Former India cricketers Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir recently hit out at Shahid Afridi after the former Pakistan captain’s recent comments on Kashmir. “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 India Today show Sports Tak.
Afridi recently landed himself into a fresh controversy after making derogatory remarks against PM Modi. The former Pakistani all-rounder is also being heavily criticised for his latest remarks on Kashmir as well.

“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 India Today show Sports Tak.
Also explaining his appeal to donate for Shahid Afridi Foundation for which both Harbhajan and his teammate Yuvraj were severely criticised in India, he said, “To be honest, he (Afridi) asked us to make an appeal for his charity. In good faith, we did it for humanity and for the people suffering due to the coronavirus.”
Yuvraj also lashed out at Shahid Afridi for his recent comments. “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. Never again,” Yuvraj tweeted on Sunday.
“Pak has 7 lakh force backed by 20 Cr ppl says 16 yr old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 yrs. Jokers like Afridi, Imran & Bajwa can spew venom against India & PM @narendramodi ji to fool Pak ppl but won’t get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?” said Gautam Gambhir in a tweet on Sunday.
Afridi had earlier said that it ‘does not take a religious belief to feel the agony of Kashmiris…just a right heart at the right place.’
Shahid Afridi is well known for making stupid remarks. He is retarded as a pathological liar by many.
