In an interview with Pakistan’s news channel, Hum News, Shahid Afridi was spotted thanking the Indian players for their favor for his country suffering from the Coronavirus as a reply to their slammed comments they made on him after he mocked Modi and compared him to a deadly disease, Coronavirus.
Recently, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh donated on the demand of Shahid Afridi for his foundation. Later, when Afridi went to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK), he used some words against India and its prime minister which have hurt the sentiments of Indians. They criticized him badly and Yuvraj said that he won’t be helping anymore along with Harbhajan who has cut off all relations with Afridi.
“This is very upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister. This is just not acceptable,” Harbhajan told to Sports Tak
“Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial’s comments on our Hon’ble PM @narendramodi Ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words. I made an appeal on your behest for the sake of humanity. But never again,” Yuvraj said.
Shahid Afridi: I will remain thankful to Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh
Consequently, Afridi has thanked the Indian players for donating for the sake of humanity and maintained saying that they are obsessed and helpless as they have to live in India.
“I’ll remain thankful towards Harbhajan & Yuvraj for supporting my foundation. The real problem is that this is their compulsion. They live in that country. ‘Wo majboor hain’ (They are helpless). They know that people are being oppressed in their country. I won’t say anything further,” Afridi was quoted as saying on Pakistan channel Hum News.
