Shahid Afridi has been in the news for the wrong reasons. All thanks to his autobiography 'Game Changer'. Not very long ago, he was in the news for his statement on Gautam Gambhir where he got into a verbal spat with the former cricketer. Recently Shahid Afridi was in the news for his misogynistic remarks. Afridi had said, “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.”
Now, this surely did not go down well with the netizens and they labelled him as a hypocrite and misogynist. A few others handed the cricketer of the Egyptian footballer Mohamed Salah where his daughter Makka was seen scoring a goal by the end of the match between Liverpool vs Wolves. Like a proud father, Salah was left smiling ear-to-ear with that goal. Mo Salah's Daughter Makka Salah Scores 'Final Goal' of Premier League 2018-19 Season! Watch Cute Video and Pics.
Here’s how the netizens reacted.
For every Shahid Afridi who tries to control his daughter there is a Mohammed Salah who lets his daughter run free and enjoy her life. https://t.co/3bGgZMRKY3

“Be a father like Mo Salah not Shahid Afridi. Encourage your daughter she can do anything a male can. Don't put barriers up to what they can do. Be supportive,” read another tweet.

Pakistani author Binal Shah blasted at the cricketer for his views. Afridi replied to his critics and said, “I don’t judge anyone or meddle in people’s life. I expect the same too from others. May Allah bless my daughters and daughters/women all over the world! Let people be. My daughters are very precious to me! My life revolves around them.”
