Amid hectic wedding preparations, Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik in keeping with customs has moved out of Sania Mirza's house before their marriage on April 15 though his family members are staying at her place.
The clarification came from Sania's spokesperson after a fatwa was issued by Sunni Ulema Board which said that a bride and the groom staying in the same house before marriage is un-Islamic and unacceptable.
When contacted, the All India Sunni Ulema Board distanced itself from the fatwa.
"We have nothing to do with this outfit. Such fatwas cannot be issued," AISUB spokesperson said.
