On the eve of India’s Independence Day, former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi took to Twitter to convey his heartfelt wishes for all the Indian citizens. Afridi not only wished India on its 71st Independence Day but also called for peace, tolerance, and love between the two nations.
Every year, the Asian neighbours celebrate their Independence Days within a gap of 24 hours of each other.
“Happy Independence Day India! No way to change neighbours, let’s work towards peace, tolerance and love. Let humanity prevail.# HopeNotOut,” tweeted Afridi.
