The Day of Independence brings out the true spirit in everyone. While Pakistan celebrated its 70th Independence on the 14th of August, India celebrated its own on the 15th. Many celebrities wished their fans, and vice versa, but some fans were out there just to question the stars.
Sania Mirza, an Indian professional tennis player, also the wife of Pakistani cricket player, Shoaib Malik, was amongst the many celebrities who wished her fans on India’s Independence Day on social media. And, well… we can say that the response she got on her Instagram handle was just what she had expected it to be when she posted a picture of herself with fellow tennis players at a dinner on the occasion.
Here’s how Twitterati threw dirt at her:
Sania G Abhi Aap Pakistan ke izat Ho Bhol jaio India ko… Aap Ne Pakistan Independence Day ke To Koi Post Nahi Ke …. or kiya Kaho Aap ko

And here’s how she was reminded of her responsibilities:

Does Sania deserve to be questioned just because she did not choose to wish her fellow Pakistanis a ‘Happy Independence Day?’
