Shahid Afridi,Afridi,Shahid Afridi Kashmir

This was not Afridi's first comment about Kashmir, In April this year, the former cricketer had urged the United Nations and other worldwide organisations to put a halt to the chaotic situation in Kashmir.

"Pakistan doesn't need Kashmir; it is not able to even handle the four provinces it has", Afridi can be heard saying in a video.

About the draconian laws prevailing in India-held Kashmir, such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA) that give total impunity to India's occupation machinery, President Khan told the delegation that an Indian soldier was at liberty to shoot and kill any person and nobody could hold him accountable for his act. Let Kashmir become its own country. At least humanity will be alive. Let people not die.

It is a high mileage but extremely sensitive subject in India as well as neighbouring Pakistan to talk about Kashmir, the region which borders both countries on either side. "Pakistan can't even manage its four provinces". The big thing is insaaniyat (humanity). "Any death, be it from any community, is painful", Afridi said in the video uploaded on social media.

His clarification came hours after his remarks in London went viral on social media. I'm passionate about my country and greatly value the struggles of Kashmiris.
