ISLAMABAD: Pakistanis are going gaga over the upcoming Sania Mirza-Shoaib Malik wedding, with some ardent fans creating a Facebook page to welcome ‘Sania Bhabhi’.
“We welcome Bhabhi Sania Mirza to Pakistan” was created on the social networking website shortly after Sania and Shoaib confirmed they were getting married on April 15. Most fans who posted on the page took pride in the fact that Sania would soon be Pakistan’s “bahu”.Some others, however, regretted that the couple would be staying in Dubai after their marriage. “Nice couple. May Allah bless them,” wrote Fareeha Akhtar, a fan of the page.
Links to news items and pictures of Sania and Shoaib have been posted on the page. Fans were asked to refrain from posting “offensive” comments.
“Dear fans. Please do not write offensive or derogatory comments on this page. Sania and Shoaib are Pakistan’s pride and we must respect them,” wrote the creator of the page.
So far, over 300 Pakistanis have joined the facebook fan site to welcome Sania to Pakistan.
