Home Minister Rajnath Singh while reacting on former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi’s comment on Kashmir said, “What he said is right. They are not able to manage Pakistan. How can they manage Kashmir? Kashmir is and will be a part of India.”
Earlier in a video which went viral on social media, Shahid Afridi said that his country is “already struggling to manage four provinces” and that they don’t want Kashmir.
He was addressing to students at the British parliament when he made these statements. Later he took on Twitter to clarify his stand.
LHe tweeted “My comments are being misconstrued by Indian media! I’m passionate about my country and greatly value the struggles of Kashmiris. Humanity must prevail and they should get their rights.”
In another tweet, he said “My clip is incomplete & out of context as what I said before that is missing. Kashmir is unresolved dispute & under brutal Indian occupation. It must be resolved as per UN resolution. Myself along with every Pakistani support Kashmiri freedom struggle. Kashmir belongs to Pakistan.”
