Previously, we have seen that Pakistan’s all-time favourite, Shahid Afridi talked on the situation of the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) and ongoing atrocities over there to which Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina also responded.

Afridi also questioned the United Nations (UN) and the other international bodies about their efforts to stop brutality in IOK.

Afridi tweeted, “Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.

Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self-determination and independence.

Wonder where is the UN and other international bodies and why aren’t they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?”

From right there, a debate between Pakistanis and Indians started and from Gautam Gambhir to Indian Media, many from across the border responded to Shahid’s statement on IOK.

Also, Indian media for talking against Afridi got an accurate series of replies by Pakistan’s DG ISPR, Asif Ghafoor, from his personal Twitter account.

Afridi then further tweeted a picture of himself with the Indian fans with a very rational message.

But things didn’t stop there as Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina also responded to Shahid Afridi’s remarks on the situation in IOK.

According to the ANI, Virat Kohli while talking about the whole thing said, “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.”

While Suresh Raina responded to Afridi’s statement by tweeting, “Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always. Kashmir is the pious land where my forefathers were born.

I hope Shahid Afridi bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence.”

However, these kind of things are not new in the history of Pakistan and India. But the question is will these arguments really help Kashmiris?

Actually raising your voice against brutality is important and similarly, responding to others is a right too but practical steps should be taken by the responsible authorities to solve the Kashmir issue in order to stop more atrocities against the human lives.
