It’s not new for Shahid Afridi to crash himself straight into controversies time and again. The former Pakistani international cricketer has now made a controversial statement on Kashmir, and this time, as a suggestion to Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Speaking at a press conference in London, UK, Afridi said Pakistan should not be demanding Kashmir as it was not able to handle even the four province it had.
“Pakistan doesn’t need Kashmir; it is not able to even handle the four provinces it has,” Afridi can be heard in a video of the press interaction.
He even admitted that Pakistan has failed in its efforts to keep the country united and safe from extremists. He even said it pains him to see people dying in Kashmir.
“Say Pakistan doesn’t need Kashmir, don’t give it to India as well, let Kashmir become a country. The people dying there should not die, humanity should stay alive. It pains to see people die there,” he told the press.
