    Aisam is a great player and obviously a proud for Pakistan. I am proud of him. However, playing alongside with a hindu in recently has impressed him enough to wear a hindu dress in his wedding ceremony.

    @Patriotic: You truly have no knowledge about the heritage of the country that you are so in love with. Sherwani is part of muslim culture and was a class symbol during muslim rule in india. It was only later hindus adopted it. You should see photographs of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other muslims from that time and even today a lot of people wear Sherwani at formal gathering.

    and lets not forget that the sherwani is a local adaptation of the Western frock coat. so by definition everyone wearing a sherwani is a slave of the west etc etc. The levels of ignorance people like ‘patriotic’ will succumb to!!!!!

    maybe he should have worn a shalwar with paenchas up to his knees to look more pakistani and grown a beard for more character
