Sania Mirza and the Difficullty in Marrying a Pakistani

"WITH great powers come great responsibility." This one line stayed with me after watching the movie Spiderman. And this is exactly my take on Sania Mirza's proposed marriage to Shoeb Malik.

I have no issue with Sania or Shoeb as individuals. Who they marry is their personal choice. The problem is with the broader picture. Sania Mirza is a people's champion and a sports celebrity in India. Although she won less tournaments but is constantly in news as people love her.

She has a nation rooting for her every time she plays for India. She is India's pride on the tennis court. Off the field she continues to inspire millions of young girls in her country. They admire her guts and copy her style.

Bring in India's history with Pakistan, and her marriage plans surprised many like me. I agree that people to people contact would go a long way in bridging divides. But Sania being an Indian Muslim and that too an icon has greater responsibility on her young shoulders. Top it with Shoeb own's standing as a popular Pakistani cricketer and you have a complex situation.

Which team will Sania's and Shoeb's future kids support when India and Pakistan play against each other? I hope Sania has an answer to that!

YOU SAID : I have no issue with Sania or Shoeb as individuals.
ME SAID : I do not as well...and for that matter many so-called-libral indians will appreciate it for the sake of INDO-PAK relationship.
YOU SAID : Who they marry is their personal choice.
ME SAID : WHAT personal chioce ...
It would have been personal matter IF somebody have said :
WHY NOT PAKISTANI WIFE ?
OR
WHY NOT INDIAN HUSBAND ?

HERE THE ISSUE IS 'Marrying and Indian girl+accepting her and her family many times with media(biggest GOD of our time) and world+staying with her in Hotel and LATER ...denying her even Divorce for the sake of ANOTHER INDIAN+BEAUTIFUL+MILLIONER girl.
YOU SAID : Which team will Sania's and Shoeb's future kids support when India and Pakistan play against each other?
ME SAID : this is future question...i wish they reach to kids and kids enjoy the healthy relationship with them. Even my Pakistani friends says HE is not good person.

I heard Malik on a Pakistani News channel (GEO) talking about this other girl last year. He told the channel that he was shown a different picture than the actual one of the girl. He said he never married her.

Let's wait for the court verdict to know the real truth.

SHOIAB : "he was shown a different picture than the actual one of the girl."
ME : OK and ...
1. WHY HE STAYED WITH STAYED WITH THAT OTHER GIRL IN HOTEL and
2. WHY HE TOOK WHOLE PAK TEAM TO HER HOME.
SHOAIB : He said he never married her.
ME : OK then
1. WHY HE SAID IN GEO TV ( I GUESS THIS IS NOT INDIAN CHANNEL) INTERVIEW THAT HE IS MARRIED TO HYD. GIRL AND HER NAME IS AIYESHA.
2. WHY HE HIMSELF INFORMED MADALAL THAT HE IS IN HIS WIFE'S TOWN AND ACCEPTED 'CONGRATS' FROM HIM...

COURT CASE : IN INDIA COURT SYSTEM IS TOO .....

Lets wait...BUT why Sania is not waiting(like you) until court decides...? ohh..this is her personal matter ..

My post is about Sania marrying a Pakistani in general, Shoeb Malik and the court proceedings come secondary.

And she has always courted controversy more than winning on the actual courts! It's no surprise to me then that she went ahead with her plans.

So now it has been proved :
1. Indian Muslim community came under much pressure from :
1. Mirza family
2. Pakistani muslim leaders
and did the GREAT FAVOUR to PAKISTAN and MIRZAs.
2. Shoaib and his family were cheating the whole world and were thinking that they can cleaverly handle the common Indian girl.
3. Aiyesha has proved that she is REAL Indian girl who:
a. Can be do all the things for her husband including going for life threatening surgery.
b. If needed then she can nail her HUSBAND as well.
c. Can forgive her cheater husband as well ?
d. does not need money-what she need is self-respect ONLY.
3. Shoaib is not at all the man who can be trusted...he leaved his ex-wife only because of her bad looks...who knows :
- he can later say that he divorced under prressure from INDIAN POLICE ?
- leave Sania as well saying that she does not look good in specs.
( and in dubai NOBODY will help the SANIA as we did for AIYESHA)
4. Sania is no more real Indian respectable girl as :
a. she left her previous long-time boyfriend because of a cheater and dubai projects.
b. She herself is women and knows(or knew) that He cheated another indian girl for look and denied all the time to fool the world.
c. She is standing by a pakistani guy whom she is calling her future husband.I fully agree that every pakistani is not as bad as Shoaib but still they are not our BEST friends(although they like bollywood,IPL and indisn business opportunities...they DO NOT HAVE other options) given a chance they would leave no stone unturned to bash our country. I am not saying this for the sake but have noticed it personally and believe me pakistanis are cheering every bit of this girl and making fun ,you can see the yahoo chat rooms yourself.

You said it right!

Sania lost my support the day her style took over her tennis abilities. She had the talent which unfortunately couldn't be utilise properly.

Her controversial marriage comes as no surprise to me. With her rankings going down she had to move to greener pastures. What better city for celebrities than Dubai.

I agree with the noble thought vicky but then the country is bigger than the game.

When you are a celebrity you have increased responsibilities.

Thousands of marriages have taken place between Pakistanis and Indians. I personally know dozens of such couples and i also know that there children have no problem in rooting for teams of their choices !! What a childish angle taken up by Mr. Abidi !

It is interesting that the blogowner doesn't like to post comments that are critical of him, the matter or the so erroneous language used!
