Ever since her pregnancy, tennis player Sania Mirza has been in the limelight even more.
Throughout her pregnancy, Sania Mirza has shared pearls of wisdom. Previously she stated:
“I try to stay as active as I can because as a woman, I think unfortunately we have to [make some] sacrifices for a few months when we are not able to do everything but that doesn’t mean that you will not get what you were doing or how you work before. I think the most important thing is to understand that you are pregnant, you are not handicapped. Pregnancy is a part of who you are. Try to be normal.”
Being as active as she is, Sania has also received a lot of flak – especially for her outfits and photo shoots.
And now, she’s been getting a lot of unwanted advice from different people.
Yes, Pregnancy is not a disease but don't show off your body parts by wearing revealing clothes. There are young boys whose minds get spoiled when women do such immoral things in public. A pregnant woman could also wear non revealing clothes. #SaniaMirza #Sania #Mirza

Consequently, she took to Twitter to slam all the trolls. In doing so, she also shared more advice.
Word of advice for ppl(specially since the majority seem to be men) who think being pregnant means you have to go into hibernation for 9 months,sit at home and for some reason be ‘ashamed in this haalat’..So when women are pregnant they don’t have a disease or become untouchable-

Or become a corpse!!! They are still ‘NORMAL’ human beings and are still allowed to live a normal life!! so pls take your heads out of your a** and think where exactly you came from too..your mother’s womb!! #ittakesallkindstomakethisworld #dumidiots too !!

Her argument is simple: being pregnant doesn’t mean you can’t do anything anymore. You’re still a normal human being at the end of the day – a normal human being.
Some people applauded her for calling out her haters.
Spot on. Well said. Becoming a mother or a parent is a blessing from Allah. Don't pay attention to people, if u stop and pelt stones at every dog that barks at you, you will never reach home. Prayers for you, @realshoaibmalik and baby.

Others asked her to ignore such people and not take such things to heart.
Sania, please don't take these things to heart, don't let them affect you. They're dumb and uneducated!! You're absolutely glowing in your pregnancy. May Allah bless you and your baby❤️❤️

And some people are still giving her hate…
Hey deshdrohi.. jyada uchal mat.. tere pakistan mei hota hoga aisa.. chutiya kahi ki.

I've never known anyone, man or woman to have this opinion about pregnant people. What sort of people are you hanging out with, and listening too? Maybe get some new friends, and stop worrying about what ppl are "supposedly" saying.

…blaming feminism in the process.
@MirzaSania it seems dt a new kind of fashion z on the way. Just defame all the Men for sake of feminism. Its a new swag around the world. This z really absurd ridiculous and not gud for this society.

Nevertheless, there is no denying the fact that there are still many people in the society who are of the opinion that women should be confined within the four walls of the house during their pregnancy. However, times are changing and women nowadays want to live each moment of this phase. The same is the reason as to why many celebrities don’t shy away from flaunting their baby bump or posting pictures on social media.
We wish Sania and her family the best of luck for their future. Let us know what you think about this whole matter in the comments below.
