Following Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Akhtar, former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad has made a provocative assertion against India over the abrogation of the Article 370, which gave Jammu and Kashmir a special status. Paksitan cricketers Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar and Sarfraz Ahmed had previously slammed India for scrapping the provision.
But Javed Maindad went on to intimidate India with atom bomb, stating Pakistan would clean India with the nuclear weapon.
Talking to a TV news channel, video of which is going viral on social media, Javed Miandad said: “If you (Pakistan) have a licensed weapon, then you should attack. There is a rule across the world that you can kill people in your defence. They (India) will feel the pain when their bodies would go to their homes.”
On being asked about what message did he want to give the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Javed Miandad said: “I have already said that India is a sneaky country. We have not kept atomic bombs like this, we will bomb India with them…we will clean India with a nuclear bomb.”
Not long ago, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed stated that his entire nation was with their “Kashmiri Brothers”, After offering Eid prayers in Karachi, Sarfaraz Ahmed told the news channel: “I pray to the Almighty Allah to help and rescue our Kashmiri brothers sail over these tough times.
“We all equally share their pain and misery. Entire Pakistan today stands with them.”
Previously, former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi had also hit out at the UN for its stillness on the matter and sought the meddling of the world body.
“Kashmiris must be given their due rights as per #UN resolution. The rights of Freedom like all of us. Why was @UN created & why is it sleeping?
Shoaib Akhtar also went on to speak against scrapping of Article 370 and bifurcation of the state into two Union Territories.
Shoaib Akhtar voiced the Pakistan government’s claim that the Kashmir region was being oppressed by the government of India.
"We stand by your side .. EID Mubarak," he said on social media. The accompanying image read: "You define sacrifice. We pray for your freedom and what a great purpose to live for. #Kashmir".
