Indian Cricket Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, could not have thought in his wildest dreams that his second marriage to “Aaisha Bi Singh Rawat” alias Sakshi Singh Rawat would come to haunt him one day.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni had converted to Islam to marry Sakshi Singh Rawat as Hindus are not allowed second marriage. Their marriage was solemnised on 04 July 2010 in Lucknow near Babri Masjid in accordance with Islamic rites. He had married Sakshi while his first wife Deepika P was still alive. Had he paid her enough, the matter probably would not have come to light.
While filing his divorce papers before the officer, Mahendra Singh Dhoni had written his name as Mahendra Singh Dhoni Kewal Krishn concealing his Muslim name Dilawar Khan and wrote the name of his first wife in the respective column. When his cricket rivals brought the issue to the notice of BCCI authorities and the general public, he denied his conversion to Islam and change of name. But Delhi magazine Outlook published a photocopy of his Nikahnama (marriage document) which clearly said that Dilawar Khan Singh Dhoni accepted Aisha Bi Singh Rawat as his wife on 04 July 2010 at a mehr of, Rs 11,11,000 in the presence of two legal witnesses…’
