Afridi Blasts India, China Over Citizenship Bill, Uighur Persecution In Xinjiang

Published

on

Former Pakistan cricket team captain Shahid Afridi denounced Indian PM Narendra Modi over citizenship amendment bill and urged him to “undo” the contentious, repressive law. 

Kashmir Under Army Clampdown, Net Blockade Has Become The World’s Saddest Place

Shahid Afridi took to his official Twitter handle saying “Modi is fast losing time. His Hindutva based ideology is being resisted not only in IOJ&K but all across India too. He must undo his actions in IOJ&K and CAB against minorities. Otherwise, he is fast reaching his destiny.”

Afridi’s comments have come in the wake of nationwide protests in India against the citizenship law which grants citizenship to the non-Muslims Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhist, Jains and Parsis — from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh who arrived in India before December 31, 2014.

In other words, the CAB paves way for Indian citizenship to lakhs of immigrants, who identify themselves with any of the given religions, even if they lack proper documentation to prove their residency. It clearly means that any immigrant who is a Muslims will not be eligible for Indian citizenship under the amended bill.

Earlier, Afridi had managed to do what millions of people from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan never dared to i.e. support the plight of Uighur Muslims who have been detained by the Chinese authorities in millions.

However, Afridi was forced to delete the tweet in which the superstar cricketer urged the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to speak up against China’s persecution of Uighur Muslims.

“Hearing of atrocities dedicated up against the #UighurMuslims is heartbreaking. We request @ImranKhanPTI to speak up against this; talk of uniting the Muslim ummah includes our brothers & sisters in China also,” he had written in a Twitter post on Sunday.

Up to 1 million people, or about 7% of the Muslim population in Xinjiang, have been incarcerated in an expanding network of camps, according to U.S. officials and UN experts. In a report last September on Uighurs, Human Rights Watch accused the Chinese government of carrying out a “systematic campaign of human rights violations” against the minority community.
