A Miandad Googly

A few visitors wanted to hear my reaction on the proposed marriage of Mahrukh binte Dawood Ibrahim and Junaid bin Javed Miandad. Initially I had nothing significant to report other then what was widely reported in the Print media. A week has passed and I now bring you my twist into this affair.
In the twists and turns of India-Pakistan relations comes one more difficult spin. What should India do, or how should New Delhi react, when news is confirmed that the daughter of India’s most-wanted criminal Dawood Ibrahim is set to marry the son of one of Pakistan’s greatest cricketers, Javed Miandad? This is as difficult as it can get when India and Pakistan are trying to sort out issues and move toward lasting peace, and Miandad remains a cricketing icon.
Reports suggest that Ibrahim’s daughter Mahrukh and Miandad’s son Junaid grew up together in Dubai. Junaid studied at Oxford University in London, where Mahrukh is also based, and the two reportedly became engaged last year. It was a fairy-tale love story in which they should live happily ever after, until the ISI got involved where the establishment felt that the marriage would not reflect too kindly on Pakistan. Reports say it took some cajoling of higher-ups by ISI officials known to Miandad that allowed the marriage to happen. A happy ending, one could say.
The interesting part is if India would allow Javed Miandad entry into its borders as a reaction to this propsed marraige even if it were for peaceful cricketing purposes or even if he might one day coach our cricket team to lead them across the border. ISI has long denied the presence of Dawood Ibrahim in Pakistan and it now stands caught in a persistent lie. Personally I see no problem in this marriage why should the children have to suffer the sins of their fathers, but on the other hand Dawood Ibrahim has lived in complete protection and has manipulated not only the underworld but has also made a mess out of our stock exchange (which continues to be a gold mine for Dawood Ibrahim).
What do you have to say to this Googly for the India-Pakistan peace process
