Online dating in general, has changed the course of how people find their partners in life, even in the Muslim culture. The rise of fast-paced dating apps has inspired Haroon Mokhtarzada to create Minder, a dating app that primarily caters to the needs of the western Muslim community.
Minder is dedicated to helping Muslims in their quest to find love. It was first launched on February 14, 2015, with about 2,000 people requesting to register. Now it has over 350,000 active members and has created more than 100,000 matches in different countries.
It is generally targeted toward marriage-minded Muslims who are willing and able to settle down. Though it may not be traditional, it has still managed to grasp the idea of true matchmaking, with a modern touch.
