Finally Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik got married on 12 of April 2010,where as Reception is due on 15 of April 2010.Whatever impact it will have on Pakistan and India is no doubt a very important issue, but media which played an important role in this wedding now seem to lose hope,because no "mirch-masala" is left for media.Whether it be the Pakistani media or Indian Media,its a fact that both were competing each other in spicing-up the news and they tried their best to cash this wedding of both the stars to earn credibility.
It remained a hit issue in media during the previous few days.Different people have different opinion about the fusion of top stars belonging to two countries,who are rivals to each other.
In Pakistan an extreme wave of happiness can be observed where as Indians have mix opinions and thoughts.As we are living in the global village,one must not be so shocked on such incidents,I agree that both the groom and bride are the public figures,but still it is their personal issue,totally private to them,therefore their desire to get "ONE" should be respected by all.But,unfortunately everyone tried encashing the situation,everyone wanted to get fame and benefit.
If Pakistani media is analyzed, it will be obvious that all the private channels were just telecasting flash files,clump of the photos with some Film's songs being played in the background which lacked proper information.Seems their main focus was to fill the stomach of their bulletins somehow.This habit is unethical media practice,As "news" is always to inform,not to "please or entertain"
Whereas Indian media tried its best to somehow stop this wedding.Some Hindu extremist parties like "SHEV SINA" threatened Sania mirza and her family in case of getting married with shoaib,however U-turn was taken by them later-on.A survey of forums over internet reveals that a common Hindu/Indian is not very happy with SANIA SHOAIB.According to them it would have been better if she would have married some "low standard Indian" instead of Pakistan's top cricket star.
Anyhow,Both are happily married now despite the fact that many elements tried to create a bad-taste but they both were destined for each other. Click for Sania mirza & Shoaib Malik wedding photos.
I wish the couple lots of blessings,health,prosperity and love.May this wedding be fruitful for both India and Pakistan. Amin
