The separatist Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq took to Twitter to congratulate Pakistan on their maiden win in the ICC Champions Trophy. He had tweeted, "Fireworks all around, feels like an early Eid here". Better team took the day.
However, Indian cricketer Gautam who definitely was expecting the opposite results in the purview of successive performance lost his temper and retaliated by advising Farooq to cross the border for celebrating the Eid. "Congratulations team" Reactions of people are flooding the social media after this controversial tweet.
Although Green Shirts were getting a mammoth support from their countrymen during the tournament but a landslide majority in Indian occupied Kashmir also threw weight behind Pakistan. Not only did his tweet respond to Farooq's message sharply, but it also took a dig at China's increasing "colonisation" of Pakistan.

After veteran Indian opener Gautam Gambhir suggested Kashmiri separatist leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq to pack his bags and cross the border to go to Pakistan, the Shiv Sena on Monday said that the country would have appreciated more had the Indian Cricket Team opposed playing against them. Rejoicing in Pakistan's semi-final win against hosts England, the Kashmiri separatist had tweeted: "As we were finishing taraweeh, could hear the fire crackers bursting, well played team #Pakistan".
