Security concerns and the blow-hot-blow-cold diplomatic ties between India and Pakistan are the reasons why Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik have decided to shift base to Dubai after they get married next month. A source close to Malik has revealed that the two families met in Dubai where Sania's family made it clear that she would not settle in Pakistan after marriage.
“Sania’s family made it clear that she would not settle down permanently in Pakistan, one due to the security situation in the country and secondly because of the blow-hot-blow-cold relations between the two neighbouring countries," the source said. “Sania made it clear that she was not interested in setting up home in Lahore because of the security issues,” he added.
He said that Malik had won an apartment in Dubai after a T20 event in Canada in late 2008.
