Recently the Kashmir issue and the tension it has created between India and Pakistan is all over social media.

While every Tom, Dick and Harry has an opinion to offer on the political matter, a huge number of people also urged influential personalities to speak up on and support the cause.

The same kind of hateful persuasion was directed towards one of Pakistan’s most popular YouTubers, Irfan Junejo, and so began the Cancel Culture.

Thousands of people were of the opinion that Irfan hadn’t spoken up because he was afraid of losing Indian followers, while others thought that he just didn’t want to get into something that did not benefit him financially.

Many also opined that Junejo had been silent out of sheer ignorance, and hence many unsubscribed his channel for the same.

After a lot of bullying and pestering over the past week, the YouTuber finally decided to make a vlog about why he had not been speaking up on the matter in a video.

Some social media users remarked about how #IrfanJunejo had been trending on Twitter instead of #Kashmir, which only shows what is of more importance to Pakistanis, the actual issue or the matter of some people not talking about it.

Moreover, many people also highlighted that out of all the people in Pakistan who have been silent on the issue, Pakistanis have chosen to criticize Irfan for staying shut.

Here is Irfan’s video:

In the video, Irfan clearly elaborated on the following points:

  • He had made the mistake of making videos on religious and political matters and regretted it to the extent that he vowed not to do the same again.
  • He prefers speaking out openly on social issues instead.
  • If he had made a YouTube video on Kashmir, it would easily earn him 300-400 USD, and he did not want to ‘commodify’ on the issue.
  • He has been severely bullied for not speaking up on the Kashmir issue, and he is not going to let anyone bully him into speaking up on something he does not personally want to.
  • Just because he did not make a vlog about something, does not mean he does not care about the issue.
  • He deeply cares about the Kashmir issue and after being certain of his stance on it, he has been Retweeting and reposting the content he agrees with.

While there have been too many people abusing and bullying him, he has also received support from fans and followers.
