India is in a moment of grief. People across the nation are expressing their grief and pain over the brutal killings of CRPF jawans, who were martyred in a suicide bombing attack in Kashmir’s Pulwama district. After the horrific incident on Thursday, February 14, celebrities from across various fields condemned the attack and expressed their devastation. While all Indians are extremely angered and grieved, tennis player Sania Mirza, who also happens to be the wife of Pakistani cricketer, Shoaib Malik, has received some hate talk.
The tennis player is being severely trolled since she chose to upload a picture of her dress instead of expressing her sorrow for the martyrs. Following the backlash, the ace tennis player took to her Twitter and shared her devastation. However, it didn’t convince netizens as they continued attacking Mirza and questioning her love for India. Now, it looks the Mirza has had enough of the backlash. In a long post shared by the Australian Open finalist, she vented her heart out and slammed people who, according to her, think that celebrities need to ‘condemn’ an attack over social media in order to prove their patriotism.

We stand united #PulwamaAttack 🕯
Sania wrote that she plays for India and that’s how she serves her country and people have no right to judge her actions. “Do your bit and we are doing our bit WITHOUT announcing on social media!! Yes that’s a thing too,” read a part of her post. Responding to social media police on social media via a long post… oh, the irony!
