New Delhi: Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi was trolled massively by Indians for raking up the 'Kashmir issue' on Monday. The player took to Twitter and posted, "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self -determination and independence. Wonder where are the UN and other international bodies and why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?"

Slamming him, while some Twitterati reminded Afridi that Kashmir was an integral part of India, others reminded him of the situation in Balochistan.

Earlier also, Afridi had raised the 'issue of Kashmir' during the World Twenty20 match against Australia in Mohali in March 2016. He had thanked 'fans from Kashmir' for supporting Pakistan.

“I want to thank people who came and supported us from Pakistan and Kashmir," he had said in the post-match presentation in Kolkata after losing to Australia that had knocked his team out from the tournament.

The then BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur had called the Pakistani cricketer's remark “not politically correct”. "A player should stay away from all this," he had said.

Afridi retired from international cricket in 2017 and played 27 Tests, 398 ODIs and 98 T20Is for Pakistan. He led his country in the ICC World Cup 2011
