Shahid Afridi Kashmir Day 2021

Pakistan’s former cricket captain Shahid Afridi has penned an emotional note ahead of Kashmir Solidarity Day 2021, set to take place tomorrow (Friday).

Taking to his Twitter handle, Shahid Afridi praised the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK) for their bravery.

“We must take inspiration from the valour and perseverance observed by the people of Kashmir who were subjected to brutality in the fight for their homeland,” the former skipper wrote.

“I stand united with our brothers and sisters in support of their journey to freedom on #KashmirSolidarityDay.”

Earlier in 2019, Afridi had enthusiastically supported the idea when Prime Minister Imran Khan called on all Pakistanis to take part in ‘Kashmir Hour’ to show solidarity.

“Let’s respond to PM’s 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,” he had written.
