Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh also found themselves in the line of fire, for extending help to Shahid Afridi Foundation in its fight Coronavirus and the people suffering due to the pandemic.
Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh stated that, there would not be any relationship between him and former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi, after he recently comments on Kashmir.
“This is very upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking very poor about our country and our prime minister”.This is just not acceptable, Harbhajan said.
It was found that Indian former cricketer Yuvraj singh and Harbhajan singh has recently made an appeal for people to donate to Shahid Afridi Foundation in order to fight against Coronavirus.
“To be honest, Afridi asked us to make an appeal for his charity and we did for humanity and for the sake of people suffering from this fatal disease,” Says annoyed Harbhajan Singh on national television.
Outraged and Frustrated Harbhajan Singh said he has severed “whatever little ties,” he had with Afridi.
“Even our Prime Minister has said that Coronavirus is a fight that extends beyond borders, religions and caste. So we were very clear with the cause that we were promoting, which was simply to help those in crisis. But this man (Afridi) is talking ill about our country. All I have to say is, we have nothing to do with Shahid Afridi. He has no right to speak wrong/ill against our country and he should stay in his country and limits,” Harbhajan thundered with anger.
Many people were accusing both Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh when the appeal made by them came under spotlight. Social media was flooded with People’s anger against them.
A veteran of over 100 Tests with 417 victims against his name, Harbhajan says that he doesn’t have to prove his loyalty to people on social media and would rather let his deeds speak for him.
“I was born in this country and will die in this country. I have played for my country for over 20 years and have won many games for India. No one can say that I have done anything against my country.
“Today or tomorrow, if my country needs me anywhere, even if at the border, I will be the first one to pick up a gun for the sake of my country.”
As for his relations with Afridi, it’s a closed chapter now. “One person asks me to make an appeal for the sake of humanity, and I did my bit. That was it. I have no relation or tie-up with any Shahid Afridi from here on,” Harbhajan signed off.
