Lahore: Shahid Afridi, Pakistani skipper on arrival to Pakistan after World Cup was talking to media on airport.

"When Pakistan follows Indian culture, Indian dramas and movies , even weddings are done in Indian way then why people hate India so much". Afridi said to media.

"Loss and victory is one thing, yes it was important to win but why people consider loss against India as shame, why they don't see even stronger teams being defeated by us?" he added.

Indian people are highly pleased to see such cordial behaviour from Pakistani Team and whole nation. "Afridi has lost the match, but won our hearts" Indian people said.

Pakistan lost semi final against India on wednesday, whole nation was dissapointed but they welcomed Shahid Afridi and his men with great enthusiasm and showed to whole world that Pakistanis are not Extremists.
