One of the most famous faces of Pakistan’s cricket team, Shahid Afridi is in legal trouble in his country for saying that the team receives more love in India than in Pakistan. While his home country seems rather mad at Shahid for making this statement, Fawad Khan totally supports him. Here’s what Fawad said in Shahid’s defense –
What happened with Afridi, I think it happens everywhere and anywhere that someone comes and creates an issue saying ‘You said wrong or did wrong’. When Afridi said ‘Indian fans have given us more love than what we get in Pakistan,’ it was in some other context but something else was made out of it. I feel he gave the statement just to ease up the environment. This is a momentary thing. Somebody has just tried to misuse the quote. That will die with time. It doesn’t mean that anyone can question his patriotism. He is a very proud Pakistani. And we are proud to have him as a representative of our country.
That’s sweet and all, but we hope you know India’s totally going to beat Pakistan, Fawad :-P
