Back in August, the Narendra Modi-led Indian government took the decision of scrapping the Article 370, which gave Jammu and Kashmir the special status. Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, put forth the historic move in the Rajya Sabha. Even as the decision was greeted with glee happiness from a number of people, the reactions from Pakistan haven’t been all that great.

Imran Khan, the Pakistan Prime Minister, said that his Indian counterpart has made a ‘strategic blunder’. He also accused the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) of having a racist ideology. Moreover, threats of nuclear war have flown in from the other side of the border. Now, in a recent development, former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad has come up with a rather shock move.

In a video, which is going viral, Miandad was seen, saying “Pehle main balle se chakka marta tha, ab talwar se insaan maaronga (If I can hit six with a bat, why can’t I swing sword.. I used to hit sixes with bat, now I’ll kill humans with sword).” It now remains to be seen what are the reactions on Miandad’s stern words, which may not go down well with a number of people in India.

Tussle between India and Pakistan

Earlier this year, the shambolic Pulwama Attack soured the relationship between the two neighbouring countries. And now the Article 370 has created a lot of commotion and chaos. Recently, the Pakistan government organized ‘Kashmir Hour’ in the wake of the abrogation of Article 370 by India. As per a report, it took place at Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s gravesite.

Shahid Afridi, another former Pakistan all-rounder, came to the event in Pakistan military attire. In the gathering, the veteran said that the whole country is standing with the government and the military forces on the Kashmir issue. The Khyber Agency-born also lashed out at Narendra Modi, saying that the Indian PM and his supporters have badly harmed the image of India.

Afridi has also asked the Union Nations to speak up on the matter and put an end to the bloodshed, taking place in Kashmir. In a number of instances, he has been a recipient of severe criticism, especially from Gautam Gambhir, who feels that Afridi hasn’t matured and needs kindergarten tutorials.
