New Delhi, Nov 15 (IBNS): Reacting to former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi's comment where he said his country doesn't want Kashmir, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said the sportsman's version was right.

In a major embarrassment for Pakistan, Afridi has recently said as quoted by NDTV, "I say Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir. Don't give it to India either. Let Kashmir be independent. At least humanity will be alive.

"Let people not die... Pakistan doesn't want Kashmir... It can't even manage its four provinces...What is the big thing is insaaniyat(humanity). People who are dying there, it is painful. Any death, be it from any community, is painful"

In a reaction to Afridi's comment, Singh said as quoted by NDTV,  said: "What  he said is right. They are not able to manage Pakistan. How can they manage Kashmir? Kashmir is and will be a part of India."

However, Afridi said his comment has been "misconstrued". The former Pakistani all-rounder tweeted saying, "My comments are being misconstrued by Indian media! I'm passionate about my country and greatly value the struggles of Kashmiris. Humanity must prevail and they should get their rights."

In April, Afridi had expressed concern over situation in Kashmir and urged the United Nations (UN) to intervene.
