Former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh took to social media on the special occasion of his 39th birthday to express his views regarding the widespread farmer protest in India against the central government. Yograj Singh, father of Yuvraj and a former cricketer and actor, while giving a speech at the ongoing farmer protests in NCR, reportedly commented on Hindu women saying “their women were sold for two cents. When their women and daughters were abducted by people like Ahmed Shah Durrani and sold off, it was we Sikhs who saved them. These are the people who have betrayed us. This community has been slaves for thousands of years.”
These comments were taken very negatively by a majority of the population as the politician spoke about the women of his country in a very parochial manner. Former world-cup winner, Yuvraj Singh used the opportunity to say that his ideologies are not similar to that of his father, and he has no connection with any comments made by his parent.

Yuvraj also urged the citizens of India to continue to take necessary precautions against the COVID-19 virus and infection as our society continues to fight against the pandemic.
