As Pakistan Super League’s kicked off with the opening ceremony on Thursday at the National Stadium Karachi, netizens reacted to the underwhelming hosting by Ahmed Godil and quickly made him meme fodder on Twitter. Not very pleased with his performance, people were quick to criticize him. The host gave reply to his haters on his social media handle. He posted the picture from the venue and said in his social media statement that people were trolling him because of pure jealousy.
“Two thumbs up for all the people who are trolling me and trying to mock me just because of pure jealousy and can’t digest how someone can reach till here but this is because of immense hardwork and dedication. Thank you for all the love, hate, respect, disrespect and support!! In the end : Mehnat kar , hasadd na kar! (Work hard, don’t get jealous).”
However, after this things turned more dirty when someone leaked his personal mobile number on social media and he started to get abuse phone calls and messages. After this Ahmed Godil, took to his social media handle and posted an emotional open letter long side a video. He asked netizens about his mistake and what went wrong during ceremony on his side. He also mentioned that he worked hard and tried his best to give his 100 percent. Concluding his letter, he requested people to not be personal or not to abuse him and his family.
Ahmed Godil Said In His Open Letter:
“Assalam o alaikum everybody. This video is in the response of the most talked event that happened yesterday in Karachi. Hosting HBL PSL was not an easy task for me, and I am still in a state of shock and surprised that why are people trolling me? What went wrong? Where did I make any mistake? Was wearing sunglasses on the stage an issue? Talking loudly was an issue where you all thought I was mimicking our Prime Minister Imran Khan? Or me doing a long speech was an issue?? Please criticize but in a constructive manner! Don’t be personal or don’t please abuse me and my family for God’s sake!”
Adding further he said, “I know PSL event is one of the biggest and people are very sensitive about it and have high expectations regarding it. InshaAllah I will try to do a better job in the future and reach those expectations! I am a pure Pakistani by heart and would like to just request you to please promote and appreciate your young talent instead of mocking them otherwise any new talent will be afraid of coming forward thinking that the 22 crore people will troll them! In the end, thank you to all my friends and family members and my PSL team for supporting me and being my strength in facing all these challenges.”
