India celebrated its 72nd Independence Day yesterday. The whole country was filled with the feeling of love and patriotism towards the nation. People remembered our freedom fighters and also thanked our soldiers who are there to protect us day and night. People wished each other via WhatsApp, Facebook, Calls etc. Celebrities too took to their Social media handles to wish the special day to all Indians. However, we got one wish from cross borders as well. And it was from former Pakistani cricket player Shahid Afridi.

He took to his Twitter account and wished all the Indians with a heartfelt note. He wrote, “Happy Independence Day to India, our neighbors across the border. I sincerely hope that from this year onwards, both Pakistan and India work towards resolving their issues for a better, peaceful and prosperous region where India Pak cricket matches can also be frequently held.”

His tweet showed the call out for love and peace from both nations and the big-hearted Indians were overwhelmed to see this. Soon, after he posted this message, Indians started praising him for the spirit he showed by this tweet.
