Shahid Afridi aims for betterment of Pakistan India ties

ISLAMABAD - Shahid Khan Afridi has once again called for the betterment of ties between Pakistan and India and vowed to spread the message of peace whenever possible.

Talking to *Dawn* over the phone from Toronto, the hard-hitting batsman described his recent meeting with Bollywood actor Salman Khan ─ in which, he said, Pak-India ties came under discussion ─ as very cordial.

"We were in agreement that celebrities should play their role towards the betterment of bilateral ties by speaking positively in the media," Afridi said.

"My aim of posting pictures with him (Salman) on social media was the same," Afridi, who is playing the local T20 league in Toronto, added.

On his engagements in Canada, the all-rounder said that the organisers of the ongoing T20 league wanted to expand the footprints of event across the country in which he is helping them.
