On Tuesday, Afridi had grabbed the attention by his controversial tweets on ‘Kashmir’. The former Pakistan all-rounder had called for United Nations’ (UN) intervention on Kashmir issue after the Indian security forces killed 13 innocents in three gunfights. And his point was simple and clear.
Shahid Afridi always supporting the Indian cricketers the best way he could and motivating them by labeling Indian captain as a great human and welcoming them with good gestures.
“My relationship with Virat is not dictated by political situation. Virat is a fantastic human being and an ambassador of cricket for his country, just like I am for my country. He has always shown a lot of respect and has even gone out of his way to present a signed jersey for my foundation (Shahid Afridi Foundation),” Afridi had told PTI in February.
Here is what he tweeted,
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?
On which Virat Kohli has expressed his views on Shahid Afridi’s statement concerning Kashmir, saying that he will oppose anything that is against the benefit of his nation. However, he clarified that it is inappropriate to raise voice on such sensitive issues without knowing the entire state of affairs.
As an Indian you want to express what is best for your nation & my interests are always for the benefit of our nation. If anything opposes it, I would never support it for sure: Virat Kohli on #ShahidAfridi
But having said that, it’s a very personal choice for someone to comment about certain issues. Unless I have total knowledge of the issues & the intricacies of it I don’t engage in it but definitely your priority stays with your nation: Virat Kohli on #ShahidAfridi
“But having said that, it’s a very personal choice for someone to comment about certain issues. Unless I have total knowledge of the issues & the intricacies of it I don’t engage in it but definitely your priority stays with your nation,” he further added.
Everyone has a right to say whatever they want whether it’s against you or hits you hard, Truth is truth!
