Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi condemned the decision of Indian court and tweeted in support of Yasin Malik.

“India’s continued attempts to silence critical voices against its blatant human right abuses are futile. Fabricated charges against #YasinMalik will not put a hold to #Kashmir’s struggle to freedom. Urging the #UN to take notice of unfair & illegal trails against Kashmir leaders,” wrote Afridi on Twitter.

In a mocking reply to Afridi, Indian cricketer Amit Mishra said, “Dear  @safridiofficial he himself has pleaded guilty in court on record. Not everything is misleading like your birthdate.”

On May 10, Malik had told the court that he was not contesting the charges levelled against him that including Section 16 (terrorist act), 17 (raising funds for the terrorist act), 18 (conspiracy to commit terrorist act) and 20 (being a member of terrorist gang or organisation) of the UAPA and sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) and 124-A (sedition) of the Indian Penal Code. 

He was sentenced to life imprisonment twice (one for waging war against the nation and one in UAPA sec 17 raising fund for terror act). NIA had sought the death penalty for the separatist leader who was convicted on May 19. The NIA court while sentencing life imprisonment to Malik also imposed a fine of Rs 10 lakh.
