This isn't the first time that Shahid Afridi has waded into India-Pakistan matters. Little over a year back, he had tweeted insulting India.

Sitting alongside Trump in the Oval Office, the Pakistan PM Imran Khan raised the Kashmir issue with the US President, to which Trump in a fallacious claim stated that he was already asked by PM Modi to do the same, further expressing his willingness to be a mediator between the two countries.
