Shahid Afridi Roasted Online For Kashmir Tweet, Gautam Gambhir Hits Back

Shahid Afridi was clobbered in tweets not just within the cricket fraternity but also by others.


New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Pak cricketer Shahid Afridi tweeted on Kashmir
  2. He was reminded of Balochistan issue by Twitter users
  3. He tweeted on a day when US acted against Hafiz Saeed's outfit
Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi has been lacerated on social media over a tweet on Kashmir, where he alleges there is an "appalling and worrisome situation" and urges UN intervention. This, on a day the US has taken action against a Pakistani outfit controlled by 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed, who roams freely in Pakistan.

Shahid Afridi was clobbered in tweets not just within the cricket fraternity but also by others. The definitive last word came from a fellow cricketer, Gautam Gambhir. 
The former Pakistan captain was reminded by Twitter users of restive Balochistan and allegations of Pak atrocities in the province.
  
Others told him off in no uncertain terms about his use of the term "Indian Occupied Kashmir". One of these tweets was from Virat Kohli - not the Indian captain but a fake handle.
 
But later in the evening, Shahid Afridi tweeted again, talking about human rights of the people of Kashmir.
 
On Monday, the US designated the MML or Milli Muslim League, the political front of terror mastermind Hafiz Saeed's Jamaat-ud Dawa, as a foreign terrorist organisation. The MML is also an alias of the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

India said the decision reflects the rejection of attempts in Pakistan to mainstream terrorist and terror organisations. New Delhi also said the US decision reflects Pakistan's failure to dismantle terror sanctuaries on its soil and vindicates India's position that Islamabad has not taken effective action against terror.
