Former Pakistan cricketers Shahid Afridi and Danish Kaneria got involved in a massive social media brawl when the leg spinner made some shocking claims about the veteran all-rounder. Kaneria had claimed that Afridi tried to force him to convert to Islam. He also said that Afridi provoked other players against him, adding that he did not want him in the team. In response to Danish Kaneria's statements, Shahid Afridi referred to India as the "Enemy Country". Afridi said Kaneria is giving interviews to Pakistan's enemy which can cause religious conflicts.
"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 said, as quoted by the Sports Tiger. Afridi calling India as Pakistan's enemy didn't sit down well with Kaneria. The leg spinner said that Afridi should not go it Indian media channels if he considers India as his enemy.
"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," he wrote.

Danish Kaneria had earlier accused Shahid Afridi for conspiring against him. He even alleged that Afridi was jealous of him. "He didn’t want me to be in the team. He was a liar, and manipulator because he’s a characterless person. However, my focus was only on cricket and I used to ignore all these tactics. Shahid Afridi was the only person who would go to other players and provoke them against me. I was performing well and he was jealous of me. I am proud that I played for Pakistan. I was grateful," he said.
"He is accusing me to get cheap fame and make money," responded Afridi to the allegations.
