Danish Kaneria, the former Pakistani cricketer, has slammed Shahid Afridi for his racist speech against India and its prime minister, Modi.
Afridi raised Kashmir issue and said that Coronavirus is dangerous but Modi’s heart is more full of hate.
He has received hate and criticism from all across India. The Indian players such as Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh, who donated for Afridi’s foundation, says that they won’t be keeping any relation with him after what he has said for India and the Government.
Danish Kaneria says that Indian players helped Afridi and he is uttering out such words for their country which is extremely wrong.
Danish Kaneria slams Afridi for his speech against India’s PM
“Shahid Afridi should think before speaking on any matter. If he wants to join politics then he should quit all ties with cricket. It is important to stay away from cricket if you are speaking like a politician. Speeches like these create a negative image of Pakistan cricket not only in India but also around the world,” Kaneria told India TV.
“He appealed for help from them and after getting the help you end up saying things about their country and PM. What sort of friendship is this?” questioned Kaneria.
Danish Kaneria also seemed positive while discussing the future of Pakistan vs India matches. He thinks that political tension that is between India and Pakistan has been the part of cricket as well and in order to reduce it, the focus shall be on organizing India vs Pakistan matches.
“Cricketing ties between the two countries should resume. India and Pakistan have some political tension between them, which the government of both countries should resolve with dialogue so that cricket can return,” Kaneria said.
