A Pakistani groom has got a bizarre wedding gift, the video of which is going viral online. The video shows a woman greeting the newlyweds and asking someone to hand over the gift — an AK-47 — to her that she offered to the groom amid cheers from the crowd

The video has triggered a mixed reaction online.

According to ARY News, the woman who is seen presenting the assault rifle — commonly known as Kalashnikov in Pakistan — is reportedly the mother-in-law of the groom.

Watch the video here:

Firing a few rounds in the air is a custom during weddings and sporting victories in South Asian countries, however, gifting one might not be a known tradition.

What, however, really intrigued some people online was how the groom didn’t look surprised or shocked. He remained unfazed as he received the Kalashnikov from his mother-in-law. With people cheering and applauding in the background, many though it could be a family ritual.

Many recalled what they got as wedding presents as joke while other slammed gun control measures in the country.
