All done in good fun, the billboards have made the bachelor more popular than he could have imagined.
In an effort to avoid an arranged marriage, Muhammad Malik, a 29-year-old bachelor from London, has put his picture up on billboards across Birmingham to let women know that he is ready to get hitched.
They get right to the point saying: “Save me from an arranged marriage,” followed by a website like: findmalikawife.com.
On the website, Malik explains, “I just haven’t found the right girl yet. It’s tough out there. I had to get a billboard to get seen! 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.”
While not completely against the idea of arranged marriage he said that he would rather try to “find someone on my own first”.

Since putting up the adverts Malik says he has had hundreds of messages expressing interest. His website offers a Google form to fill out if you’re interested.
“I haven’t had the time to look through yet,” he said. “I need to set some time aside – I hadn’t thought this part through.”
Check out his video – he has no shortness of charm:
The billboards will run until January 14th. According to Malik his family has been “down from the beginning” though he “had to convince my mum a bit.”
