HYDERABAD: In fresh trouble for newly-wedded couple, Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza, who are planning to leave for Pakistan to host a wedding reception in Sialkot on April 26, a local court on Wednesday directed the police to register a case against the duo and 12 others for allegedly hurting Muslim sentiments.

Based on a Hyderabad-based Muslim organization’s complaint, the court referred the matter to the police and asked it to submit a report by May 26.

The complainant and Mazlumeen-e-Ummatay Mohammediya founder Moullim Mohsin Bin Hussain Al-Kasary approached the court and named Shoaib, his divorced wife, Ayesha Siddiqui, Sania, her father Imran Mirza, former Indian cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin and two qazis among others for allegedly playing with Muslim sentiments. The families of Sania, Ayesha and the qazis responsible for the Sania-Shoaib marriage were all made respondents in this case.

"Initially, Shoaib said he never married Ayesha, but later divorced her. There is no official divorce, but the 14 accused declared that divorce proceedings are over and got the public, particularly Muslims, confused and insulted their religious feelings," Al-Kasary alleged.

"Two government-appointed qazis misused their official position and got the divorce registered and also played with the beliefs of Muslims even as the documents carried two different names of Shoaib’s father."
