BHOPAL: The court of the chief judicial magistrate (CJM) here admitted a case against tennis star Sania Mirza for allegedly dishonouring the national flag during Hopman Cup in Perth, Australia.

CJM Ajay Shrivastava admitted the case after four witnesses testified having seen a photograph of Sania with her feet in front of India's flag.

Raj Kumar Dubey, a lawyer based here, filed the case on Jan 3.

Sports Minister Mani Shankar Iyer has also been made a party in the case.

"Sania got so involved in watching the match that she forgot where her feet were, and what is the value of the tricolour in the heart of Indians. She should therefore be penalised," Dubey had contended before the court.

"The next date of hearing has been fixed Jan 9 when the court may issue notices to the tennis player and the minister," Dubey said.

Insulting the national flag is an offence that attracts a maximum sentence of three years, with fine.

Correct. She should finally marry and give birth to like 14 children.

Correct. ;) Many European countries are slowly killing themselves demographically thinking it's enlightened not to have many children. Meanwhile they are slowly being overcome by these "exotic peoples" and soon will become minorities in their own countries.

i'd like to see this photograph of this because surely its can't be as ridiculous as it sounds. I mean what did they expect her to do? Watch the match while standing on her chair?

hmmm
i am not sure about the legality of this
the crime if any was committed in Australia
Indian courts don't have jurisdiction over a crime committed in Australia
but sania can you be a little more careful
its not as if she does not know the rules

I just realized the person who filed the case is a LAWYER. Now that makes sense. :lol: Sometimes hunger of publicity makes people do something ridiculous. And stupid. :help:

oh my goodness. I'm not a fan but leave the poor woman alone! She'd do well to defect to another country and play for them instead of all the ingrates she plays for now.

and what exactly is a proper muslim girl? The one who sees her dreams go up in smoke , because she can't participate in certain sports because of the dress code? :rolleyes:
islam = total submission
i.e you have no right to laugh , think or enjoy

LoL I can't believe people don't realise that pepsi is being sarcastic.

The laws about the national flag in India are very draconian and outdated, but it's not like they are ever enforced. Many countries have outdated laws that were forgotten but technically still on the books.

Stop clutching your pearls. Any attention seeking idiot can file a court-case, it's not like the police are breaking down her hotel door to arrest her.

hmm they are still enforced
the case against malini ramani for using the tricolor as a fashion design is still in the courts
so its not something unique to sania
thats happening here
and one person was jailed for 4 years for forgetting to lower the flag at sundown
sania will get off because the crime was committed outside the jurisdiction of india
lucky sania she will get away while the rest rot in jail

:weirdo: Seriously, the public officials in India need to concentrate on getting the majority of their citizens out of poverty, i.e. more food, better housing and quality education, and forget this pettiness. It's ridiculous.
