Former Pakistan player Shahid Afridi had over the weekend set the cat amongst the pigeons when he visited a village in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and made politically loaded statements against and India and PM Modi. It seems like the former all-rounder is preparing for a second innings in politics much like Imran Khan.
In what can only be termed as a hate filled speech Afridi said “major illness is in the heart and mind of Modi than coronavirus and that disease is religion’s disease. He is doing politics about that disease and is at odds with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters and elders. He has to answer it.”
One man who wasn’t going to take this lying down was cricketer turned politician Gautam Gambhir. He slammed Afridi and took to twitter. He wrote ’16 years old man is saying 20 crore people are standing behind the Pakistani army of 7 lakh. Still begging for Kashmir for 70 years. Jokers like Shahid Afridi, Imran Khan, and Qamar Javed Bajwa can only spew venom against India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. These people make a fool to Pakistan people but won’t get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?
Pak has 7 lakh force backed by 20 Cr ppl says 16 yr old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 yrs. Jokers like Afridi, Imran & Bajwa can spew venom against India & PM @narendramodi ji to fool Pak ppl but won't get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?
