Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi faced the flak for backing Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s take on the Pulwama attacks. Now it seems he has reacted on Imran Khan’s statement again and given his own take on the Pulwama attacks. “Without any proof they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran & China,” Afridi was quoted as saying by a Pakistan journalist.
“You (India) have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence…If you have any evidence, we will act. It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” Pakistan PM Imran Khan had said.
“What has Pakistan to gain from this? Why will Pakistan do this at a stage when it is moving towards stability,” said Imran Khan adding that “this is a Naya Pakistan with a new mindset. “If you think you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating…We will retaliate. We all know starting a war is in the hands of humans, where it will lead us only God knows. This issue should be solved through dialogue,” Khan added.
Now, it seems it has stepped it further by mocking Indians. In the wake of the PSL broadcast being blacked out in India, Afridi has reacted on this issue and said educated people do not behave in such a manner.
“You find out who your friends are at difficult times. What are they trying to show the world that they are educated? Educated people don’t behave in such a manner,” Afridi said.
Earlier, on February 14, at least 40 CRPF jawans were killed after a Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist rammed an explosive-laden vehicle into one of the vans of the military convoy at the Jammu-Srinagar highway. The dastardly terror attack has enraged not only the nation but other countries as well, who condemned the heinous act.
