Without wasting any time on the proper way to address her, Indian PM Narendra Modi congratulated her by her maiden name. No “Beti” , No “Bahu” is used in the congratulatory tweet.
The tweet from @narendramodi twitter account read,
Congratulations to Sania Mirza for the victory in the US Open Mixed Doubles Finals. We are very proud of the achievement. @MirzaSania
Many in his party are still confused on what to call her : “Beti” or “Bahu”. And rightly so. As a neighbour’s daughter-in-law is your daughter-in-law too.
But, one confusion still persists — In what capacity Mr. Modi is proud of her achievement? Means, as father or as father-in-law ? …
Or as a fellow citizen? … But some in his party recently said, she is the daughter-in-law of Pakistan!?
