Mumbai: Last week, the Government of India took a historic decision to scrap Article 370 of the Constitution that conferred special status to Jammu and Kashmir and barred people from the rest of the country from buying property there. The state of Jammu and Kashmir is now divided into two Union Territories; Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.

This decision sparked celebrations across most parts of the country but the reaction was different in the neighbouring country of Pakistan. Some Pakistani cricketers had also slammed this decision. Shahid Afridi too tweeted against this decision. Sarfaraz Ahmed is the latest Pakistani player to speak on this.

 

He spoke to media on occasion of Eid. He said, “I pray to the Almighty Allah to help and rescue our Kashmiri brothers sail over these tough times. We all equally share their pain and misery. Entire Pakistan today stands with them.”

Shahid Afridi’s tweet had him talking about the Freedom of the Kashmiri’s. He wrote, “Kashmiris must be given their due rights as per #UN resolution. The rights of Freedom like all of us. Why was @UN created & why is it sleeping? The unprovoked aggression & crimes being committed in Kashmir against #Humanity must be noted. The @POTUS (US President) must play his role to mediate.”
