New Delhi: At a time when the whole world is putting up a united fight against Coronavirus, Pakistan continues to remain obsessed with India. At a time, when Imran govt’s focus should be on saving its population from the Covid-19 pandemic, it continues to indulge in fake propaganda campaign against India.

Shahid Afridi - Modi

In latest incident, former Pak cricketer Shahid Afridi has indulged in hatemongering from across the border. He traveled to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) and made outrageous remarks against Indian Army and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Afridi apparently went to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) for supplying relief material in times of Covid-19 but ended up as a puppet of the Pakistani Army.

Addressing a local crowd, Afridi said, “Modi deployed 7 lakh soldiers in Kashmir, same as the total strength of Pakistani forces.”

Spreading the fake narrative further, Afridi said Kashmiris are being oppressed by Indian Army.

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!

He has been involved in a number of Twitter wars over the Kashmir issue with former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir.

Last year, he had visited the Line of Control (LoC) to “express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren” following the Indian government’s decision to abrogate Article 370 of the Indian constitution.
