20 September 2018
Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi on Tuesday admitted that both India and Pakistan should allow Kashmiris to decide their fate.
Meanwhile, recently Afridi took part in a conversation along with Gautam Gambhir, who were discussing the prospects of the match and possibilities of India and Pakistan bilateral matches.
Shahid Afridi speaking on that lines, revealed that as celebrities they should spread love and peace.
“I believe that as celebrities we should carry the message of love and peace,” Afridi said.
However, Gautam Gambhir responded to it saying that soldiers shouldn’t die on any sides of the border. Moreover, he
“Absolutely, 100 percent… I believe in the fact that jawans (soldiers) die on this side and they die on the other side (Pakistan) as well… Mothers lose their sons there and here,” Gambhir said. “I think that is what matters… Because I have earlier also said this that the lives of the people (on both sides) are more important,” he adds.
While Shahid Afridi hailed Gambhir for his comments, he made an intervention and said that let Kashmiris decide what they want.
“I often say that Kashmir should neither be given to India nor to Pakistan… Kashmiris should decide what they want,” he continues.
