Ever since the 31-year-old Indian tennis star Sania Mirza married Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, her nationality has been questioned on several occasions, especially during Pakistan's and India's Independence Days.

Speaking to HT Brunch , Mirza admitted that she did not marry the cricketer to unite the two neighbouring nations.

"A lot of people have this notion that Shoaib and I got married to unite the two countries. That is not true. Whenever I have been to Pakistan – and I go once every year to meet my in-laws – the love that I get there is immense," Mirza said.

But does this stop trolls from taking a shot at her? Apparently not.

Mirza, who is expecting a child with Malik in October, took to Twitter on August 14 to wish Pakistani citizens on their Independence Day.

"Happy Independence Day to my Pakistani fans and friends !! best wishes and love from your Indian Bhabi 🙏🏽"

But when one of the followers tweeted to Mirza 'informing' her that her Independence Day was on August 14, Mirza decided to give it back to the troll.

The account (which is now protected) wrote, “Happy Independence Day @MirzaSania.. aapka independence day aaj hi hai na (Your Independence Day must be today).”

Mirza wrote, "Jee nahi.. mera aur mere country ka Independence Day kal hai, aur mere husband aur unnki country ka aaj!! Hope your confusion is cleared !!Waise aapka kab hai?? Since you seem very confused (No. My country's independence day is tomorrow. And my husband's independence day is today. Hope your confusion is cleared. When is your Independence Day? Since you seem very confused.)"

Earlier on Tuesday, Mirza spoke about love and peace and told Twitterati not to spread hate.

"Food for thought - Is it really that difficult not to hate???As kids we are taught love and peace from the time we are born and I think it comes more naturally to love and accept rather than hate right? Since when have we become a world where hate wins over love time and again?," the ace tennis star wrote.

When someone adviced her to not take the trolls seriously, Mirza had this to say. "I am smiling :) it’s gonna take muchhhhhh more than a troll on social media to take over my brain ... thank you for your wishes,"
