Cricket is not for my daughters, feminists can say whatever they want to
Former Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi once again is facing criticism. This time not about his age, or Javed Miandad but for not letting his daughters play outside sports. The legendary all-rounder, Shahid Afridi’s autobiography titled ‘Game Changer’ has been the talk of the town. It has started many controversies and now facing criticism by the feminists again.
Shahid Afridi has four beautiful daughters named Ansha, Ajwa, Asmara and Aqsa Afridi. In the book “Game Changer”, Afridi states that he will not allow any of his daughters to play outdoor sports because of social and religious reasons.
Shahid Afridi “It’s for social and religious reasons that I’ve made this decision regarding my daughters not competing in public sporting activities and their mother agrees with me. The feminists can say what they want; as a conservative Pakistani father, I’ve made my decision”

Here are some of the Tweets
Don’t be a Shahid Afridi to your daughter, sister, or wife. Let your women be. Also, it’s alright to have housemaking as a purpose, so if she’s happy doing so, there’s no harm. But as you know, gender roles are transforming rapidly, for good. So don’t get nervous, & be a partner.

Not to forget you’re a tyrant and an idiot. Why is it even up for debate? You went to meet a fan girl you used to talk on phone (although he was a boy, serves you right). But your daughters can’t participate in Sports.
