Former Pakistani cricket captain Shahid Khan Afridi on Thursday took to his Twitter account and praised the people of Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IOJK) for their bravery ahead of February 5 which is celebrated as the Kashmir Solidarity Day in Pakistan.

“We must take inspiration from the valour and perseverance observed by the people of Kashmir who were subjected to brutality in the fight for their homeland,” the former skipper wrote.

“I stand united with our brothers and sisters in support of their journey to freedom on #KashmirSolidarityDay.”

The cricketer actively supports the cause of Kashmir and has previously tweeted about India’s atrocities in the region.

Back in August 2019, when Prime Minister Imran Khan called on all Pakistanis to take part in ‘Kashmir Hour’ to show solidarity with the people of Kashmir, Afridi enthusiastically supported the idea.

“Let’s respond to PM’s call for Kashmir Hour as a nation. I will be at Mazar e Quaid at 12 pm on Friday. Join me to express solidarity with our Kashmiri brethren. On 6 Sep, I will visit home of a Shaheed. I will soon be visiting LOC,” he had written.
