Gautam Gambhir and Shahid Afridi have been at war with each since their days on-field. Recently, they there was an altercation between the two veteran players on a political issue.
Gautam Gambhir chose the path of a politician after retiring from international cricket. That being said, he does not take it lightly if anyone mocks the current government of India. Afridi did exactly that which ticked off Gambhir to another level.
Shahid Afridi passes negative comments about Indian current Prime Minister
Shahid Afridi recently visited Kashmir and passed a comment about the current Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. Not only did he say that the real disease was in the Prime Minister’s mind but also that the 7 lakh soldiers deployed at Kashmir is the same as that of Pakistan’s strength. In fact, the 20 crore citizens of Pakistan are backing their Army.
“I am in your beautiful village, I am very delighted. I was planning to visit you all from a long time. The world is currently infected by such a big disease. But the bigger disease is in Modi’s mind.”
Gautam Gambhir does not hold back and replies harshly
Gautam Gambhir hit back at Shahid Afridi with a fitting reply. The veteran Indian team player did not refrain from referring to Afridi as a 16 year old. Moreover, he took the time to remind Afridi about the East Pakistan (current Bangladesh). Finally, he adds that Pakistan will never take ownership of Kashmir until judgement day.
“Pak has 7 lakh force backed by 20 Cr ppl says 16 yr old man @SAfridiOfficial. Yet begging for Kashmir for 70 yrs. Jokers like Afridi, Imran & Bajwa can spew venom against India & PM @narendramodi ji to fool Pak ppl but won’t get Kashmir till judgment day! Remember Bangladesh?”

Shahid Afridi has often been vocal about his negative comments about India regarding the issue of Kashmir. For those who don’t know, Shahid Afridi’s family had terrorist connections in Kashmir. In 2003, his cousin was killed during an encounter at Anantnag by BSF.
