For the unversed, Fahad is the Maharashtra Unit President of the Samajwadi Party youth wing, according to his Twitter profile. The Mumbai-based political leader graduated from Aligarh Muslim University and completed his M.Phil in social work from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai.
Going by his birth year which is 1992, Fahad is four years junior to Swara Bhasker. He was a prominent face in the anti-CAA protests across the country where the couple met for the first time.
It was in 2018 that the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) decided to withdraw financial aid to students from the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes, who were eligible for the Union government’s post-matriculation scholarship. The students’ union had called for a strike and Fahad was at the forefront of it. He was the general secretary during that time, and the protest continued for over 300 days. Fahad was pursuing his M.Phil at that time.
Swara Bhasker and Fahad’s paths crossed at CAA protests and now the two have registered their marriage. After meeting at the rallies, the two became friends. Fahad had invited Swara to his brother’s wedding and the actor even said that while she would not be able to attend it due to work commitments, she would most definitely attend his wedding.
