Indian cricketers Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan condemned Shahid Afridi’s controversial comments on India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The former Pakistan cricketer was earlier criticised for his statements by Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh.

Taking potshot at the former Pakistani cricketer, Raina ridiculed Afridi and said that he spoke on the issue just to remain relevant. The Indian batsman said mentioned that Afridi should work for the welfare of Pakistan and not bother about Kashmir.

“Gosh! What all a person must do to remain relevant! Even more so for a nation that is living on alms. So, better do something for your failed nation and leave #Kashmir alone. I am a proud Kashmiri and it is and will always remain an inalienable part of India. Jai Hind!” Raina tweeted.

Meanwhile, India opener Dhawan expressed shock over Afridi raising the issue of Kashmir when the world is worried about the spread of the coronavirus.

In a video that appeared on social media, Afridi can be seen criticising the Indian Prime Minister for the situation in Kashmir.

The former Pakistan all-rounder also took to Twitter to comment on the situation in Kashmir.

“It does not take a religious belief to feel the agony of Kashmiris…just a right heart at the right place. Save Kashmir,” Afridi wrote.
