When two neighbours fight, both homes are affected: Shahid Afridi urges India, Pakistan for peace

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has asked both India and Pakistan to maintain peace and say no to war as tensions between the two countries continue to rise after the recent surgical strikes by the Indian Army along the LoC. Afridi opined his views on Twitter and said that Pakistan is a peace loving country and “wants cordial relations with everyone.” He also added that there is no need to take extreme measures when things can be resolved using dialogues.

The Indian Army conducted surgical strikes on Thursday night along the Line of Control in Pakistan and targeted seven terror launch pads across border using heliborne and ground forces. Addressing a press conference, DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said India inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them. Several Indian leaders, across party lines have since hailed the Army for successfully executing surgical strikes and backed the Modi government’s decision as a befitting retaliation to Pakistan.
The surgical strikes are in response to the Uri attack. On September 18, four men executed what was one of the worst terrorist attacks on the Indian Army and killed 19 army jawans in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri in the rear office of an Indian Army infantry installation. The attackers are believed to have come from Pakistan. Since then, India has upped its diplomatic offensive against Pakistan in a bid to isolate the country internationally.

Afridi has been out of the Pakistan T20 team for sometime now. He has put forward a demand to PCB to give him a farewell match but the board has no plans to do so.
