    "Shahid Afridi should not use offensive words for India's Prime Minister" : Danish Kaneria

    Think Before Speaking on Any Matter': Danish Kaneria Slams Shahid Afridi

    Danish Kaneria slammed Shahid Afridi for his speech against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi

    Cricketnext Staff |May 26, 2020, 4:00 PM IST

    Former Pakistan legspinner Danish Kaneria slammed Shahid Afridi for his speech against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his recent visit to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).

    Kaneria, serving a life-ban for spot-fixing in Englandís County cricket, said Afridi should quit all ties with cricket if he wants to be a politician.

    "Shahid Afridi should think before speaking on any matter. If he wants to join politics then he should quit all ties with cricket. It is important to stay away from cricket if you are speaking like a politician. Speeches like these create a negative image of Pakistan cricket not only in India but also around the world,Ē Kaneria told India TV.

    Kaneria also questioned Afridi's 'friendship' with Indian cricketers like Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh. Afridi had taken the help of the duo recently for his charity work, and Kaneria said it was wrong on his part to talk ill of the Indian Prime Minister in this backdrop.

    "He appealed for help from them and after getting the help you end up saying things about their country and PM. What sort of friendship is this?Ē asked Kaneria.

    Yuvraj and Harbhajan had blasted Afridi too, saying they'll 'never again' come out to help Afridi.

    Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficialĎs comments on our Honíb PM @Narendramodi ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words. I made an appeal on your behest for the sake of humanity. But never again.

    Jai Hind 🇮🇳

    Meanwhile, Kaneria hoped cricketing ties between India and Pakistan resume.

    "Cricketing ties between the two countries should resume. India and Pakistan have some political tension between them, which the government of both countries should resolve with dialogue so that cricket can return."

    Agreed, every time I see Kohli with his over the top praise for Amir however talented he might be or constantly calling Wasim as one of the greatest bowlers of all time or even some Indian cricket fanatics waiting for the dynamic players like Sharjeel and Umar to make a comeback or every time I hear how talented Asif was etc etc I have the same feel. Totally agree with you on this.

    No you don't, Wasim wasn't a convicted match fixer, yet he was the first name you vomited out. The others you mentioned all at least have some talent or ability which would make them stand out, Keneria had a pretty poor international career, so that is why I find it hard to understand how he would have an Indian fan base. Although I can hazard a guess....

    Poor international career? as in being the 4th highest wicket taker for Pakistan ever in test cricket.

    Considering the enviable bowling culture in Pakistan thatís a pretty solid feat donít you think?

    I donít really care. I donít consider Kaneria an ATG by any means but a guy who has nearly 300 test wickets would indicate that the player had some skill level and talent donít you think?

    Also Kaneria had a poor international career. Just because he is a hindu won't change this fact.

    Nobody cares what these cricketers think. Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar and Gambhir are especially loudmouth rabble rousers who are more noise and little substance.

    If this Covid thing had happened in 2000 and not 2020 there would be no social media to feed their sad lives.

    Kaneria thinks we shouldn't call out a Pakistan-hating Islamophobe because "it doesn't look good", I hate this subservient attitude. He would never fit in America/the West where athletes and celebrities voice their opinions freely and use whatever language to condemn a head of state.

    Have you heard Afridiís views about women, Hindus or Indians in general in the past?

    Either Afridi can go the political route like Gambhir and express his ideological stand or if he is trying to come across as this philanthropist Working towards world peace chose his words carefully.

    If Afridi can say whatever he wants so can Kaneria unless there are different rules on freedom of speech.

    Kaneria is a convicted fixer and should be kept away for bringing the game to disrepute but isnít a convicted criminal who doesnít deserve to voice his opinion. In fact the ones who served actual jail term are doing fine so I think he has a valid grudge.

    Okay and wth am I saying or you don't understand English? Afridi can say whatever the heck he wants, Kaneria doesn't have to impose his subservient "oh nos what will everyone think" vedic morality on the rest of us.

    He was a poor bowler for Pakistan, I was actually a big supporter of his for the longest time, but he invariably let the team down. But then I had no idea he was a fixer, now it makes more sense why despite having some genuine talent, he never really produced against the big teams.

    Regardless, I don't see why his mediocre career should have won him fans in India. Ironically the one good performance he ever turned up was in India where he demolished your team alongside....guess who? Afridi.

    He should be supporting his former team mate rather than slurping the backside of a PM who is openly hostile to his nation.

    I see it as a positive. He is expressing an extremely unpopular opinion without any fear, despite being a part of very small minority in his country. In contrast, across the border, even sensible Hindu celebrities have given in to extremist majoritarian sentiment to avoid persecution.

    His cricket stats are irrelevant here. I can only think of religious angle for supporting the hostile PM of an enemy nation. Or just hatred for Pakistan. Some minorities end up hating their country when they feel marginalized, which may or may not be because of their religion alone.

    Indian muslims will try to stay away from this for obvious reasons. But Navjot Singh Sidhu tried praising Imran Khan not too long ago. I remember some people who are defending Kaneria now were calling Sidhu an average player back then.

    He should have used this freedom of speech granted to him more wisely than supporting someone who is anti Pakistan. A minority should be more careful about displaying their loyalty.

    Long time back when india was touring pakistan, an indian journalist asked him how does it feel to be a hindu in pakistan. He snapped back at the journo, who was a muslim, asking how does it feel to be a muslim in india?

    Kaneria should leave Pakistan for India. He is responsible for his current state, he got done for fixing by the ECB. There is no point saying stuff weekly! His ban wont get over turned as the ECB is involved. This weekly drama is getting annoying; pack your bags and leave. Modi is a known extremist so Kaneria can shut it. Indians also need to realise that if a man is not loyal once; he will never be loyal.

    Pakistani Hindus face discrimination in India, they get labelled "Pakistani" over there even after gaining Indian citizenship.

    Who cares? If someone sees the grass greener on the other side then they should leave. I do realise that they have a tough life in India but thats not our issue if they make the choice. Kaneria is giving a negative image of Pakistan and no country would have tolerated such an individual.

    I admire how confidently you are quoting that as a fact lol.

    Last time I checked Adnan Sami who is obviously not a Hindu doing well for himself without any bias tbh. Who knows he would have been replaced by some Turkish singer anyways had he been part of the Pakistani entertainment circuit

    You can not really compare a celebrity to a common person. I have seen documentarys that show Hindus from Pakistan who migrated being discriminated against in India.

    Telling someone to not voice their opinion is not an admiriable opinion, he's telling Afridi to shut up and respect Islamophobe Modi. Kaneria has his right to speak but he has no right tell someone else what to do. He won't understand because the democratic principle of free choice and the vedic culture of conformity don't blend.

    Kaneria has a right to give his opinion as a PK but he doesn't have the right to ask others to give their opinions. He can disagree if he wants as unlike Ind we are a free country but he has no right to tell others what they can and can't talk about.

    No beause Kaneria is defending Islamophobe and the Butcher of Gujarat Modi. Has nothing to do with religion, perhaps he's trying to weaponize his background to get support from Hindu nationalists in India.

    I donít think the concern here is Kaneria getting a second chance. Most Indians at least on cricket forums believe all fixers should be banned regardless of race,age,gender,religion,nationality etc etc from what I have come across.

    So on the contrary the point raised is if most fixers With way worse crimes have gotten away why is Kaneria the only one banned?

    New perspective for you I guess.

    It is not a new perspective and I hope your comprehension skills are enhanced in the near future. Danish is banned by the ECB, may be the BCCI should get his banned over turned. No one else got banned by the ECB.

    As if lala will retract his comments on Modi. And btw, I never admired Kaneria's opinion.

    Why should the BCCI care. He wasnít a test cricketer who took nearly 300 wickets for India. Is he? Trust me had that been the case, he would have been alright even if his name was Danish Khan or Daniel Kahn.

    Isnít the crime for fixing jail time in the UK? You had players getting arrested and they are back in the system. Kaneria is banned by ECB which clearly tells me his offense was lesser. Look for the nth time, all fixers should be banned but clearly if you are giving up on a guy who is your 4th highest wicket taker ever because a county board banned him then that looks suspicious given the track record of minorities in Pakistan.

    Nope. Pakistanis are criticising Kaneria because he is criticising a former team mate while defending an affirmed enemy of Pakistan. If Kaneria is going to take sides here, should always be with his nation and Pakistan comrades regardless of religion.

    You don't defend an enemy who sent warplanes to bomb your country.

    I absolutely used respect. I described him as an affirmed enemy of Pakistan, and that is probably how he would like to be seen in India. Hence sending pilots to bomb Pakistan territory. Somewhat unsuccessfully it is true, but the intent was there all the same.

    I think staying in the limelight is a defense mechanism for Kaneria to be honest. Get eyeballs and stay safe seems to be his approach. I might do the same too if I was in his situation.

    Funny that Pakistanís biggest non-Muslim celebrity has to call our bias every other day. This is say the equivalent of Amir Khan or SRK or even Shami calling out help from Pakistan every other day. Obviously Kaneria is not in the league of these names but just an apples to apples of Pakistanís biggest minority celebrity vs Indiaís

    Stay safe He was perfectly safe when he was quiet for the past few years.

    By his own admission, he has started talking now because he has no skills besides cricket and because of his ban, he can't really do much related to cricket.

    Everything else is just soundbites to increase his popularity for YouTube. As he has admitted, he is financially struggling so I suppose YouTube earnings will be helpful for him. It is a tactic that is paying off reasonably well. Go to any of his videos and you will find tons of comments from his newfound Indian fans

    For a guy who played cricket all his life, what other skill sets are you expecting.

    Also whatís wrong in having a YouTube channel and aiming for viewers/subscribers, isnít that what every whoís who of Pakistan cricket doing these days?

    I never watch his YouTube channel but I did hear some points he raised on Sports Tak with Vikrant Gupta and he does have a valid point about all the others who were let off the hook.

    They won't be criticising Pakistani colleagues while championing the PM of an enemy state. So no, it's not apples to apples.

    The skills comment was meant as a clarification, not a criticism.

    He is free to have his own YouTube channel, and yes, other Pakistani cricketers also have YouTube channels where they engage in overt praise of Indian cricketers. But by defending Indian politicians, he has now entered a wholly different territory and he should be prepared for the blowback that he will face as a result.

    This is because in the Grand Scheme of things - he is literally NOTHING. No one cares about what he says - maybe they did when he said it first but its lost its importance since then.
