Afridi insults India: Rakes up Kashmir issue, calls India 'oppressive'



New Delhi, April 3: Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi is at it again. He raked up 'Kashmir issue' and pitched for 'self-determination and independence' on Tuesday, inviting a wave of criticism.

He took to the Twitter handle and said, "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self -determination and independence. Wonder where are the UN and other international bodies and why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?"

On earlier occasion too he has raised the issue of Kashmir. In Mohali in March 2016, he had thanked fans from Kashmir for supporting Pakistan during the World Twenty20 match against Australia.

“I want to thank people who came and supported us from Pakistan and Kashmir," he had said in the post-match presentation in Kolkata. 

Afridi's tweet on the issue irked many and it kick-started a twitter war of sorts:

There was a sea of response:
