His remarks were directed towards Shahid Khan Afridi, who had congratulated PM Shehbaz Sharif for becoming the 23rd prime minister of the country.
شہباز شریف صاحب کو پاکستان کا 23واں وزیر اعظم منتخب ہونے پر مبارکباد پیش کرتا ہوں اور اُمید کرتا ہوں کہ وہ اپنی بہترین انتظامی صلاحیتوں کو بروکار لاتے ہوئے پاکستان کو موجودہ معاشی اور سیاسی بحرانوں سے نکالنے میں کامیاب ہوں گے ۔ #PakistanZindabad 🇵🇰 @CMShehbaz

He was severely criticised on social media by supporters of Imran Khan. Later, the former all-rounder had also issued a video statement following the online bashing.
He had stated that he was well aware of the response he will be getting for felicitating PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif on becoming the country’s prime minister.
“I have always seen Imran Khan as a leader but I reserve the right to disagree with his policies or ideology,” Afridi had said.
