Dhawan, Harbhajan and Raina blast Shahid Afridi for Kashmir comments

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.

A video clip of Afridi’s comments on Kashmir went 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.

Dhawan is the third high-profile Indian cricketer to blast 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.

Meanwhile, Harbhajan said that he has cut “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.

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 told India Today.
