LAHORE - The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking registration of case against Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza for allegedly violating several provisions of law in their marriage function in Sialkot. After hearing arguments of the petitioner the LHC chief justice dismissed the petition observing that the allegations were in the air and the petitioner had no proof to justify his allegations against the couple. Earlier, petitioner - lawyer Sheikh Hasan Sheraz, a resident of Gujranwala, argued that Marriage Functions (Prohibition of Ostentatious Displays and Wasteful Expenses) Ordinance 2000 was violated in marriage ceremonies of Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza. The petitioner submitted that an amount of Rs 5 million was spent in the reception ceremony held in Sialkot on April 25 in which one dish restriction was also violated openly. He submitted that District Coordination Officer Sialkot intentionally ignored to take the legal action against them. He stated that a big ceremony was arranged in Sialkot Hockey Stadium, which was started at 8:00pm and continued till 1:00am in violation of restrictions imposed by the government. He said Minister for Population Dr Fardous Ashiq Awan unlawfully awarded title of Ambassador for Population and Welfare to Sonia, ignoring the fact that she was Indian citizen having no domicile of Pakistan. The petitioner said the minister gifted golden crown to Sonia Mirza on her marriage in violation of Dowry and Bridle Gift Restriction Act 1976. He added that on arrival at Sialkot, Sania and Shoaib displayed lighting arrangements amounts to wastage of a huge quantity of money which was not possible in poor country and against the law for which they were liable to be punished. The chief justice observed that the golden crown was given to Sania Mirza in Indias city Hyderabad Deccan and it was not in the jurisdiction of Lahore High Court. The Chief Justice asked him to show notification regarding Sonia appointment as Ambassador population and welfare, which he could not present.
