Afridi wrote, "Relationship with all. When 2 neighbours fight both homes are effected."

The 36-year-old also wrote that Pakistan is a peace loving nation and there is no need to take extreme measures in resolving the issues between the two countries as things can be sorted out verbally.

Afridi has often found himself in controversies for statements regarding India. Earlier, he was dragged to court after commenting that the Pakistan national cricket team was "loved more in India" than at home.

This is what the Pakistani cricketer had said, "I've not enjoyed playing anywhere as much as I have in India. I am in the last stage of my career and I can say that the love I have got in India is something that I will always remember. We have not got this much love even from Pakistan. There are cricket-loving people here, much like in Pakistan. Overall, I've enjoyed a lot playing in India in my cricketing career".
