Pray for peace instead of spreading more hate: Sania Mirza

Raja Singh's sensational remarks on Sania Mirza

Raja Singh's sensational remarks on Sania Mirza

BJP MLA Raja Singh called Sania Mirza "Bahu of Pakistan" and proposed to remove her as the brand ambassador of Telangana despite the tennis ace strongly condemning the Pulwama attack.

"My dear Telanganites, our chief minister K Chandrashekhar Raoji has appointed Sania Mirza as the state brand ambassador". Singh demanded that the State government withdraw the "brand ambassador" status of Sania Mirza as she was the daughter-in-law of Pakistan.

The saffron party's firebrand leader's demand comes in the wake of the Pulwama massacre. The attack resulted in the death of more than 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and the attacker.

While the nation is grieving the loss of these courageous souls, several people used this reason to target celebs, especially Indian tennis player Sania Mirza. Mirza said in a lengthy post on Twitter.

The Pulwama attack is considered to the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir. And, the couple lives in Dubai most of the time.

The tennis star player recently gave birth to a baby boy in her hometown Hyderabad.

With less than six weeks to go until March 29, chances are growing that Britain will seek to postpone its departure from the EU. It does want to discuss other ways to find a compromise, but, so far, London has been insistent on changing the legal text.

"You can make any one of them as the brand ambassador, but we don't want a Pakistani Bahu in that post", he asserted. She participates in official programmes in this capacity.

Celebrities have been targets of choice for the hate-filled machinery that is trolling, and Sania Mirza - a "favourite" of the troll army - has finally had enough.

While the world celebrated Valentine's Day on February 14, for Indians it was a black day. She added in a long social media post that she doesn't have to condemn the attack publicly to prove her patriotism.

"I play for my country, I sweat for it and that shows how I served my country". I stand with the CRPF jawans and their families, my heart goes out to them and they are our true heroes who protect our country.

"This day will not be forgotten and neither shall it be forgiven but yes I will stay pray for peace and you should too instead of spreading more hate".
