Afridi invites wrath of Indian cricketers for Kashmir comment

NEW DELHI: Hitting back at Shahid Afridi for his controversial comments on Kashmir, India cricketer Suresh Raina and renowned lyricist Javed Akhtar today asked the former Pakistan batsman to advise the Pakistan Army that it stops supporting extremists for maintaining peace in the Valley.
In a surprise comment, Afridi yesterday expressed concerns about “worrisome” situation in Kashmir and was mocked by Gautam Gambhir.
Today Raina, who has roots in Kashmir, took to twitter to offer advise to Afridi.
“Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always. Kashmir is the pious land where my forefathers were born. I hope @SAfridiOfficial bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence,” Raina wrote on the social networking site.
Javed Akhtar also expressed the same sentiments. “Dear Mr Afridi , since you want to see a peaceful JK sans any human rights violations could you please see to it that pak terrorists stop infiltrations n pak army stops supporting the separatists by closing down the training camps. It will greatly help in solving the problem,” wrote the veteran artist. (AGENCIES)
