Cricket star Shahid Afridi, on Friday called Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi “ignorant” for his atrocities in Gujrat and occupied Kashmir, and told him that the entire Pakistan stands united on the issue.

“India’s image has been tarnished immensely by you and your followers. India also has a lot of educated people who talk sense. You need to listen to those sensible people,” said Afridi in his speech during ‘Kashmir Hour’ gathering at the Quaid-e-Azam mausoleum in Karachi.

The Kashmir Hour was being observed across Pakistan in solidarity with Kashmiris on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call.

Prime Minister and others tried to explain to you. Pakistan and India’s relations were very good during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s era, Afridi said.

He said, “We used to visit each other and people were happy. But since you’ve come into power, what you did in Gujrat and what you are doing in Kashmir … it is a major sign of ignorance.”

“This time and era is not to fight and bicker. We and our PM have tried our best to improve Pak-India relations but we are not getting any response from you”, former cricketer said.

Afridi said, “The way you are treating women and children there…. Shahid Afridi and the entire Pakistan stands united with the Pakistan Army and the government.”

Two days earlier, Afridi in a tweet said that the whole nation needs to stand in solidarity with Kashmir and on this regard I will visit the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam to show my love for the Kashmiri brethren.

He also said, “I will visit the martyrs on Sept. 6 and will soon pay a visit to Line of Control (LoC).
