Kaneria's response came after Shahid Afridi called 'India' an enemy of Pakistan.

Former Pakistan cricketers Shahid Afridi and Danish Kaneria are at the loggerheads over the last few days. Kaneria had alleged that Afridi had mistreated him for being a Hindu during his playing days and also pressurized him to convert to Islam. However, the former Pakistan skipper refuted Kaneria’s allegations while also questioning his character.

Moreover, Afridi brought up the leg-spinner’s spot-fixing case stating that he defamed Pakistan with his actions. Afridi also went to say that Kaneria is making such statements for fame and money. Rather, he also stated India as an enemy country as Kaneria had given his statement to an Indian media house.

“He is accusing me to get cheap fame and make money. Kaneria was like my younger brother and I played with him in the department for many years. Everyone knows about his character. If my attitude was bad then why he did not complain to the Pakistan Cricket Board or the department he was playing for. He is giving interviews to our enemy country which can incite religious sentiments,” Afridi had said in response to Kaneria’s allegations.

Danish Kaneria, after coming across Afridi’s response, took to Twitter on Monday (May 9). He said that India is not Pakistan’s enemy while also stating that country’s enemy are such people who instigate people in the name of religion. He also asked Afridi to never give an interview to the Indian media if he thinks the country as his enemy. Kaneria added further allegations saying that he was threatened that his career will end when he didn’t agree to convert to Islam.

“India is not our enemy. Our enemies are those who instigate people in the name of religion. If you consider India as your enemy, then don't ever go to any Indian media channel. When I raised my voice against forced conversion, I was threatened that my career would be destroyed,” Kaneria wrote in his tweet.

Meanwhile, it remains to be seen now if Shahid Afridi comes up with yet another response to Kaneria’s latest allegations or the war of words between two former Pakistan cricketers will end here.
