Shahid Afridi criticises Narendra Modi government

This is not the first time Afridi has targeted the Indian PM.

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday (July 16) while speaking over Babar Azam’s tweet for Virat Kohli.

Afridi was asked for a comment on Pakistan captain Babar‘s support for struggling Indian batter Kohli via a tweet. Babar had tweeted: “This too shall pass. Stay strong.” Kohli is going through a rough patch in his career at the moment. So Babar felt that he should pass on some positive words to Kohli. Afridi, speaking on this exchange, said that the Pakistan captain conveyed a positive message to the world by tweeting in support of Kohli. But at the same time, the Pakistani Allrounder also took a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He said that after he came to power, the relations between India and Pakistan turned more sour.

Afridi’s comments on PM are not for the first time

“Cricket has brought Pakistan and India closer. Babar Azam conveyed a very positive message to the world and I think Virat Kohli should’ve responded too. Relations were normal between the two countries but it got worse after Narendra Modi came in power,”


This is not the first time Afridi has targeted the Indian PM. In May 2020 too, he spoke ill about the PM, saying that a big disease is in the mind of Narendra Modi. This is what he said

“I am in your beautiful village, I am very delighted. I was planning to visit you all for a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease… but the bigger disease is in Modi’s mind.”

Earlier too Afridi was slammed for his ill comments by former Indian cricketers like Gautam Gambhir and Shikhar Dhawan this time too his comments will attract his criticism.
