Shahid Afridi Responds After His Picture With Zionist Group Goes Viral on Social Media

Former cricketer Shahid Afridi responded to a Zionist group that posted his picture on social media sparking a lot of outrage on social media following his interaction with fans who were supporting the Zionist movement.

The cricketer clarified that he thought, a recent photograph with a Zionist group happened because he thought it was an ordinary fan interaction.

Taking to X (formerly Twitter) after the photo went viral, Afridi said that he was walking down a street in the UK when some people asked him for a photo and he obliged.

“Imagine strolling down a street in Manchester (UK) and so-called fans approach you for a selfie. You oblige, and moments later, they upload it as some form of Zionist endorsement,” he wrote.

“Unbelievable! Please don’t believe everything that is uploaded.” He went on to add that the photo does not signify his support for any situation where ‘human lives are at stake’.

Following his photo with the Zionist group fans on social media gave mixed reactions, many defended the cricketer acknowledging the fact that he had no idea that they were supporting that movement while others said that it was naive on Afridi’s part to take a picture with them as they had pamphlets in their hands which portrayed their ambitions.

It was evident, that the fans who took the picture with the superstar cricketer took advantage of the situation but the claim by the fans that Afridi should’ve been clever in that situation.

  • Shahid’s statement does not seem to be logical, as when we see the picture behind shahid, there look more people having same playcards in their hands. It clearly means it was a rally and hard to imagine that shahid was walking in between them without any purpose……. ???

  • Shahid Afridi be like : Aise situations main automatically main agye kaise ajata hn??

  • So he jumped into the rally ? Or he can’t read English placard ?? Did he get paid by some one to show up at a rally ??

  • What an awful excuse of a human being. And what an explanation which doesn’t even sound like an explanation. Even if he found himself in the midst of zionists he should have come out with a condemnation of the war in Gaza and the genocide of the 40,000 Palestinians including over 15,000 CHILDREN! Babies without heads and burned mothers, fathers and the elderly. All he can come out with is a justification for being in a photo but no condemnation! Just awful!
