India and Pakistan have been in an uncomfortably hostile position ever since the Pulwama incident took place. Since then Indians have been going on and on about how they are going to take revenge.
Indian Twitter has been going crazy with some pretty negative comments.
PAKISTAN will no longer be on world MAP

Some very prominent Indians also raised their voice in retaliation to the unfortunate incident that took place in Pulwama. Like Kangana Ranaut.

However, some of the most spiteful comments came from Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian cricketer.
Yes, let’s talk with the separatists. Yes, let’s talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can’t be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough. 18 CRPF personnel killed in IED blast on Srinagar-Jammu highway https://t.co/aa0t0idiHY via @economictimes

He’s been making some rather crude comments on Twitter.
I have some news for Pakistan. We should continue their ‘MFN’ status. Only thing is, that this time we the civilians will decide what ‘F’ stands for. https://t.co/5SsC6BlDvT

Pakistan hasn’t been paying much attention to the all the commotion. Balke, they’ve been “enjoying” the attention and haven’t taken it personally.

We are also ready for battle
But remember one thing it’s going be a really battle..not a Bollywood movie pic.twitter.com/8Y7DeZkHCC

Needless to say, these harrowing exchange of threats and offenses on Twitter has caught the media’s attention. While the Indian media is up in flames, no such comments have surfaced from Pakistan’s end. No cricketer has talked about the incident, or Gambhir’s threats in particular.
So in order to get some insight into the matter, a report tried to get Shahid Afridi’s take on the matter.
Shahid Afridi is currently busy dealing with the Pakistan Super League and has been in Dubai for the tournament. On his way back from the match against Islamabad United, a reporter asked what Afridi had to say about Gautam Gambhir and well..
With no clue as to what was being discussed, Afridi’s response was : “Kya hogaya usko?”
As he made that face.
Seems like Afridi has been oblivious to the threatening statements Gambhir has been making on his Twitter handle.
Afridi on the inside: Is you serious, bruh?
Cause seriously, Afridi had ZERO clue about what was happening. I mean, what else do these expressions say?
Afridi’s response, or should I say lack of response, is garnering a lot of attention.
“Kya hogya usko” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 literally this is the amout of shit Pakistanis give about whats going on India aur waha se sab bhonkay ja rhay hai https://t.co/DiIlePRzZt

It was alleged that Afridi is not one for such statements.
Gautam Ghambir is so irrelevant that even Afridi doesn’t give a f*ck to what he says. 😁😂 https://t.co/wlJ5xiQkW3

Pretty sure Afridi was like: Kuch ho wo toh nahi gaya larkay ko
The funny part is genuine concern appears on Afridi’s face when he hears Gautam Gambhir’s name – he doesn’t seem to be paying attention before that – and then he’s like “same old shit”.

Afridi legit thought Gambhir mar maraa gaya hai. https://t.co/QgrwKmxIwu
— Hassaan. (@HassaanFaridi) February 17, 2019
RIP Gambhir’s ego.
— Ishtiaq Zaffar (@IshtiaqZaffar) February 17, 2019
Also, won’t lie but it seemed like Afridi also just didn’t care altogether.
hhahahahahah epic response by lala “kiya ho gaya oss ko”😮😱😱
— haider (@nmol192) February 17, 2019
*Insert shrug emoji*
HAHAHA the way he shrugged his hand when the reporter was like “jang ki maidaan…”

In case you missed it, this what concern looks like IRL
Waqai banda bechara genuinely pareshan hogaya tha.

The look on afridis face so concerned oh my god 😂😂😂😂😂

On a serious note, Shahid Afridi has been super busy with PSL around the corner and the pressure that follows with the event. He might not have had time to pay attention to the news lately or maybe the thought might have slipped his mind. In all honesty, he was caught off guard, ho sakta hai dimagh main kuch aur ho?
Here’s the video Pakistani Twitter has been talking about.

Dekh ke btana please ke sirf mujhe lag raha hai or does Afridi seriously look worried for Gautam Gambhir?
