Afridi recently commented against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Kashmir during his visit to Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK). In a viral video, Shahid Afridi was seen criticizing the Indian government and PM Modi during the tour.

“I am in your beautiful village, I am very delighted. I was planning to visit you all for a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease,” said Afridi. He added, saying: “But the bigger disease is in Modi’s mind. Modi deployed 7 lakh soldiers in Kashmir, same as the total strength of Pakistani forces”.

After his remarks, the Indian cricket fraternity took a dig at him on Twitter and condemned his statements.

Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian batsman, tweeted: “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 @SAfridiOfficial.” (In this difficult time when the whole world is fighting the coronavirus, all you care about is Kashmir. Kashmir has been ours and it will always be ours. If you want Kashmir, bring your 22 crore people to the battle as our one man is equal to 125000 men.)



“Pak has 7 lakh force backed by 20 Cr ppl says 16 yr old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 yrs. 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?” Cricketer and Indian politician Gautam Gambhir said in a tweet.

Yuvraj Singh too tweeted: “Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial‘s comments on our Hon’b [email protected] ji. As a responsible Indian who has played for the country, I will never accept such words. I made an appeal on your behest for the sake of humanity. But never again. Jai Hind”

Indian batsman Suresh Raina also tweeted: “Gosh! What all a person must do to remain relevant! Even more so for a nation that is living on alms. So, better do something for your failed nation and leave #Kashmir alone. I am a proud Kashmiri and it is and will always remain an inalienable part of India. Jai Hind!”

Harbhajan Singh said during one of his interviews: “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.”
