There have been reports in Pakistan that Izhaan will not be granted Pakistan citizenship. With Sania Mirza being an Indian and Shoaib Pakistani, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) sources believe that an Indian citizen cannot be granted a citizenship as per the passport and immigration laws of Pakistan. Pakistan has dual nationality arrangements with 19 countries but India is not one of them thanks to the political tension between the two countries over the years.
Meanwhile, when Shoaib was asked about the same before the baby was born, he was of the opinion that he/she would neither be an Indian nor Pakistani.
