    Javed Afridi hoping Darren Sammy converts to Islam

    Peshawar Zalmi owner Javed Afridi has asked his team’s fans to pray that franchise captain Darren Sammy converts to Islam as the two-time World T20 winner is studying the religion.

    In a video circulating on social media, Javed can be seen telling news channels that it is a big achievement for him to get Sammy to read about Islam.

    “I pray that he accepts Islam as his religion,” said Javed in the video. “He has complete knowledge and the way he is reading about Islam, I think it’s a biggest achievement. For me, for my whole team, it is a big thing.”

    Sammy was announced as the captain of the Peshawar team for the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) by former Pakistan T20I captain Shahid Afridi during the drafts.

    The former West Indies skipper then led Zalmi to the winner’s title in the PSL when his team beat Quetta Gladiators in the final at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

    Sammy’s attachment to the Peshawar team has been admirable as he also learned Pashto during his stay with the team players. Sammy was also one of the first players to say yes to playing the final in Lahore, claiming that he will follow Javed wherever he takes him.

    Peshawar were the only team of the PSL whose whole roster of foreign players agreed to playing the PSL final in Lahore.

    If Sammy is doing his research on Islam why not keep it as a secret and wait for his decision instead of creating an awkward situation for him? Maybe his family and people around him were not aware of this but now it's all over media thanks to Mr Javed Afridi habit of feeding media to remain in headlines.

    Typical, first it was about convincing Cricketers to come to Pakistan and then it went on to convincing them to convert to Islam.

    Before, these Cricketers were asked by the media .... Would you like to come to Pakistan? Nobody could refuse straight away.... Now they will be asked, when will you convert to Islam?

    Fear not my worried friend, Inshallah the PCB's dastardly plot will fail. I have full confidence that Sammy will resist Afridi's nefarious plotting and will remain a Christian ( or whatever he is).

    Every Muslim has to spread the message of Islam. Clearly Sammy is close to Javed Afridi and Shahid Afridi, spending a lot of time together this subject would naturally come up. Some of the comments on this thread are ridiculous and the same people would probably jump up in joy if an atheist was trying to give information to a religious person of his/her views.

    I wonder how much Javed Afridi knows about the political climate of St.Lucia or even can locate it on a map....clearly you make it seem like they ran out of conversations before they brought in the topic of religion.

    There is a pattern with mostly Pakistan cricket where religion has become as much of a part of it as corruption.

    When someone you're around goes off 5 times a day to pray, it's a natural conversation as to why someone would do this. There's no reason to assume politics or any other non sports related subject would come up before this.

    Not sure what pattern you have noticed but Muslims don't have to hide their way of life in area of life, cricket or at dinner with friends.

    True to some extent but why did he need to declare it to the whole world. If Sammy wants to convert, good for him but this puts so much pressure on him being close friend of both Afridis and last thing you want is someone converting purely to please his friends/boss.

    I doubt Sammy is the kind of chap to be pressurised into being converted. I think it's more of a case of them talking about it and having some banta. I haven't seen the video of his interview but perhaps this is just a follow up on a previous statement. I really don't see what the big deal is, converting to another religion is hardly a rare thing these days. People are too brainwashed by images of radical Muslims trying to convert others when in reality people who convert are very much clued up and do so on their own wishes.

    As long as you dont have double standards and will not mind your players being tried to be converted to Hinduism or Christanity. But wait, then you would support death sentences based on apostasy laws.

    BTW, Atheists do not convert at all. There is a huge, huge difference between an atheist sharing his views when he is the one under threat and pressure compared to a huge religion which puts pressure on non-believers in different ways inclouding inviting them as guests and them putting subtle pressure on them. Your ridiculous comparison shows the absolute hypocrisy of some religious people

    @Mamoon put it so aptly.

    I don't understand what is the need to convert everyone to Islam. It's like we're obsessed. The other thing I've noticed is that if we like someone, we really need to them to convert to Islam to continue liking them otherwise we must not be friends with infidels. Pathetic... Hope he doesn't bring shame to Pakistan.

    This is the problem with mullahs

    They see every interaction as an opportunity to do tableegh and hence you never know whether what they are saying is from their heart or to achieve an end

    Lets say Sammy is genuinely interested in Islam. Why publicise it and put pressure on him and make it awkward for him. Maybe he hasnt even told his close family members and now he is stuck in a rock and a hard place

    It isn't just Pakistani Muslim, but even Indian ones get really excited about the prospects of converting someone. I faked my interest in Islam to a Muslim girl (just to be nice), and for months, I would have her sending me hundreds of messages about Islam. Same was the case when I had a debate on religion with a Muslim friend, he acted the same and would often tag me to facebook posts.

    I for one am not against this. I find this passion about their belief quite beautiful (unless they overdo it).

    this pakistani obsession of converting non muslims is sickening.

    I have many Jamaican friends and have actually traveled to Caribbean Islands before. Its extremely hard to live the life of a pure Muslim there. Everything those guys do is a sin in Islam. May be in Trinidad & Tobago or Guyana where Indians form the majority of population, it is possible.
    Mr. Sammy is from St.Lucia. Too much partying going on there all the time.

    Many Indian Muslims from UP/Bihar and Bengal were on boat when British took them there. Many converted to Christianity at the port of arrival in Trinidad and Guyana. British did an awesome job of luring many converts when they arrived.

    Still, Hindus or Muslims or Christians, all Indians stick together there. Many Hindus have Muslim and Christian relatives and vice-a-versa

    Hindus or Muslims or Christains, all UP/Biharis and Tamils stick together there.

    No one is blaming him for that but why it has become public knowledge.

    I don't understand the obsession about converting people to Islam...Sammy supporting Pak cricket is what it is , What's with converting him ? What difference would it make to this Afridi guy what religion Sammy follows ? Accept people how they are when you invite them and make them feel welcome , don't invite them in and try to change them according to how you want to see them ..

    With religions like Islam and Christianity there is often an evangelical streak. Those who take it seriously will answer it's their duty to save their friends and families from Hell so maybe that is how Afridi is looking at it.

    No doubt it's annoying being confronted by over zealous religious folk in day to day life, I hate it. But on the other hand, when I see people bursting a blood vessel over it on PP I find it quite funny I have to confess.

    An employer putting on public pressure via national media for an employee to change their religion? Sounds moral and legal.

    Not bursting a blood vessel over it , I do come across a lot of jehovah's witnesses and religious people whp believe in these aspects but what I find odd is the lack of sensibility in making statements such as these on an international level involving athletes or celebrities or whosoever.
    Mixing religion with politics, sports is never a good idea and as a owner of the team his role is purely managerial and not mixing into someone's private beliefs. I can't imagine the uproar if owners of Mumbai Indians or Kolkatta Knightriders making statements of converting religion of their players in media - SRK / Juhi Chawla or Preity Zinta looking to convert Malinga/Gayle/ whoever it is......that's wrong.
    A maulvi sitting in the street saying this would be non sensical but a team owner inviting a player to play for his team and requesting his fans to pray for this is comical and mind boggling

    Let Sammy decide instead of this obsession of finding converts all the time. If Allah shows him the way he will accept Islam one day otherwise not.

    Your second sentence is complete nonsense and I challenge you to find any evidence from my posts on here to suggest this is the case. You seem to be ignorant of Islamic laws too, please don't make a fool out of yourself.

    BTW, Atheists do not convert at all. There is a huge, huge difference between an atheist sharing his views when he is the one under threat and pressure compared to a huge religion which puts pressure on non-believers in different ways inclouding inviting them as guests and them putting subtle pressure on them. Your ridiculous comparison shows the absolute hypocrisy of some religious people
    Of course you have met every atheist on the planet and are the spokesman for atheists. I know plenty of atheists who are known as militant atheists because they try to convince people to leave religion.

    How will Javed Afridi book his place in jannat, if he isn't able to convert even one pagan into a believer?

    Sammy gave a finger to hold, Afridi grabbed an entire arm. Shameless and disgraceful for him.

    Pp'ers are heart broken lol. Let someone convert from Islam to any religion but not from Islam to any religion is the view of many Muslims which shows the state of the ummah. How's times have changed since the golden era of Islam. We are the reason why we are being butchered everywhere. How true Allah said:
    ظھر الفساد فی البر والبحر بما کسبت ایدی الناس

    Only Allah knows what is in someone's heart but aqal says it's just a businessman playing to the gallery and saying what his target market likes to hear.

    It is absolutely fine if someone inspires a person of other faith to study Islam when they are away from the professional set up of a dressing room or simply when they are not on a professional assignment. That way it is their personal business. I personally dislike when such a thing is made public (probably without consent of the said player) and also using words like "its an achievement for me and my team" which shows that it is being said in somewhat a professional capacity.

    I know how the people who are condoning it feel like. I was one of them a while ago but i have grown out of it and realized that the beauty of doing God's work is to go about it quietly , away from the limelight and not boast about it.

    if Sammy wants to convert to Islam or is interested in the religion then thats a personal issue for him of course and if he did that decision is to be respected. Javed Afridi and him can discuss about Islam and Javed can put his case forward for the Islam he follows. But these type of statements just come across as uneducated. But you see this mentality from a lot of people online Cristiano Ronaldo donates to Palestinian charities oh hope he becomes a Muslim. Angelina Jolie speaks out in support of Pakistan oh i hope she becomes a Muslim. I get why they do it because of all the Hell Fire malarkey but it comes across as really cringeworthy.

    @MenInG its the type of comment you see from the uneducated common man on social media. Its just a social faux pas . You know this guy personally and Sammy has very publicly said he is a Christian in the past so it could cause awkwardness between him and family members or friends if they hear something like this in the media. If Javed wants to tell Sammy about Islam in private but he shouldnt publicise it that should be up to Sammy. Its just a dumb thing to blurt out to the Media.

    To you and all others who will say exactly what you said, read this:

    “He has complete knowledge and the way he is reading about Islam, I think it’s a biggest achievement."

    Where is the convincing??

    Nothing wrong if Sammy himself found peace in Islam but why can't they just keep religion private
    Is there a problem wearing save Gaza armbands?

    @Anik Sharma and justvas expected Javed has left himself with egg on his face. The Deobandi Islam Javed follows isnt really something compatible with Caribbean culture anyway.
