Earlier this week, Shaheen Afridi’s engagement news with former Pakistan cricket team captain, Shahid Afridi’s daughter made rounds on social media. As the engagement was announced, Twitteratis went into the celebration mode.
But a new video has raised eyebrows of the general public as they see Shaheen’s brothers celebrating the occasion with aerial firing.
On Sunday, the fast bowler’s father had confirmed that Shahid Afridi’s family has accepted their proposal and Shaheen is set to marry Afridi’s daughter in two years’ time.
He also said that their families have a longstanding relationship with each other and a formal engagement ceremony will be held soon.
Soon, a wave of celebration and happiness spread all across social media. But a video of Shaheen Afridi’s family is going viral and people are raising concerns.

The video has made several rounds on social media and while some are wondering why the police or authorities haven’t taken any action yet…
@KP_Police1 must investigate the issue and collect the arms and ammunition from these guys.

Arial firing is a big crime and all these culprits must be brought to the court of law for awarding them examplary punishment.
