I have never had a high regard for the press in India… to me they are the worst.. a bunch of intellectual pimps and prostitutes! I had to work with some of these folks when I was trying to sell an IPO back in 1995 – and the behavior was atrocious!
Guys.. leave this gal alone!! She has enough to worry about.. she is rank 31 … and as an Indian I wish she could go to no. 1.. so leave her alone!! Let her be!
Being a celebrity has its own downside. Ask Sania Mirza. On Friday the tennis star was busy off court defending statements about pre-marital sex attributed to her. Sections of the press had reported it, but Sania – in the manner of a politician – said that she was misquoted. The denial came in the wake of a wave of protests in her hometown.
Distancing herself from her reported support to south Indian film star Khushboo, who had said pre-marital sex was OK, Sania clarified she was pained about a non-issue being made into a controversy.
She was forced to give out a statement: “I would like to clearly say on record that I could not possibly justify pre-marital sex as it is a very big sin in Islam and one which I believe will not be forgiven by Allah.”
She said the reports had attributed to her a “viewpoint that is totally contrary to what I believe in and what I stand for as a Muslim and as an Indian girl”.
Her family was kept up through Thursday night by callers who demanded a clarification or an explanation. “Is this the treatment to a girl who brought laurels to the nation?” asked an exasperated Imran Mirza, her father.
