While People in Pakistan are elated with Sarfraz’s act but it is the Indian journalist Tarek Fateh, who seems to be displeased by him for appearing in Kurta Shalwar to meet Queen Elizabeth when other skippers have appeared in suits in accordance with the western culture.

Shahbaz Taseer rallied in support of Sarfraz Ahmed and gave an explicit reply to Fateh.

“Mom said she’d block me if I abused on twitter unless it was Football related. I’m going to miss her. Fuck this moron #PakistanZindabad,” wrote Taseer in his tweet.

Meanwhile, this is how Twitter showed love to Sarfraz Ahmed:

“This makes my day, what a worth seeing the moment. Nations build up due to following own Culture. We will change together Insha Allah,” wrote a Twitter user.

“I don’t understand why ppl criticizing #SarfarazAhmed for wearing shalwar kameez in #CWC19 ceremony, rather it reminded me of the great #DrSalam who wore his traditional dress while receiving the first #NobelPrizefor #Pakistani. One should be proud of one’s cultural heritage!” pointed a Twitter user in her tweet.
