Sarfaraz Makes Pakistanis Proud By Wearing Shalwar Kameez at Queen’s Meetup

Shalwar Kameez is Pakistan’s national dress and it was heartening to see Pakistan cricket team’s captain Sarfaraz Ahmed wear it in a formal meet-up with Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. The ten captains also met with the Duke of the Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

The skipper, won the hearts of millions of Pakistanis when he decided to uphold the dignity of our traditional Shalwar Kameez. No other captain wore any of their traditional dresses which makes us all love our captain even more.

The step has roped in plenty of praise from all circles on the social media and this might well let all those who were pessimistic of Pakistan’s chances to start supporting the team.

Here’s what the people are saying:

He was the only captain to wear a traditional dress in the high-profile gathering.

Proud of our cultural heritage.

Being unique makes you prominent.

It made the day for many.

On a lighter note.

  • Lol: We will proud when you bring World Cup here. Not by wearing your Shalwar Qamees.

  • that is a proud moment and just a general thumbs rule for jackets – only close top button and leave bottom open :)

  • Mr. Writer, the official, national dress of Pakistan is sherwani. Shalwar kamiz is basically a dress of the Sikhs in the subcontinent and interestingly, our people associate Fridays with it.
