Family denies changing Malik-Mirza wedding date

HYDERABAD: The family of Indian tennis player Sania Mirza denied Friday that they had moved up the date of her wedding to former Pakistan cricket captain Shoaib Malik.

The proposed marriage stirred controversy when another woman claimed she was already married to Malik.

Muslim elders brokered a divorce between the pair earlier this week, clearing the way for the wedding.

Earlier in the day, the cleric slated to perform the ceremony, Azamatullah Jafri, said the family had asked him to marry the pair Friday night, instead of April 15 as scheduled. New barricades were erected outside their home in Hyderabad to keep the media away.

But Mirza’s aunt ,Hameeda Usman, denied the wedding date had been changed.

”There is no function today,” she said. ”It is scheduled to take place on April 15 according to the original program.”
