Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar has given out a strong piece of advice for Shahid Afridi over his comments on Kashmir.

Condemning Afridi, Sachin said, "No outsider needs to know or tell us what we need to do. It is obvious that we have capable people to manage our country, run our country."

This comes as a response to Shahid Afridi's tweet in which he had alleged an "appalling and worrisome situation" in Kashmir and urged UN intervention. 

His tweet read: "Appalling and worrisome situation ongoing in the Indian Occupied Kashmir. Innocents being shot down by oppressive regime to clamp voice of self determination & independence. Wonder where is the @UN & other int bodies & why aren't they making efforts to stop this bloodshed?"

Shahid Afridi has been skewered for his tweet, for the last 24 hours including many from the cricketing fraternity like Gautam Gambhir, Kapil Dev, and Suresh Raina.

Gautam Gambhir tweet, "Media called me for reaction on @SAfridiOfficial tweet on OUR Kashmir & @UN. What's there to say? Afridi is only looking for @UN which in his retarded dictionary means "UNDER NINTEEN" his age bracket. Media can relax, @SAfridiOfficial is celebrating a dismissal off a no- ball!!!"

Suresh 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."

Kapil Dev reacted on the issue by saying, "I have no time for him. Who is he? Why are we giving importance to him? We should not be giving importance to such people. If somebody sitting in one corner of the world says something, I think the best thing is not to react to it."
