Smashed the TV inside wall after watching daughter imitate Hindu 'aarti': Shahid Afridi

An old video of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has surfaced on social media where he is confessing about breaking a TV at his home after he saw his daughter trying to imitate an "aarti" scene performed on an Indian daily soap.

In the video, Afridi is asked by a host if he ever broke a TV in his home, to which he replies: "I smashed my TV once, because of my wife. These daily soaps on Indian TV channel were quite popular then.

"I had asked my wife to watch them alone and not with the kids. I saw one of my kids performing 'aarti' while watching an Indian daily soap. I then smashed the TV inside the wall."

The video has been making rounds on social media, attracting criticism for many as they believe the former Pakistan all-rounder is making fun of the Hindu customs.

This comes at a time when former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar alleged that leg-spinner Danish Kaneria was discriminated within the team during their playing days because of his Hindu faith.

In an interview on PTV's show titled "Game on Hai", Akhtar alleged that there were many who did not want Kaneria to be part of the Pakistan team because of his Hindu faith, and that the spinner was never given due credit for his performances and was also constantly humiliated by his teammates.

Akhtar even said that some players even refused to partake food with Kaneria.

However, the 'Rawalpindi Express' later clarified that his comments were taken out of context and that there was never a culture within the team to discriminate anybody on the basis of race.
