Former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has slammed ex-Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi for his recent comment on Kashmir on Wednesday.

In a tweet, Afridi revealed he will be visiting the Line of Control (LoC) to ‘express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren’ after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced that a 30-minute event will take place every week to show solidarity with the people of Jammu and Kashmir.

“Let’s respond to PM call for Kashmir Hour as a nation. I will be at Mazar e Quaid at 12 pm on Friday. Join me to express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren. On 6 Sep I will visit home of a Shaheed. I will soon be visiting LOC (sic),” Afridi tweeted.

Cricketer-turned-MP Gambhir lashed out at Afridi. “Guys, in this picture Shahid Afridi is asking Shahid Afridi that what should Shahid Afridi do next to embarrass Shahid Afridi so that’s it’s proven beyond all doubts that Shahid Afridi has refused to mature!!! Am ordering online kindergarten tutorials for help,” he tweeted.

Earlier this month, India decided to end special status of Jammu & Kashmir and the state was bifurcated into two union territories – J&K and Ladakh.

When Article 370 was abrogated, Afridi, known for his controversial statement on the disputed Kashmir region, asked the United Nations and US President Donald Trump to take cognizance of the situation.

In response, Gambhir once again slammed Afridi and said that unprovoked aggression and crimes against humanity happening in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) will be sorted.

“@SAfridiOfficial is spot on guys. There is “unprovoked aggression”, there r “crimes against humanity”. He shud be lauded for bringing this up. Only thing is he forgot to mention that all this is happening in “Pakistan Occupied Kashmir”. Don’t worry, will sort it out son!!!” Gambhir wrote.
