Siddiqui family threatens to sue Shoaib Malik

Farisha Siddiqui, mother of Ayesha, addresses a press conference in Hyderabad on Friday. PTIAyesha, who claims to have married Shoaib in 2002, went the whole hog on Friday circulating copies of her “nikahnama” to Pakistani and Indian channels where she poured her heart out on the break-up.

The marriage certificate was shown by several Pakistani television channels and apparently contained the signatures of Shoaib on the column for the groom and the name of Maha Siddiqui on the column for the bride.

“I have released this marriage certificate because Shoaib and his family have constantly been denying this marriage,” Ayesha said.

“I want to end my ordeal, I want to move on and put a stop to people asking me questions constantly about my marriage to him. Even an official ‘talaq, talaq talaq’ will do,” she said.

Her father M A Siddiqui threatened to file a case against Shoaib if he went ahead with the marriage to Sania without divorcing Ayesha. Ayesha said she had released the “nikahnama” because it proved that the marriage did take place. “They are signatures of witnesses on the certificate and Shoaib sent me a copy for signature and a ‘Haq Mahar’ amount of Pakistani 500 rupees,” she said.

She said Shoaib was always unhappy with her weight problems and for his sake, she also had a surgery in Delhi. “But I am devastated the way he is constantly denying everything. I have nothing against Sania but the truth must come out,” Ayesha said.She rubbished talk of her doing this for publicity and money. She also brushed aside reports that Shoaib had married a woman by the name of Maha Siddiqui and not Ayesha.
“My name is Maha Siddiqui, Ayesha is the name given to me by my grandmother. Maha is my name in my passport.

A Pakistani television channel on Friday beamed excerpts of a 2004 interview in which Shoaib admitted he was married to Ayesha. “Her name is Ayesha and I am very happy. If there are any calls from women, I don’t attend to them and I avoid them,” he had said during the interview. Ayesha claimed that Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Yousuf’s wife knew about their marriage. She said she last spoke to Shoaib in 2007 and since then he had never taken her calls.

Malik’s residential address in the nikaahnama is given as A-4, Tariq Colony in Sialkot.
The marriage was arranged by Zulfiqar Malik, a resident of the Sialkot Cricket Association and the two witnesses named in the contract are Mukhtar Ali Khan and Syed Mubashar Ali of Sialkot. The document also bears the stamp of Nasir Khan, the local registrar of marriages.
