This NW Friends of Israel post created a buzz on social media and everyone was condemning it. Well, Shahid Afridi soon shared a clarification in which he said that he was passing by this vigil when a few foreigners asked him for a selfie and he listened to their humble request and snapped a picture. Read his words: “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. Unbelievable! Please don’t believe everything that is uploaded. Seeing innocent lives in Palestine suffer is truly heartbreaking. Thus, any photo or association shared by them does not reflect my support for any situation where human lives are at stake. I take pictures with fans from all over the globe, and this situation was no different. I pray for peace, I pray for an end to this war, I pray for freedom. #HumanityFirst #PeaceMiddleEast.
