Shahid Afridi has been at the receiving end of severe criticism ever since he shared a message on Twitter pertaining to the tense scenario in Kashmir over the past few days. The former Pakistani cricketer blamed the United Nations (UN) and the other concerned authorities for not taking any actions to stop the ‘bloodshed’ in the Indian occupied part of Kashmir.

Yesterday, Gautam Gambhir, the skipper of the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL), ridiculed Afridi for his outrageous tweet. Moreover, Suresh Raina also gave a stern reply to Afridi. Recently, Rajiv Shukla, an official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has also opined on the matter.


“No significance of Shahid Afridi’s statement”- Shukla

The senior Congress leader dismissed Afridi’s statements, highlighting that the Pakistani all-rounder doesn’t have much idea about the current scenario in Kashmir. “There is no significance of Shahid Afridi’s statement. He has no knowledge about it. I don’t think he is aware of the exact situation that is happening in Kashmir,” Shukla iterated to Mumbai Mirror.

Meanwhile, he also said that Afridi should be more concerned about the abysmal state of the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir before commenting on India’s territory. “What is happening there, people are agitating there. They are deprived of food. They are living very miserable life. So, you should talk about your own country” he added while shaming Afridi’s message.

The brawls between India and Pakistan surrounding the Kashmir issue have grown with the passage of time. In 1947, following the independence of the two countries, Kashmir has been divided and have been a witness to several wars. Recently, 12 militants have been killed in Kashmir, which has created protests between the anti-government protesters and the security forces in the state.
