Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has continued to raise his opinion regarding the people of Kashmir. Meanwhile, earlier Afridi was at loggerheads with Gautam Gambhir for questioning the recent trouble in the valley.
The political tension between the two countries has restrained both the teams playing against each other.
Team India visited Pakistan last time in 2005-06 for a full series while they toured India for a short series in 2012-13 where they played three One-day Internationals and two T20Is.
However, they have faced each other in ICC tournaments but have not played bilateral tournaments owing to the cross-border escalation.
Previously, Afridi took to Twitter to question about the human rights. He also urged the United Nations (UN) to intervene and take necessary measure to put an end to this.
However, this didn’t sit well with Gambhir replied back at him. He mocked at Afridi. He admitted that for Afridi UN means ‘Under Nineteen’.
The southpaw also received severe backlash from the Kashmiri people and many accused him of having no ground knowledge.
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!!!

So far, the top-order batsman Gambhir featured in 147 One-day Internationals, 58 Tests and 37 T20Is for India. Whereas, Afridi represented Pakistan in 398 ODIs, 98 T20Is and 27 Tests.
Shahid Afridi continues to raise voice:
The swashbuckling all-rounder continued to raise his opinion despite getting severely trolled.
In his second tweet, he posted a picture from the Ice Cricket game where he posed with an Indian fan with the Indian flag.
The all-rounder wrote that as a sportsman he respects everyone but wants similar respect for the innocent Kashmiris and their human rights.
We respect all. And this is an example as sportsman. But when it comes to human rights we expect the same for our innocent Kashmiris. pic.twitter.com/DT5aF1wX8P

“We respect all. And this is an example as sportsman. But when it comes to human rights we expect the same for our innocent Kashmiris,” Afridi wrote in his second tweet.
Meanwhile, among all these debates and dialogues it is the need of the hour to give a political solution to this problem.
