Reality of Shahbaz Sharif Daughter Marry to a Sikh in IndiaBy Tazeen • Sep 7th, 2013 • Category: Politics • 8 Comments
She is not daughter of Shahbaz Sharif. She indeed comes from Sharif family, but they are not closely related. There are misleading reports coming out of India. Deccan Herald of India says that Somya, the daughter of Shahbaz Sharif from his third wife Khabija has married a RSS Indian Lt Col son Kanv Pratab Singh, whereas Hindustan Times doesn’t mention the name of Shahbaz Sharif and just mentions a Pakistani girl marrying an Indian boy. But Daily Bhaskar tells the real story.
Hindustan Times says:
Cross-border bonhomie couldn’t get more pronounced. In Panchkula on Friday, Kanav Pratap Hoon, the grandson of Siachen hero Lt Gen Prem Nath Hoon (retd), tied the knot with Samiya Siddiq of Lahore, Pakistan, in a court marriage. Kanav, 27, and Samiya, 26, had met in Dubai for the first time and fell in love. Samiya is the daughter of Shazia Siddiq and Mian Muhammad Siddiq while the Hoons are natives of Abottabad in Pakistan. Kanav helps in his family’s business of Hyundai dealership at Chandigarh’s Industrial Area.
Deccan Herald says:
On either side of the border between India and Pakistan, two elite influential families, including one of Pakistan’s top political family currently in power, ceremoniously entered into a relationship by virtue of the marriage of their children in Chandigarh on Friday. Daughter of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s younger brother Shahbaz Sharif, who is presently the Chief Minister of Punjab province of Pakistan, got married with the grandson of Lt General (retd) P N Hoon, a former Indian Army commander. Lt Gen Hoon is well-known for his anti-Pakistan rhetoric, especially when it comes to commentary on Indo-Pak relations and posturing amid provocations from the other side of the LoC. He is also believed to be an RSS ideologue.
Daily Bhaskar says:
It’s rightly said that love reduces conflicts even when it’s cross border conflict. A cross border wedding held at Panchkula witnessed a similar love and friendliness here last week. Reducing Indo-Pak woes, Lt Gen (Retd) Prem Nath Hoon’s grandson, tied the knot with a Lahore based girl, who comes from the family of Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif. Kanav Pratap Hoon, grandson of Lt Gen (retd) PN Hoon married Samiya Siddiq, daughter of Mohammed Siddiq. Siddiq was a businessman and a relative of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
