  • Suresh Raina has given it back to Shahid Afridi for insulting India
  • Raina has unequivocally said that Kashmir is a part of India
  • He's asked Afridi to ask the Pak Army to stop its terrorism and proxy war

 Indian World Cup-winning Cricketer Suresh Raina has given it back to former Pak captain Shahid Afridi for his tweet insulting India and backing terrorists

"Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always. Kashmir is the pious land where my forefathers were born. I hope @SAfridiOfficial bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence."

Earlier, Afridi had tweeted against India:

The Pakistan Army had formally thrown in its lot with Shahid Afridi following the former Pakistan cricket captain's unsolicited, uninformed and factually compromised tweet

The Pakistan Army's spokesperson, DG-ISPR (Director General-Inter Services PR) Asif Ghafoor had tweeted childishly over the issue, attaching a video and a picture of Afridi playing against India, captioning with cheerleader-like statements. 

Afridi's tweet, which mirrored several others by Pak dispensation and Pak proxies in the Valley, attempted to distort the unprecedented terror crackdown by India in Kashmir, where 13 terrorists were killed in three operations over the weekend.

Two of the 'innocents' Afridi referred to were involved in the cowardly killing of Lt Ummer Fayaz in May. Assault rifles had been recovered from the encounter sites, and the crackdown is said to have dealt a massive blow to Lashkar-e-Toiba and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen's operations in the Valley.

Republic TV had confronted Afridi, whose duplicity stood exposed when he refused to say a word against 26/11 plotter Hafiz Saeed.

Afridi was soundly panned for his views with Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir tearing him to shreds.

Lyricist and Parliamentarian Javed Akhtar also pointed out obvious holes in Afridi's reasoning.
