Gautam Gambhir takes a dig at Pakistan PM Imran Khan for his UN speech

Posted On / /

Former India batsman and current BJP MP Gautam Gambhir on Saturday took a dig at Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan for his UN speech and compared it with that of his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, who stressed on the values of peace and harmony.

“The time allotted to each country is 15 minutes. What one does with it shows character and intellect. @narendramodi Ji chose to talk about peace and development while Pakistan Army’s puppet threatened a nuclear war. He is the same man who claims to promote peace in Kashmir,” Gambhir wrote in his Twitter post.

This is not the first time Gambhir has hit out at Pakistan over the Kashmir issue. Last month, former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi’s tweet on going to the Line of Control to “express solidarity with Kashmiri brethren” was criticized by Gambhir.

Meanwhile, on Friday, Imran speaking at the UNGA had held out threats of a conventional war between the two nuclear-armed neighbors spinning out of control. He also spoke about the radicalization of Muslims in India and around the world.

Imran attacked India in his extempore speech that lasted more than the 15 minutes allotted to him following which India hit back at the Pakistan PM.
