Shahid Afridi of Pakistan dismissed the propaganda surrounding his viral photo with members of the Pro-Israel group, North West Friends of Israel, amid the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

The sequence began when the Zionist group in the UK posted a photo of its members with Afridi on social media.

“Pakistani international cricketer Shahid Afridi stopped to offer his support for our call to release the hostages at our NWFOI vigil last Sunday in Manchester. Shahid is pictured with NWFOI co Chair Raphi Bloom and deputy Chair Bernie Yaffe. Thank you for your support, Shahid!” it wrote in the caption.

Afridi promptly responded to the controversial post by rejecting the claims and expressing his concern for the situation in Palestine.

Shahid Afridi wrote, “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”

He added, “Seeing innocent lives in Palestine suffer is truly heartbreaking. Thus, any photo or association shared by in Manchester does not reflect my support for any situation where human lives are at stake.”

The former cricketer mentioned that he takes pictures with fans from all around the world, and in this instance, “the situation was no different.”

“I pray for peace, I pray for an end to this war, I pray for freedom,” he stated.

Since October 17, Israeli forces have reportedly killed over 37,000 people in Gaza, predominantly children and women.
