Srinagar: Hitting out at a section of national media for celebrating Shahid Afridi’s statement, National Conference (NC) Vice President Omar Abdullah said the former Pakistan cricket was clearly supporting freedom for Kashmir and criticizing human rights violation in the valley.
“I don’t get what sections of the Indian media are celebrating WRT #ShahidAfridi’s statement. Forget what he said about Pakistan’s 4 provinces, the byte I saw clearly had him supporting freedom for Kashmir & criticising human rights violations so how is that a victory for India?” Mr Abdullah, who is former chief minister of the state, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.
Abdullah was reacting to a section of media ‘celebrating’ Afridi’s, ‘Pakistan can’t even manage its four province,’ comment.
But, the 38-year-old cricket goes on the advocate independence for Kashmir.  “I say Pakistan doesn’t want Kashmir. Don’t give it to India either. Let Kashmir be independent. At least humanity will be alive. Let people not die… Pakistan doesn’t want Kashmir… It can’t even manage its four provinces…What is the big thing is insaaniyat (humanity). People who are dying there, it is painful. Any death, be it from any community, is painful,” Afridi was heard saying in a video posted on social media.
