Asif Ghafoor’s tit-for-tat response to Indian media on Afridi’s Kashmir tweet

Asif Ghafoor’s tit-for-tat response to Indian media on Afridi’s Kashmir tweet

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi in a statement on Tuesday condemned recent clampdown by Indian forces on civilians in occupied Kashmir, urging the United Nations to intervene to stop the bloodshed.

This statement didn’t go down well with Indian media which went into a frenzy and started criticising the flamboyant all-rounder for raising voice for the people of Occupied Kashmir.

Indian cricketer Gautham Ghambir  criticized the former Pakistani captain on Twitter saying Afridi is “celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!”

It was not long before Afridi’s fans rallied behind him and launched a tit-for-tat response against the Indian batsman.

One of the prominent among them was Asif Ghafoor, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), who used his personal Twitter account to respond to criticism against Afridi.

Ghafoor shared a video of a past match in which Afridi led Pakistan to victory against India by hitting two consecutive sixes and a picture in which Afridi is seen engaged in on-field altercation with Gotham Ghambir.

“Shahid Afridi is our national pride and voice,” Asif Ghafoor said in one of his tweets.

Shahid Afridi, who retweeted Asif Ghafoor’s twitter post, also shared his picture with Indian fans holding and wrote: “We respect all. And this is an example of a sportsman. But when it comes to human rights we expect the same for our innocent Kashmiris.”
