Afridi had earlier called for UN intervention as well as that of the US after the Indian government abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution that accorded special status to occupied Kashmir. Former Pakistan skipper Javed Miandad had also said that he will visit the LoC with other sportspersons from the nation who were willing to join him. The former cricketer said that they will host a flag for peace at the LoC.
I will go to the border for peace. I will call all the top people, the sportspeople and everyone. I will go there and tell everyone about peace. I will go with a peace flag. If these things did not stop then I will go to the border with anyone who will join me and after going there I will tell people that we want peace and we are with Kashmiri people, Miandad said in a video posted on his Twitter handle.
