Thackeray Snubs Sania for Deciding to Marry Shoaib
Snubbing tennis player Sania Mirza for deciding to marry Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray has said that ‘had Sania’s heart been Indian, it wouldn’t have beaten for a Pakistani’, said media reports.
“Henceforth, Sania will not remain an Indian. Had her heart been Indian, it wouldn’t have beaten for a Pakistani. If she wished to play for India, she should have chosen an Indian life partner,” 84-year-old Thackeray was quoted as saying in an editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.
“More than victories on tennis court, Sania became famous for her tight clothes, fashion and love affairs,” Thackeray was quoted as saying.
“More than her play, people’s attention was on her mannerisms,” he was quoted as claiming.
Thackeray said that ‘for Shoaib, India is an enemy, not only in sports arena but also in the battlefield’, reports said.
“We have heard that Shoaib has many affairs in India and has promised many girls he will marry them,” he was quoted as saying.
The Shiv Sena chief also expressed his surprise over the eagerness which was shown in granting Pakistani visas to Sania’s family members, reports said.
“Getting a Pakistani visa is tough even for a singer like Lata Mangeshkar,” he was quoted as saying.
