XtraTime Web Desk: Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has slammed former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi’s recent comment on Kashmir issue. Talking to reporters in Bangalore, Kohli said, “As an Indian you want to express what is best for your nation and my interests are always for the benefit of our nation. If anything opposes it, I would never support it for sure.”

He further added, “But having said that, it’s a very personal choice for someone to comment about certain issues. Unless I have total knowledge of the issues and the intricacies of it I don’t engage in it but definitely, your priority stays with your nation.”

Afridi has been strongly criticised for his recent controversial remark on twitter. The leg spinner tweeted:


Suresh Raina too joined Kohli in slamming Afridi over his comments. Raina tweeted, "Kashmir is an integral part of India and will remain so always.Kashmir is the pious land where my forefathers were born. I hope @SAfridiOfficial bhai asks Pakistan Army to stop terrorism and proxy war in our Kashmir. We want peace, not bloodshed and violence."


Former World Cup winning skipper Kapil Dev also supported Kohli and said: “Who is he? Why are we giving importance to him? We should not be giving importance to certain people.”
