As the news about tennis star Aisamul Haq's separation from his wife Faha Akmal erupted across news channels in Pakistan on Sunday, Pakistanis on Twitter flooded their Timelines with the latest from the episode.
While some of them thought it was an unexpected event, others boasted that it was predictable. However, to some, the ongoing coverage was invasion of privacy by the media.
I condemn media for continuously giving details of aisam’s separation. We r not Americans. We need to respect people’s privacy
Sana barghoob @Sana507
Please aisam nd faha dont 2 do this , u guys need some more time to decide. U made for eachother.
Xeeshan Sharif @DjXeeshan

Sami Shah @samishah
Aisam Ul Haq is pulling a Kardashian?
Bushra Batool @B_Batool
see the level of maturity of people. @TrendsKarachi 'aisam' is now trending in #Karachi
Aisam-ul-Haq and Faha Makhdum's marriage lasted for 210 days only. #Divorced
Tooba Hatif @iQuoteWhateverr
Aisam ul Haq, Faha Akmal decide to part ways.. Its really sad they both make a really decent couple! what happened?
Syed M Haider @syedmhaider
Divorce of Aisam and Faha is a very private matter that should only discussed while jumpin' up & down on the couch at Nadia Khan Show.
Roha Nadeem @RohaTheManiac
Veena aunty stated earlier that she had a crush on Aisam. Hope this aint some #KaalaJaadu story lol. #AisamKiTalaak
Faizan Lakhani @faizanlakhani
Reportedly, Aisam and Faha couldn't develop understanding, hence decided to part ways.
Saad Hamid @SaadGH
Lo baee aaj ki social media shaam, Aisam aur Faha k naam.
Muaz Raja @muazraja
So I wake up on sunday afternoon and its perhaps a black day for Pakistani sportsmen! Amir khan knocked out & Aisam divorced WTF? *facepalm*
Nimra Ishtiaq @MilitaryMedium
I sincerely hope this "news" about Aisam is just a rumour. In either case, stop flashing it on our TV screens as "breaking news".
Zaitoon Malik @ZaitoonMalik
A bad day for both of our Sports stars. Khan loses & so does Aisam. Best wishes with both.
Hayah Taimur @HayahTaimur

I think Pakistani media is irresponsible because some matters are very personal like Asiam and Faha Divorce why media intrepid people personal i think avoid to highlight these issues
well this waz all aspected ....clash of cultures...
it is tennis and not personal life that introduced aisam-ul-haq so people try handling your own knife and fork rather than snatching from sommebody`s hand
than you should not have commented or been bothered else, if it was fate
i believe you are a human first and muslim second, try covering the flaws you see rather than trying unveiling them !
Please ET i admit, your news made me sick of you, but still visit :$
THANKS ALOT TRIBUNE FOR SHOWING THIS NEWS....IT HIS PRIVATE LIFE ..we are not Americans ..why dont the media people get it....
People are dying in BURMA and tht cannot be covered by are media..NO NEWS AT ALL WHTS HAPPNING..but life of a private person is being discussed here openly...SHAME ON YOU MEDIA, its all for money
It's a personal matter for both of them. Leave them alone.
Aisam probably realized he could do better! Good luck to him!
I think RAW is behind this. LOL
@Rameez: "This happens when you import brides. Didn’t people learn any lesson from the divorce of Imran khan and Jemima khan ? You cannot mix eastern and western valves.They are bound to collide."
What about the thousands of British and American Pakistani boys and girls whose parents force them to come to Pakistan to choose their life partners? You would not describe the Pakistani spouses going to the Western country as an imported spouse would you?
ET never allow me to post a comment !!
Typical media crapness leave them a lone and stop cashing money outta nothing, And yeah you to tribune.com.pk you also do that to get some clicks on your adsense LOL
The news is wrong according to Aisam' father very funny
where is cheif minister of Punjab....and Rana Sanaullah
i smell Indian hand in this
It's always sad and weird when people divorce.
It's always sad and weird when people divorce. :/
There is a breaking news now that the rumor is wrong and there is no such thing as separation between the couple. What the heck is wrong with our media ? Damn can they leave the couple's private matter to them only ....
Cheif Justice Pakistan takes sou motu action of the divorce......notices sent to Aisam and Faha. Refernce initially planned to be filed by PTI but PML-N filed it first !!!!! NAB chairman also directed by president to probe. :) :) :)hehehehehehe
The way this couple's marriage was given media attention with their consent, it did not remain a private matter. What bothers me is that most of the marriages in middle and upper middle class these days are ending up in divorce. Its a serious issue and we cannot hide it under the carpet.. Five out of ten weddings I attended this year have already gone wrong and rest are also not enjoying their partnership. Who would in this kind of loadshedding but this couple had not that problem. The guests who attend these weddings, spend money on dresses and gifts and waste time are real losers.
Can you guys stop being crass and stop obsessing over a private affair? Who are these people even to comment on someone who is not related to them. Just because other channels are running the news like a Star Plus drama doesnt mean that ET has to stoop so low too!!!
really a bad and sad news nice decent and cute couple tha
really bad annd sad nice and decent and cute couple tha
Why can't people do their own work. Islam forbids us to discuss personal matters of people among people esp someone loss or sth bad with them
@azhar. I don't know but I am launching a probe. I have constituted a committee to look into the causes and submit report to you sir in 15 days.
This is destiny and it was bound to happen if it was written so do not be suprise
Marriage is about love and adjustment. And if the couple has problems, they can seek divorce. Just because you are married doesn't mean you should stay married for life. Sometimes divorce is better than staying marriage. Good luck to both.
Give them some space you jobless freaks!!!
This happens when you import brides. Didn't people learn any lesson from the divorce of Imran khan and Jemima khan ?
You cannot mix eastern and western valves.They are bound to collide.
@azhar: No no I think the reason was that she had a pet cat but he was allergic to cats and then both of them wanted to sleep on the right side of the bed so that compounded things as well /sarcasm
Seriously ET, this is giving the look of a tabloid site like Gawker more than a bonafide news site. Just give the news. Don't give random people's opinion about it.
Bad day for both of them!! Things shouldn't happen that way.
So lovely to see people who can type thinking their words hold even a slice of meaning for those their tweets are aimed at.
sad news... what was the reason??? aisam must have given time to faha.... he is always busy in tennis tournaments
