Why does Pakistan want Kashmir? They can't manage four provinces: Shahid Afridi

Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan captain, has once again triggered a controversy over Kashmir.

Former Pakistani global cricketer Shahid Afridi Wednesday said that his country doesn't want Kashmir, further adding that it can not even manage its four provinces.

Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi on Wednesday urged both India and Pakistan to leave Kashmir and the Kashmiris decide their own future.

About the draconian laws prevailing in India-held Kashmir, such as the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and Public Safety Act (PSA) that give total impunity to India's occupation machinery, President Khan told the delegation that an Indian soldier was at liberty to shoot and kill any person and nobody could hold him accountable for his act. Let Kashmir be an independent state. "It pains to see people die there", he added further. "I'm passionate about my country and greatly value the struggles of Kashmiris", Afridi tweeted. "Pakistan can't handle even its four provinces". What is the big thing is humanity. People who are dying there, it is painful. "Humanity must prevail and they should get their rights", Afridi said in a tweet.

Earlier in April this year, Afridi had slammed India for its policy in Kashmir.
