Sania Mirza, the wife of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian Tennis player gave a crisp response to a troll on social media. A Pakistani Twitter user wished her Independence Day and said if she is probably celebrating Independence Day on August 14th. Pakistan celebrates its Independence Day on August 14th and India celebrates a day after on 15th August.

The Twitter user in its tweet to Sania Mirza wrote: “Happy Independence Day Sania Mirza. Aapka Independence Day Aaj hai na? (Your country’s Independence Day is today, right?)”

Sania Mirza took to Twitter and retorted that she and her country will celebrate Independence Day on 15th August. Sania Mirza reiterated she is loyal to her Indian identity and will not change it.

Sania wrote, “Jee Nahi. Mera Aur meri country ka Independence Day kal hai. Mere husband aur unnki country ka Aaj. Hope your confusion is cleared. Wese aapka kab hai? You seem very confused. (No. My country and I will celebrate Independence Day tomorrow. However, my husband and his country celebrate it today. But when is yours?”

After an unpleasant exchange of Tweets, Sania Mirza again took to Twitter and felicitated Pakistani Independence Day in a humble tweet. Sania Mirza exquisitely balanced her relations with both the countries. She tweeted: Happy Independence Day to my Pakistani fans and friends !! best wishes and love from your Indian Bhabi.

On the other hand, Shaniera Akram, the wife of pacer Wasim Akram also greeted her friends and followers on 14th August Independence Day in a heart-melting tweet. Shaniera Akram seemed to have wholeheartedly embraced her Pakistani identity.

She wrote: In the past few years I have watched Pakistan grow rapidly before my eyes. In 2018, every Pakistani celebrates today not only for the Independence we have had but for the Independence we are now owning together as a People. I’m so very proud to be a part of that.

In another tweet, she wrote: I can imagine but remember you don’t need to be here to celebrate the unity of our country. If anything, today has taught us that the heart of Pakistan is not just in our land, but more so it’s in its people!

  1. It will not make Shaniera Akram any lesser Australian if she embraces Pakistan (and by extention Pakistani’s) of their independence day. We appreciate her for that, and love and respect her for it. as for Mrs. Mirza, perhaps she knows that whatever she tweets or says may be wrongly interpreted by the Indian media and taken out of proportion, so let us give her the benefit of the doubt. We love you too!!
