Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi called on caretaker Prime Minister Anwar ul Haq Kakar at the PM Office in Islamabad on November 2, 2023.
According to a PM Office statement, Afridi and Kakar discussed a range of issues, including the promotion of sports in Pakistan, the welfare of former athletes, and the importance of education for youth.
Afridi expressed his support for Kakar and his government, and pledged to work together to promote positive change in Pakistan.
The meeting between Afridi and Kakar is significant for a number of reasons.
First, Afridi is one of the most popular and respected public figures in Pakistan. He is a national hero and a role model for millions of people, especially young people.
Second, Afridi is a philanthropist who has done a lot of work to promote education and sports in Pakistan. He has established his own foundation, the Shahid Afridi Foundation, which works to provide underprivileged children with access to education and sports facilities.
Third, Kakar is a caretaker prime minister, which means that he is in a neutral position and is not affiliated with any political party. This makes him an ideal figure to mediate between different political factions and to bring people together.
The meeting between Afridi and Kakar is a positive sign for Pakistan. It shows that the country’s leadership is open to working with all stakeholders to promote positive change. It also shows that Afridi is willing to use his platform to make a difference in Pakistan.
It is still too early to say what concrete results will come out of the meeting, but it is clear that it is a step in the right direction.
