Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi, who was criticised by Indian players after his remarks on Kashmir has hit back strongly saying he doesn’t care what other people think and that no one can stop him from speaking the truth.
“I’m not worried about the response to my tweet from some. I believe I spoke the truth and I have the right to speak the truth,” Afridi was quoted as saying by Pakpassion.net.
Afridi said that he won’t be returning to the Indian Premier League even if Pakistan players get the approval to play in the cash-rich tournament.

“Even if they call me, I won’t go to the IPL. My PSL (Pakistan Super League) is the biggest and there will be a time that it leaves the IPL behind. I am enjoying the PSL, I don’t have any need for the IPL. I’m not interested in it and never was,” the former all-rounder added.
“I am a soldier of my country. My country is my honour and Pakistan is everything for me. If I had not been a cricketer, I would have joined the army,” he said.
