Harbhajan Singh Says : Have no Relationship with Shahid Afridi from Now
Afridi is talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister: Harbhajan Singh Says
New Delhi: India cricketer Harbhajan Singh stated on Sunday that he has 'no relation or tie-up with Shahid Afridi from here on' after the previous Pakistan captain's recent comments on Kashmir.
"This is extremely upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister. this is often just not acceptable," Harbhajan told India Today show Sports Tak.
Harbhajan and his former India teammate Yuvraj Singh had recently come under attack for the appeal they made for people to donate to the Shahid Afridi Foundation in its fight against coronavirus.
"To be honest, he (Afridi) asked us to form an appeal for his charity. In straightness , we did it for humanity and for the people suffering thanks to the coronavirus," said Harbhajan.
"Even our Prime Minister has said that coronavirus may be 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 assist those in crisis.
"But this man is talking ill about our country. All I even have to mention is we've nothing to try to to with Shahid Afridi. He has no right to talk ill against our country and he should stay in his country and limits.
"I was born during this country and can die during this country. I even have played for my country for over 20 years and have won many games for India. nobody can say that I even have done anything against my country.
"Today or tomorrow, if my country needs me anywhere, albeit at the border, i will be able to be the primary one to select up a gun for the sake of my country."
Harbhajan said that he had made the contribution to Afridi's foundation as a humanitarian gesture but he said that his relationship with the previous Pakistan all-founder has come to an end.
"One person asks me to form an appeal for the sake of humanity, and that i did my bit. That was it. I even have no relation or tie-up with any Shahid Afridi from here on," he said.
Afridi had earlier said that it 'does not take a spiritual belief to feel the agony of Kashmiris...just a right heart at the proper place.
"Save Kashmir," Afridi said during a tweet on Friday.
Harbhajan's former India teammate Gautam Gambhir also slammed Afridi for his comments. "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 Gambhir during a tweet on Sunday.
