Sania Mirza Slams Twitterati For Calling Her “Non-Indian”

News of eight-year-old Asifa Bano’s rape has taken India by storm. The girl had gone missing in early January 2018 and was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the Hiranagar tehsil of Hindu-dominated Kathua district, initial reports suggested.

While the case is still undergoing, Indian celebrities such as Sania Mirza, have come forth to express their disgust over the incident. However, one Twitter user slammed Sania for being a “non-Indian”.

Sania Mirza had initially tweeted,

“Is this really the kind of country we we want to be known as to the world today ?? If we can’t stand up now for this 8 year old girl regardless of our gender,caste,colour or religion then we don’t stand for anything in this world.. not even humanity.. makes me sick to the stomach”

She further added,

“Justice needs to be done … for the sake of keeping our faith in the judiciary and the system alive .. I really hope and pray justice is done .. and soon.. #UnnaoHorror #UnnaoRapeCase”

To which Twitter user Kichu Kannan Namo, who describes himself as a nationalist and a social media coordinator for Indian political party BJP, replied:

“With all respect madam which country are you talking abt.Last time I checked u had married into Pakistan. You no longer are a Indian. And if u must tweet thn also tweet for the innocents killed by Pak terror outfits..”

Sania held nothing back and slammed the man right there and then by saying,

“First of all nobody marries ‘into’ anywhere .. you marry a person! Secondly NO LOW LIFE like you will tell me which country I belong to.. I play for India,I am Indian and always will be.. nd maybe if u look beyond religion and country one day you may just also stand for humanity!”

Other celebrities including Riteish Deshmukh, Farhan Akhtar and Sophie Chaudry have also come forth and expressed their discomfort on the rape of an eight-year-old girl.
