Shikhar Dhawan is the latest Indian cricketer who has hit out at Shahid Afridi for his controversial comments on Kashmir during a recent visit to the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
According to India today, A video clip of Afridi spewing venom among the people at a village in the PoK and instigating them has gone viral on social media. The former Pakistan captain can be heard criticising Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for deploying a huge force in the Kashmir valley.
"Is waqt jab saari duniya corona se lad rahi hai us waqt bhi tumko kashmir ki padi hai. Kashmir humara tha humare hai aur humara hi rahega. Chaiyeh 22 crore le ao, humara ek, sava lakh ke barabar hai . Baaki ginti apne aap kar lena," Dhawan tweeted. He is the third high-profile Indian cricketer to slam Afridi after Harbhajan Singh and Gautam Gambhir.
"Pakistan has 7 lakh force backed by 20 crore people says 16-year-old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 years. 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?" Gambhir tweeted.
While Harbhajan said that he has severed "whatever little ties," he had with Afridi. "This is very upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister. This is just not acceptable.
This man (Afridi) is talking ill about our country. All I have to say is we have nothing to do with Shahid Afridi. He has no right to speak ill against our country and he should stay in his country and limits," Harbhajan told India Today. Harbhajan was recently involved in a charity event with Afridi's foundation and was also criticised on social media for being a part of it. But Bhajji clarified that his appeal to help people was a gesture to help those the needy in these trying times.
"To be honest, he (Adridi) asked us to make an appeal for his charity. In good faith, we did it for humanity and for the people suffering due to the Coronavirus. "Even our Prime Minister has said that Coronavirus is a fight that extends beyond borders, religions and caste. So we were very clear with the cause that we were promoting, which was simply to help those in crisis," Harbhajan said.
