Iman mazari said shahid Afridi isn’t a legend & people trolled her badly.
In Pakistan, it won’t be wrong to say that the majority of the people can agree to the fact that Shahid Afridi is one of the biggest superstars in cricket that Pakistan has ever produced. Some may question his cricketing techniques and a child-like-brain and criticize his not so impressive average in one-day international cricket, but when it comes to being a legend and a match winner, there will hardly be any disagreements. But Imaan Hazir Mazari proved us wrong where she refused to call Shahid Afridi a legend.
This was in reply to Imran Ismail’s picture that he posted with Afridi.
Governor Sindh, Imran Ismail tweeted a picture of himself sitting with one of the all-time greats of squash, Jahangir Khan and our cricket superstar Shahid Afridi. The picture was captioned “With legends”.
Seeing this, Imaan Mazari quoted Imran Ismail’s tweet and said that Shahid Afridi is NOT a legend. Pretty brave of you young lady seeing how vicious twitter can be especially if you say something against someone who has a such a huge fan following.
people supports shahid afridi all the way
people praised shahid afridi for his charity work
So maybe judging Afridi’s class by one remark about women which turned out to be sexist and misogynistic is a bit unfair.
He definitely has done a lot for Pakistan and its cricket including women. Afridi has clarified the statement about it and said that he supports women’s cricket. We should give respect to our legends even if we don’t agree with their beliefs.
