Known for his clear stand and taking problems head on the ever vocal former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has asked people to rise above the barriers of religion and race in order to battle the rampant coronavirus pandemic which has brought the world to its knees. Taking to his YouTube channel Akhtar asked people to not hoard stuff and be humane in their approach in these testing times.
“Request all my fans all across the globe. Coronavirus is a global crisis, we have to think as a global force, rise above religion. Lockdown is happening so that the virus does not spread. If you are doing interaction and meeting in places, it will not help,” he said.
“If you are hoarding things, please think about the daily wage workers. Stores are empty, what is the guarantee that you will live after 3 months. Think about the daily wage worker, how will he feed his family? Think about people, time to be a human, not Hindu, Muslim. People will have to help each other, collect funds. Stop hoarding,” he went on to add.
“Rich will still survive, how will the poor survive? Have faith. We are living like animals ,live like humans. Try to be helpful, please stop storing stuff. It is the time we look after each other. No time to be divided, we have to live as humans,” he further added.
