“The disease in Modi’s mind is bigger than the coronavirus. The disease Modi has is based around religion. Modi is committing atrocities in Kashmir with our Muslim Kashmiri brothers and sisters.”
After watching it Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh lost their cool and called off their decade old friendship with Pakistani cricketing legend Shahid Afridi. All three of them were always on good terms, ever since they played for India and Pakistan.
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”
“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.”
“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 ill against our country and he should stay in his country and limits,”
Harbhajan and Yuvraj Singh had recently come under fire for the appeal they made for people to donate to the Shahid Afridi Foundation in its fight against coronavirus.
Yuvraj Tweeted to not support Afridi’s organization ever again:
Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial‘s comments on our Hon’b 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.
Jai Hind 🇮🇳

Afridi’s comment were sensitive to many Indians, but when you think of what Kashmiri’s are going through they make total sense. He was right commenting about Modi to his views on Kashmir, everything was related to religious intolerance.
Please let us know in your comments what do you think of Afridi’s speech.
