Shoaib Akhtar has urged people to help each other amid the spread of the Corona Virus across the globe. The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic has affected the entire world, and in such situations of crises, Akhtar wants his fans and citizens all across the globe to help everyone possible irrespective of the person’s economic status or religion. Akhtar posted a video on his youtube channel where he shared his wishes of seeing people together work in harmony and adhere to the guidelines shared by the respective governments and health authorities.
“Request all my fans all across the globe. Coronavirus is a global crisis and we have to think as a global force, rise above religion. Lockdown is happening so that the virus does not spread. If you are doing interaction and meeting in places, it will not help,” Akhtar said on his channel.
“If you are hoarding things, please think about the daily wage workers. Stores are empty. What is the guarantee that you will live after three months? Think about the daily wage worker, how will he feed his family? Think about people, time to be a human, not Hindu, Muslim. People will have to help each other, collect funds. Stop hoarding.
“Rich will still survive; how will the poor survive? Have faith. We are living like animals, live like humans. Try to be helpful, please stop storing stuff. It is the time we look after each other. No time to be divided, we have to live as humans,” he added.
Earlier, Akhtar had bashed the Chinese nationals as the one responsible for creating the virus that has affected the human species and brought the world to a standstill.
“I don’t understand why you have to eat things like bats, drink their blood and urine and spread some virus across the globe…I’m talking about the Chinese people. They have put the world at stake. I really don’t understand how you can eat bats, dogs, and cats. I’m really angry,” Akhtar said in a previous video.
“The whole world is at risk now. The tourism industry has been hit, the economy is badly affected and the whole world is going towards a lockdown. I’m not against the people of China but I’m against the law of animals. I understand this may be your culture but this is not benefitting you now, it is killing humanity. I’m not saying you boycott the Chinese but there has to be some law. You cannot go on and eat anything and everything,” he added.
