SHOAIB MALIK & SANIA MIRZA’S MARRIAGE THE MOST HYPED WEDDING SO FAR

Sania Mirza can handle more pressure than Malik

Sania Mirza can handle more pressure than Malik. And Malik in this photo says, "Sir kata saktay hain laikin Sur jhuka saktay nahee! "

PERCEPTION  can always  be deluded by misrepresentation of facts. I always love to quote this expression in situations were there is any doubt in understanding a problem or a situation, “A mind can only see what it is prepared to see.” This is so true, because most of us are reactive type and we react according to the information that is presented to us and this way the facts are obscured from the mind and the mind can only see what is presented to it. We sometimes jump to conclude without analyzing the facts and pass judgments accordingly.

In case of Shoaib Malik’s so-called, so-far the first marriage, there are certain facts  that are there but, there are certain things that have been exaggerated, changed and blown out of proportion.  I feel the need of writing a thread to clear off the doubts and bring out the facts and realities to whatever extent we can by thrashing out this debate which is so hot at the moment that in Pakistan Shoaib and Sania Mirza’s news has taken over Asif Zardari’s political fiasco. In India too, it is stealing headlines on all TV channels and newspapers.

The initial statements given by the Siddiqui’s were pretty decently presented  by their family as victims and they got all the sympathies from the majority and Shoaib Malik stood there like a simpleton paindoo, whatever.  And, for that Shoaib Malik is paying a price for not sorting out the unsolved problems because he has once again poked his nose in the same den and this was bound to happen.

However, this time the Siddiqui family is not all that decent, in fact they have crossed the boundaries of decency and behaving like the sly fox that cannot reach some grapes on a high vine and announces that they are sour. However, Ayesha is not giving up yet she sounds bitter and full of vengeance based on the presumption that ‘vengeance is a food that must be eaten cold.’ Well, she is not only creating some funny stories that Malik offered her $1,000,000 to keep her mouth shut, but also threatened her. This is laughable because, no matter how much of a Paindoo Malik may be he cannot do this.  Neither he has that kinda money nor, he is capable of carrying out threats. So, my straightforward reaction is – Ayesha is lying.

Ayesha Siddiqui - Does she look like she is telling the truth?

Ayesha Siddiqui - Does she look like she is telling the truth?

Another story that has been created by the Siddiquis is that Malik had physical relationship with Ayesha hence the marriage was consummated and there was even a miscarriage! This is even more ridiculous because, they never came up with this before. How can they hide such information for so long? This is definitely a matter of sour grapes.

Earlier, the Siddiquis claimed that Malik married her on telephone – to which Malik denied but, later accepted – this is wrong on part of Malik, he should have accepted it then and finished it off. They also produced a marriage certificate (nikahnama) which Malik once again denied that he did not sign it and later accepted it by saying he was too immature at that time. In my opinion he is still not matured enough but, that is another story. Why did Malik created these controversies? That is why I am saying that he is paying a price for his mistakes.

Ayesha Siddiqui has alleged that, ” Malik married her several years ago and consequently needs her permission to marry again or to grant her a divorce.” According to the Indian law Muslims are allowed to marry more than one wife. And, the husband does not need a written permission from his wife, he can only advise her that he is marrying another woman. But, Malik is not even Indian he is a Pakistani hence the law is not applicable.  Secondly, Malik can also deny divorcing her (although he denied marrying her but, accepted signing the marriage certificate and claims that he has been cheated as he was very young and pressurized by the Siddiquis) there is nothing that can stop Malik from marrying Sania Mirza as long as Sania is willing to marry him.

The Indian police in Hyderabad said: ” there were some legal complications involved in the case and they would have to examine whether a foreigner committing an offence on foreign soil comes under the purview of Indian law. “ Absolutely not because he is not Indian, besides I have quoted above that the Indian law permits Muslim to marry and have more than one wife.  So, how come they took Malik’s passport?  This is harassment and the Pakistan Embassy must take up this matter at a higher level.

If the Siddiquis have filed a fraud complaint then, Malik should also do the same by saying that he was cheated and they showed the photograph of another girl and trapped him. If Malik still has the photograph of that girl who is not Ayesha then he should bring it out and show it to the media. Reportedly, Malik refused by saying that the girl has since been married it is not nice to ruin her married life.  That is again a very stupid notion because, that girl must either be Ayesha’s friend or a victim. If she was a friend and played a deliberate ruse to trap Malik, she deserves to be exposed. And, if she is a victim and Ayesha used her photograph without her consent then she should know the truth and she should expose Ayesha. So, Malik trying to be nice and kind is a mistake. It is he who needs to clear his name and he should not hesitate in speaking the truth, if it is the truth.  ” If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.” Mark Twain.

Sania Mirza’s appeal to the Indian media is excellent, she asked them to think before what they are talking or publishing about Malik whom she is going to marry in the next ten days or so. She was serious, firm and straightforward.  She did the job which the Pakistani authorities must have done through a press release or by talking to the media and advising the Indian police to stop harassment.

    I have been criticizing Shoaib Malik for his activities in cricket but, I want to be fair here. So, the reason this thread has been written by me is to give him a fair chance and lets not live with a notion that what we have perceived initially is the right thing. Perceptions are based on how the facts are presented to us and they can be altered and changed when the truth comes out. Please read the thread and comment freely. Thanks

    Javed Khan …

    Very well written and a nice ‘masalay-dar’ thread.

    It was overdue 😉

    PS: I fully agree with you Javed that Malik is a bad cricketer and may be he is a bad person also, but it doesn’t mean that he is wrong in everything he does in life. Even criminals have some rights as humans.

  3. #3 by Mohammed Munir on April 6, 2010 - 10:42 AM

    Khansahab …

    I haven’t heard from any source about Malik’s ban being lifted by the PCB, but if really is true, it will be very unfortunate. This will also degrade and disgrace the Political Cricket Board (PCB) further.

  4. #4 by Mohammed Munir on April 6, 2010 - 10:43 AM

    Khansahab …

    In responce to your comment no. 107, of previous thread.

    Malik is so pathetic and hopeless that he can not plan on taking revenge from the Siddiqui family by choosing Sania for this purpose. He is neither beautiful nor smart enough to do that and catch a girl like Saina. To me this whole thing is NOT planned or perpetrated move by Malik, but a turn of good fortune for him. Why am I saying this is because if Sania was smart enough then she would not have helped Malik in his ‘plans’ to take revenge on Siddiquis.

    What I read somewhere is that Sania and Malik first met in Australia during Pakistan’s recent tour where Sania was also touring for tennis tournament and by chance they both stayed in the same hotel in Hobart, this is where the story started. Then while Pakistan was in Dubai for T20 games against England, Sania also came to Dubai to attend some tennis tournament and they both met again in Dubai, and the rest is history.

    I just can’t imagine Malik to be capable of perpetrating a move of taking revenge on the Siddiquis and ‘Phasaao’ Sania in the deal.

    On your second point, I agree with you that some peoples give more importance to family backgrounds/ money/ fame/ relatives/ etc. when looking for suitable matches for their kids, then the compatibility. But to me Siddiquis are not the richest family around, whereas Malik family, no matter how good or bad they may be to us, are regarded very well within Punjab at least.

    I again agree with your example some beautiful, sexy and educated girl marrying a paindoo looking guy. Well, that lucky paindoo either will be from her distant relatives in Pakistan or may be the girl’s father owed some money to the boy’s father. Actually, a lot of families from USA, UK, and Europe when see their kids (more so daughters) going out of hand due to Western influences, they always try to look for a paindoo looking ‘scapegoat’ from back-home in Pakistan. There are millions of cases of such type ‘arranged’ marriages, but unfortunately such forced-marriages generally end up in troubles.

    BTW, in the above example which you have quoted, would you blame the paindoo looking boy for the marrying that sexy/ educated girl or would you blame the girl and her family for accepting such a match ?? (I would love to see your response to this).

    Yes it is not totally impossible for Malik or any handsome man to fall for someone looking like Ayesha, but how would a person feel if he is being cheated into such a marriage by being shown pictures of other girls ?

    I am sorry to have ask you a direct question that would you like to marry someone like her (Ayesha), but please don’t think that you are ‘shallow person’ because you regards looks highly. I myself accepted that I would not like to marry her and specially if I know somebody have ‘cheated’ me by showing pictures of another person.

    I agree looks are not the most important thing, but then there is something called ‘compatibility’ or at least the overall package. I mean if Ayesha was Bill Gates’s daughter then may be looks won’t matter.

    Malik have stated that he visited Ayesha’s home in India several times after their telephonic ‘nikah’ but each time the girl in the ‘pictures’ was missing. Now listen to this, Malik said that he came to know later that the women he met in Ayesha’s home and was introduced to as Ayesha’s sister, was in fact actually Ayesha, who was herself acting as her own sister. I mean how crazy is this ?

    You will soon, Inshallah, be a very good lawyer, just imagine if such a case comes to you and you had to defend a person like Malik, what would you think about this case ?

    Larkiwalay (our Indian bloggers) …

    It’s not fair not to listen to your views on this happening news.

    Come on guys … Kuchh Tu Bolo.

    BTW, I liked the name “Shoania”, more like “Brangilina” and then “Saifeena” 😆

  6. #6 by 420 on April 6, 2010 - 12:37 PM

    no doubt shoaib was cheated by that girl. i am sure there are millions of better looking girls he deserves! but my only doubt is, why did he hangout with her? or as per another rumour, he always was hanging out with ayesha and her friend. and ayesha went back home and said she was the cutie! and that is why he married her..

    all said, the indian law is so biased towards women, even BIG people are not immune to this. haryana deputy CM married this lady without divorcing his first wife, and was about to be arrested.he converted to Islam, to evade arrest.

    certainly a big embarassment for shoaib and especially sania’s family!

  7. #7 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 1:15 PM

    420

    LOL at reminding the case of Chand Mohammad formerly Chander Mohan the CM of Haryana State married to Fiza (filmi name) formerly Anudadha Bal
    i, luckily Habib-ur-Rehman, Shahi Imam of the Jama Masjid issued a fatwa nullifying the marriage on the grounds of escapade. Obviously Islam does not permit religion to be made an escape goat to any crime. But, Shoaib Malik’s case is different from Chand Mia Mohammad. 😀

    Even in Pakistan a lot of people try to take refuge under the umbrella of religion. For e.g., all Sunni Muslims are required to pay 2.5% Zakat on their annual savings in the bank and according to the law the bank debits the amount accordingly. But, some people who are aware of the loophole in the system where Shia or people from Fiqa Jafferiya are exempted from the compulsory deduction at source, Sunni Muslims declare themselves as Shia to avoid paying the Zakat. Its a shame that they do this.

    As regards Malik hanging out with Ayesha Siddiqui, we still don’t know the facts about hanging out, yes he did go to their house with Bob Woolmer, Inzamam, Abdul Razzaq and others. Abdul Razzaq denied seeing the girl. Was that a secret or a sinister plan? Yet she claims that some of Malik’s friends saw her and told him that she is fat? This is one sided story. How come Abdul Razzaq and Inzamam did not see her? She tried to bring in Imran Nazir, who is reportedly Malik’s best friend also denied having seen her. So, we really don’t know whether Malik really saw Ayesha or, Maha or was it her sister or someone else?

    I have not once said that Malik is smart, if he was he wouldn’t have ended up in this kinda mess. He is a paindoo and in cricket world he is a meesna who tries various means to fit in among the playing XI. He also tried to revolt against the captains by creating groups and disunity in the team. But, Malik is certainly not capable of threatening Ayesha Siddiqui’s family or offering them $ one million to shut up.

    If you ask this question, why was he always hanging out with Ayesha? My question is why did the Siddiqui family did not mention about Ayesha’s miscarriage before? By talking about it NOW is stooping very low also to curse Malik that he should die of cancer and there should be worms and maggots in Malik’s stomach and blah, blah is definitely beyond decency and certainly sounds like vengeance.

    Btw, 420 has spoken are, you waiting for Varun and newguy?

    LOL @ Assfeena.

    BTW, Shoania can also be “Malirza” by taking boss the sir names 😆

  10. #10 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 3:52 PM

    Malirza sounds like Malir Zada or even Malaria.

    After Shiv Sena it is now BJP’s turn, “BJP vice-president BJP Kulraj said that Sania Mirza is recognized in India and she should think again on her marrying Shoaib.” Is it some kinda threat? What is wrong with these guys?

  11. #11 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 3:57 PM

    Former Pakistan captain and chief selector Aamir Sohail believes the relatively inexperienced batting middle order of Pakistan was a cause for concern ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup being played in the Caribbean later this month.

    Sohail said: “With veterans Shoaib Malik and Younis Khan not in the squad, the middle order looked too fragile. Their task will not be made any easier considering the fact that Pakistan is placed in the same group as the Australians, and a Bangladeshi side that has some of the most thrifty spinners in its ranks. “The bulk of the Pakistan squad is still the same as last year’s tournament, but there is no doubt they will miss the experience of Shoaib Malik and Younis Khan. The inexperienced middle order could be a problem.”

    Younis retired from the shortest version of the game after leading Pakistan to victory in the 2009 T20 World Cup in England while Shoaib Malik has been banned for one year from representing Pakistan by PCB following the recent disastrous tour of Australia. Sohail felt that in the absence of Younis and Malik, captain Shahid Afridi would have to step up to the plate and guide the team around him. “Shahid needs to assess the situation in each match, look at the status of each match and what the wicket is doing. He batted at number three in the semi final and final during the last T20 World Cup and was very successful, but this time around he needs to position himself in the batting order according to the match situation. He should give himself a floating role in the batting order.”

    The former left-handed opener also had a word of caution for the Pakistani fast bowlers who face the prospect of operating on some very flat, bastmen-oriented tracks in the West Indies. “The matches are going to be day matches in hot conditions, so I would expect that the ball will not seam or swing much. The Pakistani pace men will need to be at the top of their game, as in recent times it’s usually been the spinners who have performed consistently.” Ultimately, however, Pakistan will have to play well as a team and this time around there will be no room for a mediocre start. “This time around Pakistan need to start on a positive note and ensure there is absolutely no complacency. They cannot afford to slip up at all. They have a tough group with Australia and Bangladesh and if you make one mistake in a group like this, you could find yourself out of the tournament. Opponents will have analysed the Pakistan team and will be thoroughly prepared.”

    LOL

    Nasir Jamshed was NOT in 10th grade BUT, in 9th grade when he was caught cheating during the board exam………………. amir must know this for record purposes.

  13. #13 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 4:10 PM

    On Amir Sohail’s comment above regarding the Pakistan team’s ‘inexperienced middle order,’ I would say that it is very easy for him to sit back and comment. Earlier he used to comment on the opening conundrum basically wanted to hear praise for himself from other commentators i.e., when Saeed Anwar was his partner they were the best. Saeed Anwar was 75% and Amir Sohail was 25% and that is how it worked. But, Aamir wants to steal the show.

    Secondly, when he was the chief selector, what did he do? NOTHING, he just wagged his tail, rolled over again and again and was patted with a few pleasing words, ‘good boy, good boy’ and they threw the bone at him and he kept sucking and chewing it and kept squeaking to please his masters. Now with a frog in his throat he talks in slow motion like a story teller and behaves like an expert.

    Younus Khan was not a T20 player and neither is Khalid Latif, Salman Butt who are in the squad, so why lament about YK and Shoaib? Why is he not mentioning the name of Imran Nazir and Shahzaib Hasan Khan? I would include him in the team in place of Salman Butt and Khalid Latif any time. Imran Nazir is out of form but, Shahzaib recently played a great innings. Others in the squad such as, Omar Akmal, Hammad Azam may be inexperienced but they are talented.

  14. #14 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 4:30 PM

    RASHID LATIF is a very reliable, dependable, honest and sincere person and I believe his words, I saw him on TV and he said, “the girl whose photograph was on Shoaib’s computer (also in his wallet) was also on his (Rashid Latif’s) computer for a long time and that girl is NOT the girl which is appearing on TV these days and who is being referred as Ayesha (Maha) Siddiqui.”

    When Rashid Latif said this, you can tell from his facial expression and the body language that he is not lying. It must be remembered that Rashid Latif criticized Shoaib Malik with regards to his form and his politics in the team, BUT he is supporting Shoaib Malik here. Even we are doing the same here on this blog. Because, we feel that it is not fair that he is being accused and his passport and cell phone is held by the police, which is pure harassment.

    According to Shoaib Malik and his brother Imran Malik, this girl Ayesha was reportedly Ayesha’s sister and Malik used to address her as APA (older sister)

    When the Siddiqui family tried to drag in Mohammad Azharuddin the former Indian skipper in the mess by saying even Azharuddin knows the family very well, Azhar when asked denied that he never heard the name of Siddiqui family and neither his (Azhar’s) family knows their family. It appears that Ayesha Siddiqui and her family are trying to leave no stone unturned and wants to disrupt Sania and Malik’s marriage.

  15. #15 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 5:02 PM

    LOL this woman minister Firdous Ashaq Awan is funny, she is minister of population welfare, basically “family planning.” She has announced that she will go to Hyderabad and bring the newly wed couple back home (Sialkot) and, when she was asked by the TV compere to tell the viewers what song she will sing when she will see the couple? She ignored that question and said, she will give the newly married couple a gift. Upon asking what that gift is? She said, it will be a family planning kit. 😀 She also announced Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza will become the ambassadors of family planning and will work with her for a few months. The compere insisted on knowing what song she will sing? She still couldn’t think of one. And, then in the background this song was played and m&m photos were displayed as if they are saying these verses:

    Ab chaa hay sir phootay ya maatha, mai nay tou haan ker lee (Sania’s photo)
    Ab Chaa hay lug jaye huth kariyaan mai nay teri baanh pakar lee (Malik’s photo)
    Ab Chaa hay maa roothay ya baba, mai nay tou haan ker lee ………
    mai nay teri baanh pakar lee, mai nay huss kay haami bhurr lee ………

    LATEST HEADLINES ………. SHOAIB MALIK HAS BOUGHT THE HYDERABADI SHERWANI…….. THAT IS A BIG PARESHANI (for Ayesha)

    PML-N workers stage rally to support Shoania wedding
    Updated at: 2223 PST, Tuesday, April 06, 2010

    MULTAN: The activists of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) held a demonstration at the Multan Press Club in a show of support for Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza ahead of their planned marriage on April 15.

    The demonstrators said that love would finally prevail no matter what the enemies did. They were chanting slogans of “Welcome Welcome Sania, Shoaib welcome”

    They were of the view that Sania would be the daughter-in-law of entire Pakistan after her marriage with Shoaib.

    In addition, the protestors slammed the registration of an FIR against Shoaib and seizing of his passport.

    Shahi Imam of Kolkata Mosque issues Fatwa

    The Sania-Shoaib-Ayesha saga took an interesting turn on Tuesday, as Shahi Imam of Tipu Sultan Mosque in Kolkata Syed Noor-ur-Rehman Barkati issued a “fatwa” against Shoaib Malik.

    Barkati issued the fatwa saying Shoaib and Ayesha were husband-wife, as they had married over telephone. He also said that the Nikkah was valid according to the Islamic law.

    “If Shoaib accepts the nikah, no problem. But if he denies, he will be out of the Muslim society”, said the Imam, who is known for issuing such diktats, which were never given any importance.

    khansahab

    Today’s debate on Duniya TV she was again invited along with another Dr. Farzana Bari and it was very interesting. The compere (can’t remember his name) showed clips of Indian movie VEER ZARA and the dialogues and then asked these two ladies to comment. Mind you this Fardouse Ashak Awan holds a medical degree, she is a doctor. I cannot sum up all that here because right now I am too tired, I have been doing a lot of work as well as blogging and listening to those TV programmes.

    Shoaib Malik’s lawyer in India is one Mrs. Meena and she said that Shoaib Malik cannot be charged under the Indian law and his marriage will take place as scheduled. She confirmed that telephonic nikah is OK under the Islamic law provided there are witnesses (there aren’t any in Malak’s case) and then that has to be processed through the system i.e., a nikahnama must be prepared and REGISTERED (this one is not registered) or, there must be pictorial or photographic proof of the event such as ceremonies either in video or a photo. There aren’t any videos or photos with Malak and Ayesha together. There is a video in which the mother or the sister is hugging Malik at some residence which is not known to anyone, perhaps it is their residence. In any case the Indian law permits a Muslim male to marry more than one wife without her consent.

    According to Pakistani law, the man must obtain consent from the first wife before marrying the second. This amendment was perhaps the 8th amendment during Ayub Khan’s time. Whereas, Pakistani lawyer Farooq whatever his full name is, reportedly he is after Shoaib Malik and kept saying that Malik can be jailed and punished according to the Hudood ordnance. If that is the case then how come Imran Khan is spared from his relationship with SITA? Reportedly he had a daughter with her.

  20. #20 by amir on April 6, 2010 - 7:28 PM

    Malik must say thanks to sania for making him such an important person. In my opinion this saddique family is a big scam. In our indo pak culture it is not possible that son in law goes to his wife,s home and wife goes out as Razzaq confirmed it. And then Saddiques also never explained that why aysha was not staying with her in laws after mariage. JAVED A KHAN lol @ Nasir Jamshed and his ninth class. He is released from jail on RS. 20000 bail 2day. Cant believe that yeh khota abhi tak nowein jamaat mein hi hai.

  21. #21 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 6, 2010 - 7:50 PM

    khansahab

    AS regards that Fatwa, I don’t take it seriously because they keep giving Fatwas according to their whims and wishes.

    On one hand these Mullahs say that Muslims must not deviate from Sunnah and Quran and wherever it suits them they take a short cut and say this is according to Sunnah and this is NOT according to Sunnah.

    For example they say taking photographs is HARAM whereas, it is absolutely important in today’s world for passports and ID’s. Those who don’t travel insist on not taking photographs, those who have to obtain an ID and they cannot avoid it, they say for this purpose it is OK.

    The Saudi government (until recently, I am not sure about now) did not allow women to drive a car and did not issue driving license by saying it is un-Islamic for them to drive. How ridiculous, they can sit in the car and be driven by their own men or unknown drivers. And, women in the days of our Prophet used to ride on camel’s back all alone, as that was the only mode of transportation. There is a whole story about the Prophet wife was lost in the desert when she was with a caravan and riding her camel and was left behind, but never before or after that he said, women must not ride on camel’s back.

    Some believe very strongly that men should not hear the voice of any woman rather it is not allowed to hear the females voice according to their own interpretation and they use the religion by saying there is a Al-Hadith. It may have been said, to keep their voices low for various reasons. That is something to do with morality, ethics and mannerism etc. but, it is not forbidden. Neither the Niqaab or the Shuttle Cork Burqa is allowed in Islam, people just force their wives to wear them it is a cultural thing but, not religous. In fact what I have heard is HIJAAB is allowed or its a must, but Niqaab is not allowed because, the husband or the father must know who is coming into his house. There could be a man wearing a burqa to come and meet his wife or daughter, so that is why Niqaab is not allowed.

    How come the Mullah say that on telephone the nikah is OK? Were there telephones during that time? Because, some say women can ride a camel but not a car. Just because, car was not there during that time and it cannot fall into the category of legal according to Islamic law, then how come nikah on telephone is OK?

    In most marriages among Muslims the Vakils or the agents of the bride and groom goes to the Zanana and tell her that she is going to be married to so and so and whether she accepts or not? Some brides say Yes, some are so shy or crying that they don’t utter a word and someone from the ladies shout, OK, she said, it is OK or YES, qabool hai etc. and there you go the nikah is complete. Whereas, the real Islamic way is the girl must firmly and clearly say Yes, I accept.

    These days the marriages among the educated people are taking place in the same hall, the bride and groom sit next to each other and the nikah is performed in front of the audience and they both accept loudly and clearly.

    There are many more KHOTAS in Pakastan. The biggest one is holding the top most post and he never graduated, in fact he spent 8 years in St. Patrick’s College in Karachi to complete is 2 years Inter and 2 years BA, and never passed. That Jamshed Dasti guy also got a fake degree in Islamiyaat. There are more than 49% senators who are illiterate and no one bats an eyelid. The law has been amended by the khotas i.e., to have a uni degree for such cases is no more compulsory.

    Munir sahab

    What I don’t understand is after all the politics Malik has been associated with, how can we expect him to turn over a new leaf when it comes to Ayesha Siddiqui? I mean, this guy has apparently been behind much of the problems in the team and the dressing room. You might be saying that he is different in his personal life than his professional life, which in my opinion is improbable.

    I remember Javed A Khan saying that he knows someone who knows the Siddiqui family really well, and that they are very rich people and Malik was attracted to their noble background and wealth. I think Javed A Khan is so upset at the Siddiqui’s grievous statements about miscarriage/intimacy and the reaction of the Hindu parties, that he is supporting Malik. Because earlier he said that Malik has married this girl over the phone and ruined her life. Javed A Khan, perhaps I did not interpret your past comments re Malik & the Siddiquis properly?

    The way the mind of a paindoo works, is that he is very stupid when it comes to studying and getting degrees, but his mind works very craftily when it comes to playing politics, encouraging corruption, match-fixing, jealousy, regionalism, uncouthness etc. That is why I don’t believe Malik is innocent. I am NOT saying that the Siddiquis are 100% honest and scrupulous, but I see Malik in a more negative light because he has backtracked on statements and his refusal to give clear and consistent statements.
    Would you consider Malik to be really stupid? I think he is stupid in that I don’t see him getting excellent marks in exams, but when it comes to “chalaaki” and “meesnapan” the media has projected him as some kind of genius.

    Regarding this couple that got married, they are just normal Punjabi families. No one owes money to anyone else, but the fact that they are both Punjabi, probably helped. In Urdu Speaking culture, if the groom is less educated or less refined, the girl’s parents would NEVER say yes regardless of whether the groom is Urdu Speaking, or not. But in Punjabi culture, the fact that he is Punjabi would help and his relative lack of education and sophistication would become a “side” issue. This is why Punjabis are generally considered to be more parochial and regional minded.

    LOL, I would blame the culture that allows such marriages to happen. I would not blame the boy or the girl, but the way of life. Because I see that as an inequality, and where there is inequality there will always be problems and tension. Plus, it was not a love marriage. If it was a love marriage then one can say that “All is fair in love and war”.

    If a case came to me re the Malik issue, I would (and all lawyers) would look at the quality of evidence. Here, from Malik’s side, we have the statements of some team members, we have Imran Malak’s statement, we have the supposed “bride’s” photo but we don’t have much else. From Ayesha’s side, we have the name and address of the Mullah who supervised the Nikah, we have the Nikah certificate with Malik’s signature, evidence to say the the parties knew each other closely since 2000, plus the biggest asset to her case is that she has maintained clarity and consistency in her statements whereas Malik and chopped and changed.

    Now, the way a UK court would assess this, is on a balance of probabilities, is it more likely than not that Malik was duped into this “marriage”? To illustrate numerically, the court needs to be satisfied 51% or more, that he was duped into this marriage. WHAT WAS SO TEMPTING, SO FORCEFUL, THAT HE SAID “YES” DESPITE NOT EVEN KNOWING HOW THE GIRL LOOKS LIKE? IF HE CONSIDERS LOOKS TO BE IMPORTANT WHY WOULD HE SAY “YES” WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE GIRL AT LEAST A FEW WEEKS BEFORE THE NIKAH? IF HE IS SAYING HE WAS IN “LOVE” THEN HOW CAN HE BE IN LOVE WITHOUT LOOKING AT THE GIRL AND MEETING HER IN PERSON? I don’t believe anyone in this world is that stupid. I mean, I think in the 80s and 90s Bollywood may have made some movies where hero and heroine communicate through letters and fall in love without actually looking at each other but it does not work like that in real life.

    So now, let me throw the question to you, if you were the judge would you say there is a 51% chance or more that this guy was fooled into marrying this girl?

    I am not denying what I had said before about Malik’s marriage with Ayesha Siddiqui and, yes you are right that, I have also made a reference that someone here I know he is from Hyderabad and I told you what he told me (wrote on the blog or may have also emailed you) that Malik has ruined Ayesha Siddiqui’s life. That is one of the reasons that I started the thread like this: “PERCEPTION can always be deluded by misrepresentation of facts. I always love to quote this expression in situations were there is any doubt in understanding a problem or a situation, “A mind can only see what it is prepared to see.”

    When the Siddiqui family were presenting their story they were presenting it nicely and decently and it appeared that they are the victims. However, it was a one sided story and based on that information my perception about this case was different. Now, they are not so nice and they are coming up with new stories such as “miscarriage, threats, bribe etc.,” which they never talked before, also they are stooping very low.

    My views about Malik’s cricket and his petty politics are still the same and that is another story. I want to be fair and based on the new information my perception about this personal matter has changed. I wouldn’t have discussed this matter on a public forum but, now it is not a public issue but, it has become a national issue hence I wrote this thread.

    As regards nikahnama, since the marriage was conducted over the phone, there are no witnesses from Malik’s side and when he went to Hyderabad after a few years with the team, then he visited their house and reportedly then, they got that nikahnama signed. Once again there are no witnesses from Malik’s side. He is not denying signing that paper but, it is blank, there is no contract. So far Malik is right but, I don’t know how the events unfold. Because, there is a technical flaw here and under the Indian penal code he may get into trouble if proven guilty, because the Siddiqui family have filed the case under section 402 and if he is proven guilty he will be declared 420 and can be sentenced for 7 years in jail.

    If he had accepted the marriage with Ayesha the Indian law cannot penalize him or punish him. Because, as a Muslim he is allowed to marry second, third or even fourth time. That is why I have said, if he had earlier sorted out this problem he would have been out of this mess in which he is knee deep now and go deeper if the case takes a twist and a turn. However, his marriage with Sania Mirza cannot be stopped under any circumstances, even the judgment goes against him, he can be released on bail, get married and then he may be sentenced IF PROVEN GUILTY. But, in that case will Sania wait for him for 7 years?

    That is why I have said before, ‘there are many a slip between the cup and the lip.’
    Apparently, it looks like Malik will come out clean but, you never know what the Indian judiciary will do? It all depends on the report of the 5 committees that have been established in which they are investigating very comprehensively and if Ayesha’s claims are correct that Malik took her to such and such hotel and where she was consummated and got pregnant and there was a real miscarriage and if there is any evidence in the hospital or wherever, then he will be in trouble because, they want to conduct tests in forensic labs too. And, I am still not sure whether Malik is telling all the truth or still hiding some information?

    I have also heard Rashid Latif’s interview in which he confirmed that the photo Malik carried in his wallet for so many years and saved it on his computer – even Rashid Latif had that photo for a few years – that girl was different from the current photo of Ayesha that is being shown on TV. Calling someone ugly is not the right thing but, she is pretty ordinary and I don’t think Malik could have fallen for her or carried her photo in his wallet for so many years.

    Malik said on TV that he was 18 when he started this chatting on the Internet and the photo that was sent to him was of another (beautiful) girl. I can imagine at that age there are so many people (girls and boys both) got hooked-up on the msn chatting and on various desi chat rooms. I know a few cases and 10-12 years ago chatting business was very new and sounded very real and those involved got very excited and emotional. So, I don’t blame Malik if he got involved, excited and emotional. But he is really unlucky if he has been deceived and cheated. There are a lot of people who say that people have sent someone else’s photo only to get some kinda commitment from the other party. I have also heard about people after seeing each other got shocked and called off their engagements / commitments because one person was cheating and deceiving the other person.

    LOL, I just heard on news that now the bookies have placed betting on the marriage amounting into millions of dollars. But, I am surprised that Zardari is not demanding his cut 10% 😀

    Khansahab …

    Let me, first of all, start with my honest answer to your question. If I was the judge, I would definitely say that there are more then 51% chances that Malik was fooled/ duped into marrying this girl.

    What else would you call someone who shows the pictures of her sister (or may be even her friend) and tells the guy that this is she ? And how about Malik visiting their home and was introduced to same (ordinary looking) girl as NOT Ayesha but sister whom Malik called ‘Apa’ (elder sister) ?

    Yes off course Malik is stupid as he was deceived into calling his own ‘wife’ as ‘Apa’, because that girl herself played the role of her own sister.

    I have huge respect for Rashid Latif as a person and even he confirmed that this girl on TV is not the same whose pictures Malik was carrying, as his wife.

    Just imagine the stupidity or hopelessness of a guy who is carrying pictures of a wrong girl in his wallet as his wife ?

    I mean for god sake peoples, this is an open and shut case of deceit, deception, cheating and forgery done by this girl (Ayesha/ Maha/ etc.).

    It is so obvious that no one would have gone after the actual looks of this girl Ayesha, so she lured Malik into a relation (may be even sexual) by showing her fake ‘beautiful’ pictures of someone else.

    Would this qualifies as duping or not ? I say, absolutely.

    Now coming back to the UK couple, using your lawyer charms you have very efficiently tried to evade my direct question by blaming culture, system and way of life. Well, let me tell you what I think about that. To me, 100% blame lies with the ‘educated’ girl and her family because they ‘accepted’ the boy whom they imported directly from Lahore and used as a scapegoat to ‘Thopo’ their daughter on him. While the boy just-got-lucky and won a visa lottery along with a sexy, hot, educated, UK girl. Now why should we get jealous with someone like that ? 😉

    Moreover, I personally know an Urdu speaking family from Karachi who has ‘imported’ a ‘Dulha’ from UAE for their daughter in USA, although I would say that they were more or less compatible in their education/ looks, but it was an arranged marriage within family. So we can not say that it’s a phenomenon prevailing only in a certain culture. BTW, within my own family, being Pathans, we prefer to have our marriages within our own families/ cultures, but it does not mean that we will force such marriages, because many of my relatives have married outside their families, but given a choice we prefer within family.

    Finally, let me ask you another question, don’t all the lawyers, defend someone who they knew is the actual offender/ criminal as part of their profession ??

    Shoaib malik has signed the divorce paper and now he is free to mary Mirza. In response the saddiquis has withdrawn the case against malik. According to reports community elders met both malik/mirza and saddiqui famlies and told them that thier public spat is making bad name for comunity after which Malik agreed to sign divorce paper and also paid aysha rs 15000 as memtainance.

  28. #28 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 7, 2010 - 3:29 PM

    I think the elders from both sides of the families did a good job to put this farcical drama to an end, ALL IS WELL THAT ENDS WELL……….. !

    The synthesis of this fiasco or as some call it a melodrama is:

    1. Malik is a proven Paindoo now, what he should have done 6-7 years ago, he did that now. Subha ka bhoola, shaam ko ghar aye tou usko bhoola nahee kehtay balkay…. Chewaib Mullick kehtay hain ! 😀
    2. The Siddiquis who earlier got too many sympathies from many including myself, have been exposed and are not so pious as they appeared earlier.
    3. It is a lesson for so many teenagers and those in early twenties to be wary of the dangers of Internet chatting and in getting duped such as our Bhola Malik.
    4. Hats off to Sania Mirza and her family to stick to their decision in accepting Malik as a groom and, as a son-in-law in view of the recent mess that was more like washing the dirty laundry in public.
    5. Hats off to the elders of both families to solve this problem amicably which is an honourable exit for Malik.
    6. Duniya huss rehi thee kay Indians and Pakistanis, especially Muslims cannot do anything without fighting, hence it was a good decision to resolve it amicably.
    7. The case was registered under Indian penal code section 402 which could have gone against Malik and if he was found guilty, could have gone to prison for up to 7 years.
    8. If Malik was sentenced even with a reduced sentence, not only the relations between Malik and Sania had gone sour and cold, but the relations between India and Pakistan could have gone extremely BAD.
    9. Since Malik has accepted signing the nikahnama be it a few years after the telephonic nikah, he had no way to exit honourably except to give a divorce, the route through the court may have lead him victory but, the chances of failing and losing were also there besides, it would have dragged for a long period of time.
    10. Malik should thank his stars ‘coz that Rs.15,000 he paid as Mehr or Talaaq fees, is peanuts, he should go and donate a lot more than that among the poor, needy and well-wishers and sacrifice a goat with a big BUTT 😀

    Showdown at SHOAINA
    AssUp at ASSFEENA

    As Shoaib Malik’s case came to an end,
    Asaf and Veena’s case took up an ugly turn.

    Reportedly Asaf’s cheques given to Veena Malik in settlement for the case, wherein he reportedly took her money or she gave him the money to bail him out and later demanded it back by saying that it was a loan. The cheques issued by Asaf bounced back and she has filed a legal suit against him for 1.3 crore rupees.

    Ek na ek case tou limelight may rehna chahiyeh na, otherwise Pakastan cricket team is not Pakastan team. 😀 It is full of dramay baaz and their dramaybaazi.

    Possibility of DNA test made Shoaib to divorce Ayesha?

    Hyderabad: The possibility of a DNA test may have made Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik to finally divorce Ayesha Siddiqui.

    Police is understood to have sounded Malik about the DNA test after Ayesha reportedly gave more material to buttress her case.

    Ayesha claimed that she had married 28-year-old Shoaib in 2005. Shoaib admitted to the ‘nikahnama’ but claimed that he had been tricked into the marriage.

    Sources close to the Siddiqui family said that Ayesha was upset with Shoaib calling her an elder sister while addressing the media along with Sania.

    It was only after that incident that Ayesha came out with more material about her relationship with the Pakistani cricketer, they said.

    Shoaib is all set to marry Sania on April 15.

  31. #31 by khansahab on April 7, 2010 - 6:13 PM

    This is from the Telegraph, UK:

    Mr Malik, 28, made the confession after the Muslim woman he wed seven years ago handed her wedding night bed clothes to police for forensic testing to prove their marriage had been consummated. He said a divorce settlement had now been agreed.

  32. #32 by khansahab on April 7, 2010 - 8:45 PM

    Munir sahab

    I didn’t evade your question using my lawyer charm! I don’t blame the girl or the boy because in their culture it is a very normal thing. I blame the culture.

    I don’t know whether it is jealousy, or what it is. I am very blessed Alhamdulillah that I can get a better looking girl than that particular girl. But, yes, I suppose jealousy has something to do with it. Actually I am more concerned that the guy is ugly and he has got a decent looking girl. This reason concerns me more than the cultural problems and the incompatibility of education/sophistication.

    The whole problem with Malik and Ayesha arose because Malik was not accepting they were married. Now, it seems to me Malik has lost this battle. He has divorced her which is what she wanted. He has accepted that they were married. He was previously denying that the marriage ever took place. Then, when the marriage certificate was produced, he came up with this story that he was duped into marriage and hence the marriage is invalid, and he will not divorce this girl because there is no marriage to begin with. But today he has done something which negates everything he has said over the past few days.

    Ayesha should forgive and forget now, and move on. And Malik needs to become a more straightforward and decent person.

    What my parents say is that education and family background is the most important thing. My father has previously hinted on a few occasions that a “Pathan” would be preferable to him, but this is all subject to the education and family. In fact, if I have to choose between a Pathan girl, say, or a Sindhi or Punjabi girl, I will probably go for who I like the most as a person (looks would help), not who is Pathan or Punjabi. My parents would be the same and for them ethnicity is not a big issue. I don’t know whether one of the reasons for this is because we don’t know whether we are Pathan, Urdu Speaking, or both. However, we would definitely not have a preference for family members or people with the same mother tongue.

    Your question about the lawyers is technically unsound because the vast majority of professionals your question relates to, are criminal lawyers who form only a minor proportion of the legal fraternity. Whereas I don’t know how the system works in other jurisdictions, in England and Wales, the court’s fact finding techniques, the investigatory powers of the police, medical evidence etc are so accurate and flawless, that the truth is usually found in the end. So, this goes a long way to establish that, the guilty are punished and the innocent are released, or acquitted if a jury is involved.
    When it comes to accepting instructions from clients, one of the core duties for lawyers is not to deceive or mislead the court. It is admitted that there is scope for deception and dishonesty in this profession. However the scope is not any less or insignificant than say, there is in accountancy, banking or business. Every year hundreds of lawyers are penalised for dishonesty offences.

    Coming back to my point about receiving instructions, barely anyone would advise a lawyer that he is indeed guilty. It does not work like that in this country. The penalties for deceiving the court are hefty and hence it is not in the lawyer’s interest to defend a client who has admitted he is guilty. Rather, a guilty client is advised to plead guilty and obtain a more lenient sentence than it would have been if he had pleaded not guilty.

    If you are paying a lawyer for his services, he will make money anyway based on the advice he has provided you. It does not matter what advice he gives you. If you tell him that, “I am guilty but I want you to say I am innocent”, he will tell you 2 things:

    1) He cannot mislead the court in any way and it is discretionary whether he would report the client to the police
    2) Innocence is something that is proven due to the quality of evidence, the reasonableness of behaviour of all sides etc. The lawyer cannot wave a magic wand and produce a suitable verdict.

    Wow….Both are SM & SM. Both are Stars. Both are neighbors.Its an excellent start. This wedding can be the gateway of friendship era for both neighbor countries, fought many wars. I read many stories in which a marriage joins their angry ancestors.

    Pakistan and India must build good relations, as it is fruitful for both. They must trade with each other. There are many goods that can be traded to both countries.

    YAE LO JEE EK AUR NAYA SHOSHA

    Shoaib, Sania already married in Dubai?

    Wednesday, 7 Apr, 2010 10:07 am

    HYDERABAD : At a time when cricketer Shoaib Malik is fighting to clear his name off the allegations of marrying another Hyderabadi girl Ayesha Siddiqui, speculations are rife that the cricketer and the Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza tied the knot in Dubai before Shoaib landed in India a week ago, Indian media reported.

    Since Malik is staying at Sania’s house in Hyderabad, it has been assumed that the Taj Krishna hotel has been booked not for the Nikah, but for a reception, scheduled to take place on April 15.

    Sania’s wedding card, which has only the reception date, has also added fuel to the fire in the case. The news came at a time when several people claimed that the date of marriage would be postponed.

    Local community members, however, have suggested that Shoaib Malik’s staying at the tennis ace’s house prior to the wedding and Sania’s sticking to the cricketer despite all the allegations, prove the fact that they are already married.

    “It is impractical to assume that the Mirzas and the Maliks did not expect trouble after making this announcement of an Indo-Pak marriage that too with a Pakistani national who had a Hyderabad connection. It is very likely that they possibly got married before going public with their wedding announcement,’’ said a person close to the Mirza family.

    I guess this is all about me. 😀

    Not only during the day, even at night time I keep a big bottle of water besides me on the bedside table and keep drinking. Unlike other people who have bladder problems if they drink water at night, I sleep very well, in fact I drink water at night while my eyes are closed and I am half asleep, so there is no discontinuation of sleep.

    And, I eat breakfast not like a King but, like a PIG. 😀 My breakfast is very unusual for many people but, this is the way I have been eating since my childhood. Real heavy breakfast with 2-3 Parathas, omelets, keema or, kebabs, yogurt, halwa or jam and tea. A lot of people have problems digesting heavy food but, I have none my metabolism rate is high and I burn calories with ease even if I don’t exercise, jalnay walay jala kerain 😀 I eat a lot of fish and good quality meat like, fillet Mignon, tenderloin steaks with customized sauces and self-created variety of Avocado salads. When it comes to Nihari I don’t use just any meat like most people or restaurants do, I buy the finest quality BONG or shanks, Jarret de Boeuf.

    Well no comments on rest of the things because I don’t compare myself with others, but I thank God for everything that He gave me, instead of looking above me I look at those who are poorer than me, so I am really grateful to God for giving me a good health and life in general. I may forgive but, I can’t forget that is because I am not old like you 😀 and I have an excellent memory like elephants. Take care.

  38. #38 by Mohammed Munir on April 8, 2010 - 8:35 AM

    Javed …

    Maashallah … You are LUCKY !!

    I like eating too, but my metabolism rate is not very high like you, so I have to workout to burn any extra calories. But I still eat 😛

    Yes you are right, when we see peoples below us we should really thank God for our blessings.

  39. #39 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 9, 2010 - 6:19 PM

    From now onwards we will create a BLANK THREAD for those who do not wish to comment 😉 That’s because I don’t see any comment during these two days! I was very busy just before the week-end, hence I could not write. TGIF and now hopefully there will be some time to blog during this week-end. But, there is hardly any cricket going around except for preparation for the T20 WC.

    Technically and in reality Shoania has tied a knot. Today was their Nikah, Shoaib by virtue of that earlier blooper is being married for the second time. Anyways, WE WISH HIM AND SANIA A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE LIFE AND HOPEFULLY THEY WILL HAVE SOME REAL GOOD “SPORTY” OFF SPRINGS. 😀

    PS

    According to Daily DAWN of Karachi, the families of Malik and Sania denied any changes in the scheduled wedding which is taking place on April 15, 2010. Reportedly police has set up 3 tier barricades in front of Sania’s house to avoid the media personnel barging into their house.

    Shoaib gave false information in divorce paper?

    HYDERABAD: Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, who is set to marry Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza, could land in fresh trouble for furnishing false information while giving divorce to his first wife Ayesha Siddiqui, according to official documents.

    The divorce and agreement papers, which Shoaib signed April 7, have the name of his late father as Malik Saleem Hussain while the invitation for the April 15 wedding reception carries the name of his father as Malik Faqeer Hussain, the documents show.

    According to legal experts, Shoaib could face legal action if Ayesha’s family files a case against him on charges of furnishing false information.

    The wrong name given in divorce certificate and the agreement signed on Rs 100 stamp paper could be yet another attempt by Shoaib to show that he did not marry Ayesha, they said.

  41. #41 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 10, 2010 - 1:34 PM

    LOL

    I knew khansahab would pick up this news item about Malik’s father’s name. I don’t understand whether it is Malik’s deliberate attempt or is it one of his “yet another conniving and calculated stupidity?” Is he competing against Ayesha who has another name called Maha. According to reports, most Hyderabadis have two names, one is their given name which is official and, there is another “gharailoo naam” which is more like a nick name, totally and completely different from the real name. I don’t understand why but, this is reportedly a practice among most Hyderabadi Muslims.

    Danish Kaneria rejects England match-fixing claims

    Pakistan’s firebrand leg spinner, Danish Kaneria, has rejected allegations that he is under investigation by Essex police for match-fixing while playing for the country side during England’s domestic championship.

    “My cricketing career is completely unstained and I’m surprised at such allegations,” said Kaneria, who is yet to join his county side as the season gets underway. The delay in his departure has given the British media enough fuel to speculate that Kaneria is one of the two players under investigation for ‘match irregularities’ by local police.

    A statement from Essex Police read: “Following allegations received about two Essex County Cricket players involved in match irregularities, we have initiated an investigation and are working closely with Essex County Cricket Club and the English Cricket Board.”

    The speculations, if true, will come as a big blow for the Pakistan Cricket Board which has already banned and fined players for indiscipline.

    No more character in cricket

    The love triangle came full circle and perished under its own weight. Two countries and its citizens were brought to the brink by three idiots who ultimately declared that ‘all is well’ and walked away to their dark secrets. And Islamic edicts were mauled by armchair analysts ranging from those who may never have read the Quran and Hadith, to the scholarly who gave sweeping statements that varied in their intensity.

    At the end of the day, the Shoaib-Sania-Ayesha/Maha debacle was yet another incident involving a Pakistani cricketer getting himself into a jam and embarrassing the country. Not that the cricket team should be blamed entirely for maligning our name, or what’s left of it – that crown is worn by the king and his courtiers.

    Still, it must be said that Shoaib Malik could have handled this situation differently. Once it turned out that Ayesha was the one on the other end of the line during his telephonic affair, all Malik had to do was state that he had been deceived, express sorrow at the misunderstanding, and accede to Ayesha’s request for a divorce. A signed paper is just a signed paper if there are to be no consequences whatsoever. As such, it was always a win-win situation for Malik. No stories need have come out of the situation, no exposes about nights spent at hotels, no unnecessary innuendos about a decade-old relationship.

    But it seems our cricketers have become so arrogant that Malik never thought of ending the issue with the other woman quietly, when all she wanted was a separation.

    This lack of discretion, which indicates a disregard for family, fans, and the national image, saddens me the most. Mind you, I’m not surprised, just plain saddened. Our cricketers, once titled ambassadors of goodwill, have become cowboys roaming the Wild West, shooting at first sight and not even bothering to bury the dead.

    Much as I avoid saying it for fear of being labeled discriminatory or elitist, the behaviour of our cricketers nowadays has to do with education and upbringing. (Let me be on the record here that I grew up in a lower-middle-class family, though I was lucky enough to have educated, principled, and ethical parents and good teachers.)

    I think it’s time to admit that transgressions and indiscretions have become too common in Pakistani cricket, both on and off the field, by both cricketers and the management. Yes, there have been indiscretions in the past as well, some of a serious nature, but these were restricted to the odd clown. Right up to the 1970s, the majority of the cricket coterie comprised Majid, Sadiq, Zaheer, Asif, Mushtaq Mohammad, Wasim Raja, Saleem Altaf, Asif Masood, Intikhab Alam, Wasim Bari, Pervez Sajjad, Iqbal Qasim, Haroon Rasheed, etc.

    A few of them may or may not have had their questionable moments, but they were all essentially family men; in other words, decent chaps, presentable on and off the field. They played cricket while attending university and continuing to listen to their elders. The team in their time had character when it wore the green and gold.

    There were, of course, odd fellows such as Sarfraz, Illyas, and Aftab Gul, but they were a minority, negligible like the family truant among a large family.

    In the 1980s and 1990s, things began to change. More entrants to the game arrived having played hokey from school. Early money meant less time to become mature and worldly wise. With money came more cricket; more cricket meant less time at home; more frequent tours in seductive societies meant easy access to drugs, girls, and quick cash.

    I believe our cricketers’ character changed in the year 1976, when the team stood as one and defied the management over pay. The year Packer hatched plans for breakaway cricket that made our cricketers aware of their true worth and marketing potential. The year Imran Khan and Javed Miandad became role models without meaning to, making teenagers leave books for bats, fascinated with the world of glamour and opportunity that the duo represented. Miandad broke the mould by mysteriously eloping while the world searched for him for more than two days, and Khan was photographed at Ascot with the rich, famous, and glamorous. Our cricketers had stepped out in the open.

    Ironically, Miandad and Khan led Pakistan cricket to great heights, individually and collectively. But in the process, the fabric of self-regulation was torn to bits. The two most brilliant, talented, and charismatic players led private lives that influenced a generation that did not have the strong mental discipline and family foundation that they had. What was left was taken care of by the modalities of offshore cricket, where the pitch was a sidelight as big boys played off it. Disco lights and starry nights prevailed.

    By end of the 1990s, we saw most of our cricketers, still brilliant as ever in the art of bowling and batting, living lives of moral degradation, steeped in the world of sex, lies, and drugs. The family man with high morals had become the minority in the team.

    There were many incidents: at Granada, four of our more famous names were allegedly busted for drugs; in Johannesburg, the busted up bodies of two cricketers who claimed to have been mugged outside their hotel, but were seen being thrown out of a nightclub. On both occasions, a Test match was delayed by a day. In Zimbabwe, there were revelations of match fixing; across the world our cricketers were caught ball tampering more often than others.

    Today, we are paying for the cowardly, selfish management of those times that failed to fire the offenders when they were still a minority. Today, relatively uneducated, arrogant, young people, who believe they know what is best for them, make their own marriages over the internet with a pretty face. No need for back ground or character checks. After all, how can they go wrong when they earn in seven figures, are chased for autographs, move in a circle that hails them for their independence and antics, and consider conservative influences as archaic.

    Perhaps they are not to blame, since the system around them has become morally corrupt. The only hope for the future is that the PCB runs a finishing school where every aspiring national cricketer is given a six-month course in values and ethics. But before that, we have to have a similar finishing school for the PCB management and their elders.

    Sohaib Alvi in his article, “No more character in cricket” echoes Javed A Khan and discusses how lack of education and decent family upbringing is ruining cricket in the country.

  45. #45 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 10, 2010 - 8:13 PM

    khansahab

    Shoaib Alvi has very diplomatically excluded the name of Imran Khan from the list of Sarfaraz and the Granada four only because Imran is Oxford educated and has a big political clout behind him but, his affairs were no less than Shoaib Malik and Asaf Veena’ case. Imran has so far been denying his relationship with Sita and the daughter in question just like Shoaib Malik did about his marriage with Ayesha, the only difference is Malik went back in the same backyard whereas, Imran is clever enough not to go back to Sita’s World.

    The only player who is above all controversies is JAVED MIANDAD, he was not involved in betting, match fixing, drugs, alcohol or girls, he got married and his only passion was and still is Cricket and he has been the most honest, loyal and sincere player so far. No one can match Javed Miandad’s guts. They hate him because he is not that educated, but he upbringing seems to be much better than most of the players. If he was Oxford or Cambridge educated he would have been a different person.

  46. #46 by M. Y. Kasim on April 10, 2010 - 8:43 PM

    The article above is the most comprehensive one. Without going into details and mud-slinging, it portrays the sad truth where our country in general and cricket in particular is headed. I had spoken of giving a six-month course to all the cricketers, established and aspiring a long time ago so that these un-educated, un-cultured and rough boys knows what is expected of them.

    I think India already has an institution in Pune to fine trim these players although, Indians are far more educated, cultured and refined than their Pakistani counter-parts.

    It is true that the whole country has gone bankrupt as far as morals is concerned but atleast, we should start somewhere and the sportsmen in general and cricketers in particlar are the ones who go abroad and represent the country. They have the duty to act and present themselves decently and not bring bad name to the country they represent. They need to be educated and made to realise their responsibility.

  47. #47 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 11, 2010 - 12:52 AM

    Mr. Kasim

    Good to read your comments. I am glad you are following the blog. I am sure our Indian friends on this blog will reconfirm my statement that Dhoni when he played a domestic tournament in Kolkata, could not speak a word of English, he was man of the match and when interviewed he said, I cannot speak English and he spoke in Hindi. But, look at him today, he speaks better than ALL the Pakistani players. Forget about improving English Pakistani players do not bother to learn anything new, that is because of the level of Education is so low in Pakistan. If the President of the country got stuck in B.Com for several years and did not get his degree in Commerce and more than 49% of the MNA’s are literally illiterate and, that Senator Jamshed Dasti who was fired for possessing a fake Master’s Degree in Islamic History (Out of all the subjects, Islamic history?) and he was asked to resign and yesterday I read on the Internet that he has been offered a ticket to stand up in the elections from another constituency and he will be elected unopposed. What a shame.

    That idiot Nasir Jamshed (another Jamshed) who is 20 year old and was caught cheating in his English paper appearing for a 9th grade exam. Later he was released. What do you expect from Asif Zardari and Ijaz Butt?

  48. #48 by Mohammed Munir on April 11, 2010 - 6:34 AM

    A very good article by Shoaib Alvi and also some interesting comments from Javed Khan as well as Kasim Sahab. Although, I agree in-principal with the article contents and the following comments, however, I also hold a rather different approach to the whole issue.

    In a country, where from president to even a peon are corrupt and disloyal and almost every single profession is loaded with irresponsible and dishonest individuals, how and why should we expect our players (Cricketers) to be honest ? It’s genuinely unfortunate but frighteningly true that our leaders, politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen, professionals, military generals, army personals, police and peoples from almost all walks of life are corrupt and untrustworthy. So much so, that even some of the journalists from well known and highly famous TV channels are being pointed at as being dishonest and disloyal.

    Therefore, under such circumstances, it will be purely naïve of us to expect high integrity from these uneducated, impoverished, mostly villagers and illiterate players.

    Simply put, these players are a product of our dishonest system and they can’t be any different.

    Why should only cricketers be honest when the peoples selecting and managing them (PCB) are dishonest to the core.

    I fully agree that the country have given them name, fame, status and all the benefits, but have the country not given these returns to our politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen etc. ?

    Dose the blame entirely rests only with these Cricketers ??

  49. #49 by khansahab on April 11, 2010 - 7:10 AM

    Munir sahab

    I see what you are saying but your comment can be taken to read that all Pakastanis are corrupt and dishonest.

    Also, what is difficult to understand is why the past cricketers in the Imran Khan era were more honest? Why did they genuinely appear to be playing for the country and playing for pride (although later it turned out in the case of Salim Malik that he was playing for money on many occasions)? Why do present cricketers appear to be playing for different motives?

    Apart from Younis Khan, Afridi, Fawad Alam and one or two players, no one really seems to play with passion.

    Sonia Gandhi congrats Shoaib, Sania

    HYDERABAD: Indian Congress President Sonia Gandhi has sent the message of best wishes to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik and tennis star Sania Mirza.

    While talking to SAMAA on Sunday, Mirza’s manager, Richa, has said that the relatives and the friends of Sania gathered at her house where the dance rehearsal for the marriage was held. She informed that special food was prepared for the guests.

    PAKISTANI GUESTS

    According to the Indian media Malik has invited high profile personalities for his marriage ceremony. Federal Minister Firdous Ashiq Awan and other parliamentarians are expected to attend the marriage. Salman Butt, Inzamamul Haq and Rashid Latif are also among the expected guests.

    Mirza family has arranged rooms for guests in different hotels.

    Indian and Pakistani food would be prepared for the guests, it added.

  51. #51 by khansahab on April 11, 2010 - 7:15 AM

    I am surprised Rashid Latif is being invited to Malik’s wedding. That is because Latif has been saying for a long time that Malik, Misbah and Akmal are creating rifts in the team.

    Latif has some family in India so I think this is an excuse for him to visit India and meet his extended family.

    I’m not in love with Sushmita, says Wasim Akram

    NEW DELHI: When love is in the air, how can controversy be far behind? Hot on the heels of the Shoaib Malik-Ayesha Siddiqui-Sania Mirza saga that left a bitter-sweet taste in the mouth, two Pakistani quicks have been in the news for luscious reasons. While the dope-tainted Mohammed Asif is facing heat from his ex-lover and actress-girlfriend Veena Malik, the Sultan of Swing and former Test skipper Wasim Akram is being romantically linked with former Miss Universe Sushmita Sen. A recent report in Mumbai Mirror said Akram and Sushmita were spotted at a Mumbai nightspot and spent an evening in the company of each other. The report quoted an eyewitness account saying: “Akram and Sushmita walked in hand-in-hand at around 11.30 on a Monday night. They booked the bed-by-the-sea table and were seen relaxing. They seemed very comfortable in each other’s company. “Later, a couple of Sushmita’s female friends also joined them. While Akram was acting coy, Sushmita seemed to be in pretty a playful mood and was loud enough to let the world know that she’s very happy with the new man in her life. Both of them stayed together till around 1.45 when the restaurant shut down.” No matter how compelling the Mumbai Mirror report read, in an exclusive chat with espnstar.com on Friday night, Akram has cleared the air, strongly denying he was dating the Bengali beauty. “I have known Sushmita for some time. Yes, I have been with her a couple of times, but if that means I am in love with her, then that’s a very silly assumption,” Akram said. May not be in love, but Akram and Sushmita, who remains ‘single’ by choice, have been ‘professionally’ linked. Both were judges on a reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena a couple of years ago. The chemistry between the two was a hallmark of the TV serial. While Sushmita is a proven movie star, Akram is a face on ESPN-STAR’s star-studded commentary team. “She is just a good friend, nothing more than that,” Akram clarified. The Pak pacer lost his wife Huma in October last year after illness. Sushmita was recently seen cheering for Kolkata team in an Indian Premier League match at the Eden Gardens. Akram is the team’s bowling coach. Meanwhile, Sushmita too has denied any romantic links with Akram. She praised the cricketer and said “he is a wonderful man.”

    Pakistan star Kaneria stunned by corruption probe

    (AFP) – 14 hours ago

    KARACHI — Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria said Saturday he was “surprised and shocked” to see his name linked with a corruption probe launched by English police.
    The Sun newspaper in Britain claimed that the 29-year-old was one of two Essex players being investigated for allegations of “match irregularities”.
    “Kaneria and another Essex player are to be probed following incidents in one-day matches last summer,” the Sun reported on Saturday.
    But Kaneria insisted the allegations were baseless.
    “I woke up to the shocking news on Saturday,” Kaneria told AFP. “The story in the newspaper is baseless. I have played my cricket for Pakistan as well as for Essex, with pride and honesty.”
    Kaneria said he had delayed his return to Essex to feature in a domestic one-day tournament in Pakistan.
    “I told the Essex administration that I would play in a domestic event, so I would not be able to reach there on April 7,” said Kaneria.
    “I try my best for the county and played my role in helping the county return to Division One (of the county championship). For the last two years I have been Essex’s best performer and have never done anything wrong.”
    Kaneria said he is ready to undergo any investigation.
    “No one from Essex has contacted me, but I will be ready to undergo any investigation. I will also take legal advice on such baseless reports.”
    The leg-spinner has taken 254 wickets in 58 Tests since making his debut against England in 2000.

  54. #54 by Mohammed Munir on April 11, 2010 - 8:10 AM

    Khansahab …

    Please don’t misunderstand me, NOT ALL, but regrettably most of them are, and right from top to bottom, I would say.

    Secondly, in my humble opinion, our past cricketers were the replicas of leadership, politicians, and system of their times, while the current players are obviously following the examples of existing leaders and mostly corrupt and dishonest society in general. Another point is that lack of education, proper upbringing, and ‘major-city-atmosphere’ can also be considered as contributing factors. What I mean is that Javed Miandad, Wasim Raja, Imran Khan, Majid Khan, Asif Iqbal, Mushtaq Mohammed there were players coming from Pakistan’s two or three main cities, while today we see every Tom, Dick and Harry is making it to the national side coming from unknown villages and rural areas, where proper grooming is missing. Furthermore, age is also an element because if we select 16, 17 year old teenagers who stop schoolings in hope of making their careers shine, then this is the cost we should be prepared to pay.

  55. #55 by amir on April 11, 2010 - 8:27 AM

    i agree on this that pcb must arange some sort of courses for these cricketers and teach them to speak english and that should be must for all players who got centeral contracts and also who represnt pakistan at junior levels. The other thing what they need to do is to teach these players how to tackle media i dnt knw about other countries but in south africa’s national accademy they got specialists who teaches players how to deal with media. On cricket field our players are very nice guys to play against but suddenly after a days play our cricketers become bad guys in media. As far as honesty is concerned no one can force them to be honest this is our nations problem we r generaly considered greedy and dishonest in every field of life so cnt expect any better frm cricketers. Our whole nation needs a change in this regard.

    PAYAAM (MESSAGE OR OPEN LETTER TO MAHA SIDDIQUI)
    Auron kaa hai payaam aur, Mera Payaam Aur Hai
    Ishq ke dard-mand kaa, tarz-e-kalaam aur Hai

    Maha Siddiqui : The cat is at last out of the bag that there is no “Ayesha Siddiqui”, and that Ayesha was a fictional character. I must say, you are talented. You are a mix of Agatha Christie and Linda Tripp.
    Salaam-e-Ishq., Meri Jaan., Zara Qabool Kar Lo..
    Tum ham se, Pyaar karney ki… Zara see bhool kar lo
    Mera dil be-chain hai.. Hum-safar ke liye..
    Too Masiha Mohobbat ke maaron kaa hai .. Masiha.. O’ Maha..

    I prompose to marry you. Even if you are 251 (and not 250, according to reliable sources) kgs. I am told your medical glasses number is -4.5. (Distance) and reading -1.5. Hmmn. So you use bi-focal medical glasses. These days you can have plastic glasses, though (but they are expensive).
    My bank balance is Rs. 5,000/-. So even if you go to Court under Sec. 498 (A), i.e. harassment / dowry act., at the most you will get Rs. 2,500/- after years of running around courts. I earn money and spend it., cuz if you keep money., the women come and steal it. So its best to enjoy one’s money. Eat the best food. Wear the best clothes. Drive the best bikes. What is the use of saving money.
    Teli Jodey Khatra Khatra
    Kuppa Ludkey Ek Hee Baar.
    Shoaib must have saved penny-penny… and all his savings washed off in one sweep. Kya jhaadu pheri hai.. Maar Dala Rey.
    Your mother Mrs. Farisa Siddiqui was saying the other day : “Main apni bach`chi (aged 40) ko khush dekhna chaahti hoon”. (Tr : I want to see my daughter happy). Sure., I promise you… I will keep you as happy as a jay-bird, 24×7. I can do anything and everything., but I am not good at making money. So I will take care of all Departments of life. You take care of the “financial” or “money” aspect, okay. You can do it alone., or if you want to take the assistance of your mother and father., I have no problems with that. Ek se bhaley do. Do se bhale teen. No problem.
    We will travel to Saudia, Dubai and Singapore. You have been under home-arrest (self-inflicted) for the past many years, so says your Mom. Let us travel around the world singing Mukesh’s famous song with Sharada from Mera Naam Joker : “Around the world in a dollar.. Around the world in a dollar..”
    I am a body builder., and in looks and physical stature., I look like the Incredible Hulk. When I walk, the earth shakes. I will gladly be a “Ghar Damaad”, but your parents must not be too nosey. If they do., they will be caned by me. I have a huge drum in my home. (I will bring it along with me). I place 6-8 bayt-ki chadi (cane) in the water. When someone mis-behaves., I take the wet cane., and beat the person black-and-blue.
    I drive around 100 kms everyday (for fun.. just to show off my body, clothes, hair., glasses and perfume)., but I don’t buy vegetables, mutton, fish, rice and groceries. But I am willing to enter shops that sell accessories, jewelry, clothes… I mean… classy stores… not the small ones in crowded markets.
    In breakfast, I love to eat gurda-kapooras with bread., and soup of a chicken daily. So if you want to be happy, please let me know. Let us embark on a new journey of self-exploration (Atma Darshanam, or Swayam Darshan). I want you to sing this song at the waterfall in Malayasia :
    Aaja – Aayi bahaar – Dil hai bekaraar
    Oh mere., Ali Pahelwaan… Tere bin rahaa naa jaaye !! Aaja !
    Maha : Tumne bahut goo jalaaya hai. Ab kuch insaan bano. If you have obesity problems, no problems. We will jog 10 kms everyday.. .either on the tread-mill or from Rd. No. 1 to Rd. No. 12 Banjara Hills… 5 times up and down. Up and down. Up and down. Drink lots of water., walk / jog for 10 kms., eat reasonably., and erase negative thoughts. Be happy the way God created you. You cant be like Madhubala or Nicole Kidman., so why brood ? Hayn. If you need medical treatment, I will take you to Dr. Majeed Khan, Psychiatrist., Adarsh Nagar., Hyderabad A.P. His Consultation Fee is Rs. 250/-. I am sure, he will take care and help you in your personality-disorder related issues. Stop eating meat, fish, egg. Eat only Daal (Masoor) and Bread (chapatti). Eat lots of Salaad. If you are looking for job., I can have you fixed as a Teacher at Noori Shah Saheb’s School in Ballaguda… (but why will you work ? you are a woman of means now. Maybe you can open your own School., somewhere on the outskirts of Hyderabad : MAHA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL… just like Hala International School, Jeddah where you worked ! I will become the P.T. Teacher).
    Maha : I want to say one verse to you., that sums up your life (upto now).
    Husn ki taseer par., Ghaalib na aa sakta thaa ilm
    Itni naadaani… Jahaan ke saarey daana`on ne kee…
    I must confess, that Shoaib Malik is an extremely handsome, well mannered, composed, cool and confident dude. So it was natural., but you over-reached yourself. Over ambition is great., but one must never go for the over-kill. Aadmi ko hamesha apni auqaat mein rehna chaahiye.
    Take care and have a nice day. Kadumba.
    Yours truly,
    Ali Mian Lardi (Chest : 70 inches)
    Pahelwaan / Body-builder / Athlete
    Barkas – Hyderabad.
    P.S. Free Advice to Sania (Education : Grade IX) : You must learn to respect elders. I agree you are the earning member but its not decent to treat your parents like your chaprasi and naukrani (albeit glorified servants). Respect begets respect. Stardom is transitory, integrity is not. It stays even after death. Sania : You have money and name., but you must read a few good books., and try to be a good human being. Shoaib (Education : Grade V) is a fine human being. I hope his influence would make you a better human being. You must read a few good books. Look beyond. Have a world-view. A world-vision. I am sorry to say… your vision and world-view is very narrow. You are young, and I hope with exposure your horizons and mental sphere will widen. Wish you the very, very best of life… Sania and Shoaib…. May you prosper and bloom always. Wish us a good life too. Ali and Maha (who is NOT Ayesha).
