LAHORE– Former cricketer Shahid Afridi has clarified his position after launching criticism against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, saying that the former prime minister is still his ideal.

He had criticised cricketer-turn-politician Imran Khan by saying that the cricketer-turn-politician had done many mistakes while in power which he should realise and admit to facing the accountability.

The former star batsman suggested the PTI chairman choose a good team to implement his ‘good vision’ for Pakistan.

The former all-rounder praised the administrative skills of PM Shehbaz Sharif once again and said that he has always been a fan of the PML-N president.

He said in a video message on his YouTube channel that Imran Khan is still his ideal as a cricketer and as a national, all individuals are bound to respect the present ruler as he is representing Pakistan across the globe.

Afridi said that he chose to join professional cricket after being inspired by Imran Khan, otherwise, he would not be able to gain such fame as a cricketer. He added that he has always appreciated Khan’s good initiatives like Shaukat Khanum, especially Sehat Insaf Card but he also reserved the right to criticise his bad policies.

He asked critics not to convert the difference of opinion into hatred and freedom of speech is a sign of a civilised society. The people should exhibit tolerance for the difference of opinion of every individual.
