“First Kashmir issue will have to be resolved. You people are struggling hard for freedom. Once Kashmir gets freedom, I will love to come there,” Rising Kashmir, a local newspaper, quoted him as saying.

Afridi, admired by Kashmir youth for his flamboyant batting style since he hit the cricketing field in 1996, has asked the youth “to continue their education in every circumstance” and study at home if the education institutions continue to remain shut.
