A sudden uproar has been noticed in social media of Pakistan about latest visit of star cricketer Shahid Afridi to General (R) Pervez Musharaf in his Karachi residence. Sources claim that Shahid Afridi visited Musharaf to enquire about the health of his mother.
Although the move of visiting Musharaf wouldn’t have been a strange one but under the circumstances where government of Pakistan and majority of the media are against Pervez Musharaf trying to convict him of treason, the move might be devastating in damaging Shahid Afridi’s good image.
Shahid Afridi’s inclination towards Tableeghi Jamaat has earned him a very good image throughout the country and in addition his last few match winning knocks earned him a reputation that will not be forgotten soon.
Many people on social media are criticizing Afridi’s this move heavily yet there are some people who are talking in favor of this move of Shahid Afridi. These people are those who consider former president a good person for Pakistan and admire him.
Pervez Musharaf has been facing the violation of constitution cases in a special court and recently shifted to Karachi where he is safe and he is being treated. Before that he was confined at his farm house in Chak Shehzad Islamabad.
A few weeks ago General (R) Pervez Musharaf sought permission from the interior ministry of Pakistan and the special court to leave for United Arab Emirates in order to be with his mother who was ill but he was not granted the permission to leave the country due to legal concerns of the court and interior ministry.
