Why does Pakistan want Kashmir? They can't manage four provinces: Shahid Afridi

Pakistan's former cricketer Shahid Afridi has proposed that Pakistan-occupied Kashmir should be given "independence", saying the country does not want the region as it can not even manage its four provinces. Speaking to students at the British parliament in London, Afridi said, "Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir..."

Legal adviser with the International Commission of Jurists Reema Omar said: "Aasia Bibi is a free person and according to Pakistani law, her freedom of movement can not be restricted".

"Don't give Kashmir to Pakistan or India either". Let Kashmir be independent. At least, humanity will survive. "Kashmir belongs to Pakistan", he wrote in a separate tweet. Humanity is big thing. The people who are getting killed there [Indian-held Kashmir] wouldn't be killed anymore.

Union Home Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh Thursday said, "Afridi said it all right".

The former cricketer had also said that people were dying in Kashmir and it was painful to see that happen.

The comments didn't go down well with India and Afridi was severely criticised by eminent personalities as well as ordinary Indians. He said that his comments were being "misconstrued" by the Indian media. "Kashmir belongs to Pakistan (sic)", he tweeted.

What do you folks think about Shahid Afridi's comments on the Kashmir dispute and his proposed resolution? This was not Afridi's first comment about Kashmir, In April this year, the former cricketer had urged the United Nations and other global organisations to put a halt to the chaotic situation in Kashmir.
