Sania Mirza condemns BJP leader’s comments

Renowned tennis player Sania Mirza has condemned the comments of a Telangana BJP leader hailing her as Pakistan’s daughter-in-law. Sania retorted back saying that she was an Indian and will always remain one. K Laxman, a BJP legislator from Telangana, has questioned the credentials of Ms Mirza, 27 as brand ambassador for India’s youngest state as she is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik. The statement has been widely criticized creating a furor of sorts. Mirza’s family belongs to Hyderabad for more than a century and she can never be branded an outsider. Sania added that she was hurt that time was being wasted on such a petty issue as she has been living in Hyderabad since she was 3 weeks old. The ruling TRS, headed by K Chandrasekhara Rao, defended its decision on Ms Mirza. Hanumantha Rao of the Congress, a parliamentarian from Telangana is among those who disagree with Ms Mirza’s new post as she hasn’t worked in Telangana before. This is in direct contrast to the announcement proclaiming that she would serve as Telegana’s brand ambassador by Telangana CM describing Sania as the daughter of Hyderabad while sanctioned a crore for her coaching and training.
