It merits a mention here that former cricketer Shahid Afridi had earlier said that injustice and oppression can never be tolerated and hoped for Kashmir’s resolve as soon as possible. He appreciated Prime Minister Imran Khan’s untiring efforts for peace in Kashmir.
“We expect more from @UN to stop violence & cruelty in the conflict zone of Kashmir, majority of the Indians DO NOT support the barbaric acts of @narendramodi it’s time he should come towards building long term peace, this inhumanity should be put to a stop4good,” Afridi had tweeted.
