Shahid Khan Afridi, former captain and legendary all-rounder, strongly condemned the November incidents of burning and encirclement.
Shahid Afridi told Sama in an exclusive interview that there is a lot of criticism in Pakistan even for speaking positively. Nothing was said.
He stated, “I don’t understand why politicians don’t accept that if there is a Pakistan Army, then we are.” We are extremely fortunate that the Pakistan Army is available to us 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sacrifices should not be rendered ineffective.
He stated that we are burning our own country and becoming its enemies; we must all accept that the Pakistan Army is our reality; parents of Pakistan Army soldiers send their children to protect us.
“I am very fortunate,” the former captain said. Allah made me in a free country. My children ask me why there is a fire in this country, but I have no words to respond.”
Shahid Afridi stated that he does not understand why the country’s economy cannot function; a politician’s job is to work for the country’s development and prosperity.
