Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi has been attacked by Indians by giving a statement against India. Earlier, Gautam Gambhir had given strong reaction to his tweet and now many prominent individuals have given a strong response to that tweet. On Tuesday i.e. 3 April, Shahid Afridi had tweeted on the Kashmir issue. The Pakistani cricketer said there was an ‘appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in India-occupied Kashmir’, and urged the United Nation to take actions.
His tweet reads “Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self-determination & independence. Wonder where is the UN & other international bodies & why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?”

Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always. It is the pious land where my forefathers were born. I hope Shahid bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence.
