Recently, in one of the most successful operations of Indian Army, 12 terrorists were killed in three separate encounters in Kashmir. Pakistan has trembled due to the encounters and as usual, Pakistanis started to condemn India for it. Usually, we witness Pakistan’s political personalities passing anti-Indian statements, but now, Pakistan’s sportsmen are also getting involved in the political matters, specifically regarding the Kashmir issue.

Days after Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi was slammed by the Twitterati for his controversial tweets on the Kashmir issue, former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has also intervened in the matter by his tweet on the microblogging site.



Saying that he is happy about Salman Khan’s release from the jail, he tweeted:


“Finally Salman Khan gets relief from honourable court. I wish one day in my life time I get news of Kashmir, Palestine, Yemen, Afghanistan and all the troubled area of the world are free because my heart bleeds for humanity and loss of innocent life.”



Supporting Salman Khan’s release, he shared his thoughts on the Kashmir issue as well. However, the tweet was later deleted by the cricketer.

In the next tweet, he requested the youth of both India and Pakistan to stand up and work together for peace between the two neighbouring countries.



Later, he again tweeted about the Kashmir issue saying, “Kashmir issues need to be resolved as per Kashmiri people wishes and both the governments need to address the situation within UN parameters.” He further urged the Hindus and Muslims to love each.



Earlier this week, Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi had tweeted about being worried for Kashmir Valley and wanted the UN to intervene in the matter.


According to a Pakistani website, Shahid Afridi showed his disinterest in Indian Premier League (IPL) by saying that he won’t play in IPL even if he was invited. He showed his utmost support for the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
