Citizenship matter of Shoaib and Sania's son clarified

Star couple Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza were recently blessed with the birth of their baby son. The newborn has been named Izhaan and while questions lingered over what would be the child’s nationality, the mystery has been cleared.

According to sources, baby Mirza-Malik’s name has been registered by his parents with the Union Ministry of Home Affairs to make him eligible to receive a passport from the Indian government.

Thus, the child of Indian tennis sensation and Pakistan’s talismanic all-rounder will pledge allegiance to his mother’s country. With Pakistan not allowing a dual nationality with the country of India, young Izhaan will not share his father’s nationality.
