KARACHI: Former Pakistan captain Shahid Khan Afridi on Monday faced criticism by Twitterati after he shared pictures of a lion chained at his resident in Karachi.

Afridi shared some pictures showing him sitting beside a pet lion while in another picture the chained lion is shown behind his daughter. Besides, in another picture where he was hand feeding a baby deer.

“Great to spend time with loved ones. Best feeling in the world to have my daughter copy my wicket taking celebrations. And yes don’t forget to take care of animals, they too deserve our love and care,” he tweets.

Afridi was criticised for for keeping wild animals as pets at home, which seems unethical to general public as they cannot come to terms with the fact that such animals who are used to an open habitat are caged inside a house as a symbol of lavish life for Afridi.
