‘Save me from an arranged marriage!’: Bachelor, 29, plasters himself on huge billboards and sets up his own website in bid to find a wife
- Mohammad Malik, 29, advertises on billboards and on www.findmalikawife.com
- The bachelor has taken the drastic move in a bid to find himself his dream wife
- Although not against arranged marriages, Mohammad wants to ‘try himself first’
A lonely bachelor has taken an unusual step in finding true love – by plastering his face across huge billboards in the hope of finding his dream wife.
Entrepreneur Mohammad Malik, 29, set up the website ‘findmalikawife.com’ and has plastered his face across several advertising hoardings across Birmingham.
Drivers using the A34 can see a smiling Mohammad lying on the floor and jokingly begging prospective partners to ‘save me from an arranged marriage’.
But any ladies fearing this might just be a gag can rest assured that Mohammad is seriously searching for a wife to ‘grow our love for each other and Allah’.
Mohammad hopes his big vision will trump anyone opting for dating apps, expert advice or trying to connect through mutual friends or family members.
‘I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there’, he explained.
‘I had to get a billboard to get seen!’

Mohammad is originally from London, but describes Birmingham as ‘a second home’ thanks to the ‘top quality food spots in the city centre, bustling Alum Rock and the incredible mosques’.
The innovation consultant and entrepreneur also features on billboards on Golden Hillock Road and Hockley Circus in the city.
His website, findmalikawife.com, details his no-expense-spared search for love.
‘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.’
Mohammad says he took the unusual approach to find romance after the usual methods of meeting ‘the one’ did not bear fruit.
He said: ‘I’m a creative, love doing the most random and absurd – but 100 per cent halal of course – things.
‘Traditional methods such as “rishta aunties” didn’t work for me so thought why not take it to the billboards!’
The word ‘Rishta’ means to propose in Hindi, meaning a ‘rishta auntie’ is essentially a marriage broker who serves as a matchmaker for men and women in her community.
Mohammad added: ‘I’m hoping to find the one. It’s early days but responses thus far have been in the double digits – keep them coming.’
Mohammad was keen to stress his search for love was genuine and that he is not against arranged marriages
Mohammad was keen to stress his search for love was genuine and that he is not against arranged marriages.
He said: ‘I think arranged marriages have a place and tradition in many Islamic cultures.
‘In fact, there are many studies that show that arranged marriages have many advantages.
‘I just want to try and find someone on my own first.’
Mohammad says he has already had a huge response to his wife search adverts – with a ‘double digit’ number of replies.
