The Indian cricket fraternity has come down hard on ex-Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi for his controversial remarks on Kashmir and PM Narendra Modi. The controversial cricketer, who has developed a knack of taking shots at India and PM Modi, recently visited Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, a part of the Kashmir which has been illegally occupied by India’s neighbours.

The former Pakistan international was reportedly in the region for providing essential items to the locals during the coronavirus pandemic. However, he used the opportunity to once again spew venom against India and PM Modi. In a video that has gone viral, Shahid Afridi could be seen talking ill about PM Modi.

“I am in your beautiful village, I am very delighted. I was planning to visit you all from a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease,” said Afridi before taking a shot at PM Modi, 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,” he added while also saying that Kashmiris from India were also supporting the Pakistani Army.

Not very surprisingly, Shahid Afridi is facing the heat for his comments and Indian cricketers have also made sure to slam him. A number of Indian cricketers took to Twitter to criticise Afridi.

Here are some of the reactions from the cricketers:

“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.”

Really disappointed by @SAfridiOfficial‘s comments on our Hon’b PM
@narendramodi 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

 

“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?”

“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!”
