Like Harbhajan, former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh also found himself in the firing line after, he too lend his support to the Afridi Foundation and urged others to step forward and contribute. The left-handed Yuvraj also hit back at trolls on Wednesday.
“I really don’t understand how a message to help the most vulnerable gets blown out of proportion. All I tried to achieve via that message was to help people in our respective countries by providing healthcare, my intention was not to hurt anyone’s feelings. I am an Indian and I will always bleed blue and will always stand for humanity,” wrote Yuvraj on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, a 21-day lockdown has been clamped in India to not allow the deadly virus to spread.
