Afridi in hot waters again after controversial comments on Kashmir

Shahid Afridi Takes a Jibe at Imran Khan Says'Pakistan Doesn't Need Kashmir Can't Even Look After its 4 Provinces

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.

Earlier this year, he tweeted on the matter and wrote, "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir". Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self-determination and independence. "Wonder where is the United Nations & other global bodies and why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?" "Kashmir belongs to Pakistan", he added.

Several Indian cricketers had expressed strong disapproval over Pakistan cricketer's remarks.
