A bachelor in hope of a wife has advertised himself on huge billboards across the city.

A 20ft billboard with the image of Mohammad Malik, 29, has plastered his picture on several advertising boards across the Birmingham.

Mohammed is seen lying on his side pointing upwards with a big smile and joking: “Save me from an arranged marriage.”

Mohammad, from London but says Brum is his second home, he is an innovation consultant and entrepreneur and some of the billboards he appears on is Golden Hillock Road and Hockley Circus.

He set up a website ‘Findmailkawife.com’ and Mohammed has said “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”

“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!”

He 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!”

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.
