After the abolition of Article 370 that game the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir special status under the Indian constitution, Pakistan is protesting. And the protest in Pakistan is not just from politicians but also from former international cricketers.
Recently, former Pakistan cricketer Javed Miandad stirred controversy by his comments. Miandad said that “Pehle main balle se chakka marta tha, ab talwar se insaan maaronga (If I can hit six with a bat, why can’t I swing sword.. I used to hit sixes with bat, now I’ll kill humans with sword).”’
Not just Miandad, earlier Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi attended an event organised by the authorities where he came in Pakistan military attire. Pakistan prime minister and former cricket captain Imran Khan accused the ruling BJP of racist ideology and threatened India of instigating war. Pakistan also tested their long-range missile few days ago.

India de-operationalised Article 370 on August 5, 2019, after bringing in a presidential order. Since the controversial move, mainstream political leaders in Kashmir are kept under house arrest, internet connections were stopped and section 144 was imposed.
