Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir... It can't even manage its four provinces! Watch how Shahid Afridi triggered a controversy over Kashmir!

Former Pakistan international cricketer Shahid Afridi has given a lesson to Prime Minister Imran Khan on the Kashmir dispute.

In a video tweeted by an ARY journalist, Afridi appeared to suggest that Pakistan should allow Kashmir to be independent country because Pakistan hadn’t been able to even manage its four provinces.

Afridi was addressing students at British Parliament in London when he made the remarks, according to a report in NDTV. “Let Kashmir be independent. At least humanity will be alive. Let people not die…Pakistan doesn’t want Kashmir… It can’t even manage its four provinces…What is the big thing is insaaniyat (humanity). People who are dying there, it is painful. Any death, be it from any community, is painful,” Afridi said, according to a report in NewsX.

“I say Pakistan doesn’t want Kashmir. Don’t give it to India either. Let Kashmir be independent. At least humanity will be alive. Let people not die. Pakistan doesn’t want Kashmir. It can’t even manage its four provinces. The big thing is insaaniyat (humanity). People who are dying there, it is painful. Any death, be it from any community, is painful,” Afridi said in the video uploaded on social media.

Afridi later said his comments were “misconstrued by Indian media”

“My clip is incomplete [and] out of context as what I said before that is missing,” he tweeted. “Kashmir is unresolved dispute [and] under brutal Indian occupation. It must be resolved as per [the] UN resolution. Myself along with every Pakistani support Kashmiri freedom struggle. Kashmir belongs to Pakistan.”

Afridi has a history of controversial statements. 

In April, he took to Twitter to express anguish over the ‘appalling and worrisome’ situation in Jammu and Kashmir after clashes between protesters and security forces. Afridi, tweeted, “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 int bodies & why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?.”

Afridi also faced a backlash from his own countrymen after giving a controversial statement during the 2016 World T20, saying he was showered “more love in India than back home”, which caused a massive uproar in Pakistan.
