In one of the biggest security operations in recent history, Indian Army killed 12 terrorists in the Valley on April 1. The operations came out as a big blow to terror groups such as Hizbul Mujahideen and the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
In a tweet on April 3, Afridi blasted at the recent clampdown on terrorists in the Kashmir Valley, urging the UN to intervene in the matter. Here is his tweet:
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?

Recently, some pictures of Shahid Afridi went viral in which the player was seen dining with officials of ISI’s top bosses. The pictures were evidently captured on March 27.

In those pictures, Afridi was seen with Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, Director General of Inter-Services Public Agency (ISPR) which is Pakistan Army’s media wing. He was even seen with some ISI agents as well. Earlier on March 25, they all were spotted watching a cricket match together.
Apparently, Afridi tweeted against the Indian forces on April 3, prior to being seen with the ISI officials. The pictures can be a proof that the ISI agency and Pakistan’s army may have used Afridi to spread ill against India.
Indian cricket fraternity had lashed out at Afridi on Twitter for his tweet.
Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What’s there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!

Legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar said: “We have got capable people to manage and run our country. No outsider needs to know or tell us what we need to do.”
Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always. Kashmir is the pious land where my forefathers were born. I hope @SAfridiOfficial bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence. 🙏

In an interview with a leading Indian news channel, when Afridi was asked about his comments on Pakistan’s involvement in Kashmir, he acknowledged Pakistan’s role in spreading terrorism in Kashmir Valley by saying that Pakistan is not there to set up samosa and pakoda stalls. His comments on the situation and involvement with ISI agents can be proofs to his links with the Pakistan’s intelligence agency.
