age of growing intolerance and communal hatred. God bless you", Rahul Gandhi said in a tweet.

Tina Dabi and Athar Aamir Ul Shafi Khan had hit the headlines in May 2016 when Civil Services 2015 exam results were declared. About a year and half later they were again everywhere in the media when they revealed to the world that they are in love. Their love story finally ended in a destination wedding. According to the reports, the two tied the knot in a hotel in the picturesque locale of Kashmir's Pahalgam.

“We met in the morning, and by evening Aamir was at my door,” Tina Dabi is quoted as saying. “Uske liye pehli nazar mein pyaar ho gaya (For him, it was love at first sight). I thank Aamir every day for his perseverance. He is a wonderful person."

Earlier, Dabi had said that their parents had accepted their relationship and were happy about her choice. “As any freethinking independent woman I am entitled to certain choices. I am very happy with my choice and so is Aamir. Our parents are happy too. But there will always be those elements, that small minority who will always pass negative comments about dating someone from another religion", she said.

"It is just that 5%. The majority are very happy . You would have seen in my Facebook timeline that most of the comments are encouraging. In fact, I am overwhelmed by the support and congratulatory messages. I thought ‘yeh to achcha hai” (this is good.),’” she added.
