"Should have stayed within his limits": Harbhajan Singh on Afridi

While Harbhajan and Yuvraj straightaway regretted their decision of lending a helping hand to Shahid Afridi Foundation in its fight against COVID-19 pandemic, the duo made it clear that they will not keep any contact with the former Pakistan skipper from here on.

Harbhajan said, “I thought he was our friend but this not how a friend behaves. Ye badtameezi hai (It’s rude). He should have stayed within his limits but unfortunately keeps on talking rubbish about our country and our PM.”

“What I did for him was in good faith and people suffering due to the coronavirus. But from now on no further relations with him. No more message or helping him. He has to learn how to respect other people,” Harbhajan added.

This is not the first time Afridi has made controversial remarks on Kashmir. On last Friday, he tweeted: “It does not take a religious belief to feel the agony of Kashmiris..just a right heart at the right place. #SaveKashmir”

Last year, Afridi had visited the Line of Control (LoC) to “express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren” following the Indian government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 of the Indian Constitution.
