KARACHI: Former all-rounder Shahid Afridi has requested to limit concluding ceremony to national songs in view of the Muslims massacre in New Zealand mosques.
Cricket star in his message on social media micro-blogging site Shahid Afridi said that as many as nine Pakistanis were also killed in the horrific killing in hands of white extremists.
As we mourn the loss of innocent lives in the #ChristChurchTerrorAttack & 9 Pakistanis’ Shahadat in it. Request the organizers of #HBLPSL to observe one minute silence as a token of respect and would also be better if they can honor them by limiting the concert to National songs.
