"This is the best time to internationalise the Kashmir issue and Pakistan must take a proactive initiative to promote the Kashmir cause with the help of the global community and Pakistani diaspora", he said. "There is no question over Kashmir. Kashmir is not an issue", the 38-year-old cricketer said, while addressing students at the British parliament on Wednesday.

Now the former Pakistani cricketer has gone onto say that his comments have been "misconstrued" by the Indian media. Let Kashmir be an independent state.

"Neither India nor Pakistan should be given control of Kashmir, instead Kashmir should be allowed to evolve as an independent country", he further told the press.

This is not the first time that Afridi's comments about Kashmir stirred a controversy.

In a separate Tweet, the former cricketer said that Kashmir is an unresolved dispute and "under brutal India occupation". Commentators believe the new Indian government will be ready to resume talks and the election statements were just for public consumption. They are not able to manage Pakistan, how could they manage Kashmir. At least insaniyat (humanity) will be alive. "Pakistan can't handle even its four provinces". "Humanity must prevail and they should get their rights", he tweeted. "Any death, be it from any community, is painful", Afridi said in the video uploaded on social media.
