After Pakistani team, Sania Mirza has become one of the favorite targets of the disappointing Pakistani cricket fans after videos and photos of the couple at a sheesha bar went viral on social media. After facing criticism and backlash on Twitter, announced a break from Twitter.
Reacting strongly to these trolls, Shoaib Akhtar took to himself to shut down the social media trolls defending Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza over a video that went viral on Sunday, showcasing the couple at a sheesha bar with their son, Izhaan.
“Sania Mirza is that unfortunate lady, who, whatever she does, gets criticized, unnecessarily, from both India and Pakistan. She is needlessly criticized. She just went out with her husband to have a meal, she just had a child, she has just gone to meet her husband! What crime has she committed? They were not sitting there at 6 AM,” the former pacer said, explaining how the Indian tennis star has always been on the receiving end of criticism because of the team’s poor performance against India.
He further added “You do not have the right to point fingers at anyone. Sania had for the last two months been struggling to meet her husband and they had just gone out for dinner. How come Sania’s meeting’s linked to Shoaib’s performance in the match anyway”.
Shoaib Akhtar concluded by making it clear that targeting the team’s families is highly unacceptable, “It is just stupid, stupid comments and stupid mentality which hurts me a lot. Please think twice before talking about somebody’s family and somebody’s wife. You have no right to talk about somebody’s family.”
