Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who unintentionally made casteist remark on Indian Yuzvendra Chahal during a social media chat with Indian team opener Rohit Sharma about 20 days ago, has issued a clarification on Friday. About 15 days after the case, a hashtag trended on social media, #Yuvraj_Maafi_Maango. Not only this, but the matter also increased when a police complaint was lodged against Yuvraj on Thursday. In such a situation, Yuvraj himself has come forward and he has apologized to the Indian fans, especially those hurt by that racist word. However, Yuvraj Singh made racist remarks not against someone from a particular caste, but against players like Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

On Friday, Yuvraj Singh issued an apology on his social media account, stating, “This is to clarify that I have never believed in any kind of disparity, be it on caste, colour, creed or gender. I have given and continue to spend my life for the welfare of the people. I believe in the dignity of life and respect each Individual without exception. “
Yuvi further wrote in the post, “I understand that while I was having a conversation with my friends, I was misunderstood, which was unwarranted. However, as a responsible Indian I want to say that if I have unintentionally hurt anybody’s sentiments or feelings, I would like to express regret for the same.”
