In a viral video posted on social media, Afridi, while addressing students at British parliament, said: "I say Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir. Don't give it to India either. Let Kashmir be independent. At least humanity will be alive. Let people not die... Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir... It can't even manage its four provinces... The big thing is humanity. People who are dying there (Kashmir). It is painful. Any death, be it from any community, is painful."
In a tweet on Wednesday, Afridi said: "My comments are being misconstrued by Indian media! I'm passionate about my country and greatly value the struggles of Kashmiris. Humanity must prevail and they should get their rights."
