Shahis Afridi landed himself in hot water a couple of days ago, when he sent out a tweet condemning the actions taking place in India occupied Kashmir.
The legendary Pakistan player was worried about the situation over there and asked the United Nations to step in and help the people. This prompted angry reactions from several Indians, as they told Afridi to mind his own business and stop talking about India.
Former Indian player, Gautam Gambhir was one of the first to react, as he sent a stinging reply to Afridi and insulted the intelligence of the Pakistan player.
“Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What’s there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means “UNDER NINTEEN” his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!” Gambhir’s tweet read.
Virat Kohli also got involved, as he felt that Afridi should not have gotten involved in this matter in the first place.
“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. 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.” Kohli said.
Now Sachin Tendulkar has also given his say, as he too feels that Afridi should not have spoken about such an issue.
“We have got capable people to manage & run our country. No outsider needs to know or tell us what we need to do,” he said when asked about Afridi’s controversial statement.
