So finally it is out! In the Shoaib Malik-Sania Mirza-Ayesha Siddiqui episode, Ayesha has settled for maintenance Rs 5,000 per month (really!)…. and her mother is very happy that “justice has been done”. As if you will go to international media with all your gory details of fornications (if there was no marriage then it is fornication as per Pakistani law) in star hotels, then miscarriage — all to get Rs 5,000 of maintenance for 3 months!
The real deal is given in news below… 15 crores was the price
Following late night negotiations spearheaded by several Muslim leaders from the Congress, including cricketer-cum-Member of Parliament Mohammad Azharuddin, Andhra Pradesh Minorities Welfare Minister Mohammed Ahmadullah, and Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Abid Rasool Khan, the matter was resolved and Ayesha’s family will withdraw all cases against Shoaib lodged with Hyderabad police. Officially, Ayesha will get Rs 5,000 as mehr for three months during the Iddat period as her alimony according to the Shariat law. The Siddiqui family emphatically denies any additional money changing hands but sources close to the family have told this newspaper that Shoaib has agreed to pay Rs 12 crore directly to Ayesha and her family and another Rs 3 crore towards sundry ‘costs.’
And Hyderabad police has added a feather to their cap by consummating their highest (probably) amount exchanged in a 498a extortion. For your information, here is the official information of Hyderabad police where they tell women in most ‘helpful’ manner on when NOT to file 498a on husband to help prevent abuse of 498a. They have termed it as women’s corner. You get the idea!
