A leading women’s rights activist in Pakistan jumped to Shoaib’s defence on the matter of his marrying Indian tennis ace Sania Mirza.
“First of all I don’t understand how can the Indian police process a case against him in India under Indian laws when the bane of contention between him and Ayesha is the Nikah which is registered in Pakistan,” a noted women’s right lawyer Hina Rabbani said.
She pointed out that since the Nikahnama produced by Ayesha was registered in Sialkot,the case could only be processed in Pakistan under Pakistani laws.
“Ayesha has no doubt weakened her case by not appearing in person to tell her side of the story,” Rabbani pointed out.
