Sania-Shoaib walima marred by unruly guests

Lahore, Apr 28: For the second time, Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik were forced to leave their reception function earlier than planned as they were troubled by unruly guests.

The groom Malik hosted a ‘walima’ or reception on Tuesday, Apr 27 in Lahore’s Pearl Continental Hotel to celebrate his marriage to Indian tennis star Sania Mirza.

Sources revealed that the ceremony ended before the scheduled time after some guests began behaving in an unruly manner.

The ceremony was cut short as the ‘unruly’ guests began forcing the newly-wed cross border couple to pose of photos.

While Wasim Bari and Aamir Sohail were the only two test cricketers who attended the ceremony, the high-profile guest list included, prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani’s son Abdul Qadir, federal sports minister Aijaz Jakhrani, Punjab governor Salmaan Taseer, and population welfare minister Firdous Aashiq Awan.

However, the sources were of the opinion that the reception in Lahore was better organised thanthe Sunday, Apr 25 ceremony organised in Malik’s hometown, Sialkot.

Even in the reception held in Sialkot, the couple left the ceremony early as they were upset over scores of uninvited guests, mismanagement of the security arrangements by the Punjab Police and the local administration’s insistence that the cricketer’s reception should adhere to austerity measures and energy conservation rules established by the authorities.
