Sania Mirza tweets against TV ads on India-Pakistan worldcup match

Indian tennis player Sania Mirza has harshly criticized Indian and Pakistani media for ultra-nationalist television commercials. Indian tennis sensation Sania Mirza who is also spouse of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, has tweeted: “Cringeworthy ads on both sides of the border seriously guys, you don’t need to ‘hype up’ or market the match anymore specially with rubbish! it has ENOUGH attention already!It’s only cricket for God sake, and if you think it’s anymore than that then get a grip or get a life !!,”
Indian media has made a bad reputation of ultra-nationalist hype. Few months ago when Pakistan retaliated with day time airstrike after a night time airstrike by Indian jets, Indian media started to telecast ultra-nationalist analysis. Many experts say, Indian media fueled the tension instead of urging for peace.
During the 2015 cricket Worlcup Bangladeshi cricket fans were shocked to watch an Indian TV commercial which insulted Bangladeshi cricket. Indian television has recently made another TVC which has shown Bangladesh and Pakistan as bother and India as father.
Pakistani ultra-nationalists has replied with another TVC which has shown Pakistan is questioning arrested pilot Abhinandan Varthaman’s lookalike about Indian strategy and he is replying with viral remark: I’m sorry, I am not supposed to tell you this.
Pakistan and India is an archrival in cricket but Pakistan has never managed to win a single match against India in worldcup. So they will be looking for their first victory on Sunday. Apart from ultra-nationalist supporters, thoughtful mind will always insist, it’s only a game of cricket.
