Former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi has stood by his country and dismissed any role of Pakistan in the Pulwama terror attack, suggesting Imran Khan's statements on this matter has made everything clear.

Despite Jaish-e-Mohammad - a Pakistan-based terror outfit - claiming responsibility for the attack which killed 40 CRPF jawans, Pakistan has rejected to acknowledge and act against them.

There is global pressure on Pakistan with a number of countries accusing it to be a hub of terrorists following the recent events. But Afridi feels his country is unfairly being targeted for the Pulwama terror attack.

"Without any proof they are putting all the blame onto Pakistan straight away. PM Imran Khan has once again spoken on this matter in a positive & clear way to explain that Pakistan wants to have good relations with not only India, but also Afghanistan, Iran & China," he was quoted as saying by a Pakistani journalist.

A couple of days ago, soon after Imran Khan issued his first statement regarding Pulwama attack - in which he vehemently denied Pakistan's role - Afridi had shared the video on Twitter and gave his vote of confidence to the remarks of his country's PM.

Imran Khan had on Tuesday accused India of falsely naming Pakistan for having a role behind the Pulwama terror attack, and suggested that his country will retaliate should it be attacked upon.

"Indian government blamed Pakistan without evidence. What will Pakistan benefit from it, when Pakistan is at this stage. We are moving towards the process of development. We are coming above the 15 years-reign of fear where 70000 Pakistanis have been killed. Terrorism is going down, peace is coming, stability is coming....If you (Indian govt) think you can attack us and we will not think of retaliating, we will retaliate," he said in his six-minute video.
