Shahid Afridi makes twit of himself with Twitter rant on Kashmir; Gautam Gambhir shows bad form in response

Responding to the clashes between protesters and security forces in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday, former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi took to Twitter to express anguish over the 'appalling and worrisome' situation.

Afridi, who has also faced backlash from his own countrymen after giving a controversial statement during the 2016 World T20, tweeted, "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir.Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?."

Afridi also asked as to why United Nations had not made any efforts to stop the violence.

Incidentally, Afridi's remarks come hours after UN chief Antonio Guterres voiced his opinion over the ongoing tension in Jammu and Kashmir.

"The Secretary-General is, indeed, very concerned about the situation that we've seen in Jammu and Kashmir. He would like to remind that Member States are responsible under international humanitarian law to protect civilians," said Stephane Dujarric, a spokesman for the UN Secretary-General.

Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir took to Twitter to slam Afridi, but showed some bad form:
