Srinagar: Indian cricketer-duo Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh were Tuesday highly trolled for supporting Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi’s foundation, which helps needy.
However, several people also supported them for ‘forgetting’ borders in these tough times.
Yuvraj Tuesday posted a video on his official Twitter handle, asking people to help Afridi’s foundation. Earlier Harbhajan had also extended his support to Afridi and his foundation.
The hashtag #ShameonYuviBaji was trending on Twitter post this, while another one, saying, #ISupportYuvi also made rounds.
Here are some Tweets;
“Yes humanity first. Supporting a guy who talks shit about India and Indian army. But tf care #humanityfirst support terrorist they are also humans good or bad doesn’t matter #ShameOnYuviBhajji,” tweeted a user.
Another wrote: “In the times when exports have been banned, when resources are not enough for our own country people like @YUVSTRONG12 & @harbhajan_singh are asking us to donate to @SAfridiOfficial? Guess its time to cancel their names out of ‘People who inspire List’.”
“Shame on you Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh, people of India gave you Name, Fame & all, and you are requesting People to Donate for PAKISTAN, why not for INDIA???” said another user.
“He just made an appeal to donate, it’s your wish to donate or not.. Shahid afridi also donated some money to YouweCan foundation to fight against cancer & his signed jersey Thumbs up Humanity first Thumbs up #IStandWithYUVI #WearewithyouYUVI,” wrote a user.
“So Yuvi is Anti-National. So His Dedication & fight was fake,His Tears after winning the WC was fake,His Comeback in Blue jersey was fack,His foundation for poor & Cancer people of India is a fake service…At last the World is in Danger,” said a user, referring to Yuvraj braving cancer symptoms to help India win their second World Cup in 2011. Yuvraj later fought the deadly diseased to come back and play cricket.
“People cannot even donate a single rupee & yet talking about Yuvraj Singh who established Non-profitable organization YOUWECAN
