Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi have seemed to get involved in the ongoing tensions between India and Pakistan as he has made sensational comments with Pakistan cricketers slowly getting involved into the thick of the things.
Just yesterday Pakistan legendary batsman Javed Miandad has taken a dig on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while Afridi have said, “Pathans are protecting the border ahead of the army,” in an interview to a Pakistani channel.
The 36-year old who has not been part of the Pakistani team for a while now, have recently taaken twitter to spread peace across both the countries in an attempt to calm down the situation. He tweeted, “Pakistan is a peace-loving nation, so why talk about extreme measures when things can be resolved through dialogues?”
“Pakistan wants a cordial relationship with all. When two neighbours fight both homes are affected. Say No to war.” #Pakistan #India #Peace #neighbours,” he added.
However, the host who interviewed Afridi in the channel have told that an Indian news portal have made fun of his tweet and claimed that “Afridi was afraid of Indian army.”
When the host asked to comment on the this reply, Afridi said: “Indians aren’t aware that ahead of the Pakistani army, it is the Pathans who are standing. The borders are all protected by the Pathans.”
The tensions between the two countries have been at a peak in the last few days following the Uri attacks in Kashmir. The Indian government have hit back on Pakistan with surgical strikes with has made relationship soar even further.
Even BCCI have decided to call off matches against Pakistan in ICC tournaments and multi-nation tournaments as president Anurag Thakur has confirmed recently. However, it remains to be seen how International Cricket Council would react to this as they openly admitted that putting the two teams in the same group will help the tournaments.
