Sania Mirza slams Twitter user for questioning her nationality

Sania Mirza is not new to trolling and neither is she shy when it comes to putting across her views on social media.

The tennis champion was one of the many celebrities on to take to Twitter to question the apathy surrounding the gang rape and murder of an eight-year-old girl in Jammu and Kashmir’s Kathua.

After the tennis player’s tweet, a Twitter user, who describes himself as a nationalist and a social media coordinator for Indian political party BJP, replied, “With all respect madam which country are you talking about. Last time I checked you had married into Pakistan. You are no longer an Indian. And if u must tweet then also tweet for the innocents killed by Pakistan terror outfits..”

Sania gave a befitting reply to the user and said, “First of all nobody marries ‘into’ anywhere .. you marry a person! Secondly NO LOW LIFE like you will tell me which country I belong to.. I play for India,I am Indian and always will be.. and maybe if u look beyond religion and country one day you may just also stand for humanity!”

The eight-year-old girl, who belonged to the nomadic Muslim Bakherwal community, was abducted, held captive for days under the influence of sedatives at a temple, and gangraped multiple times before being killed. The incident has split Jammu and Kashmir along communal lines. Eight people have been charged in the case: Sanji Ram, his nephew, his son Vishal Jangotra, a friend of the nephew, a police sub-inspector, a head constable and two special police officers.
