Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi has wished India on its 70th Independence Day and urged everyone to work towards peace, tolerance and love between the two nations as there was ”no way to change neighbours.”
“Happy Independence Day India! No way to change neighbours, let’s work towards peace, tolerance and love. Let humanity prevail. #HopeNotOut,” tweeted Afridi.
Every year, the Asian neighbours celebrate their Independence Days within a gap of 24 hours of each other.
While Pakistan celebrated its Independence Day on Monday, India is celebrating its 70th Independence Day on Tuesday.
Both the countries have witnessed several wars and conflicts in the past 70 years of their relationship.
Afridi’s tweet and wish generated a lot of reactions from both sides of the border. Though there were some usual trolls and haters, most reactions were positive and appreciative.
