- Adnan Sami gave a befitting response to a Pakistani troll recently
- The troll dared Sami to express his views on the abrogation of Article 370 by the Government of India
Singer Adnani Sami has been a target of social media trolls ever since he became a citizen of India in January 2016. Earlier a Pakistani passport holder, Sami has often been slammed by the citizens of the neighbouring country.
On India’s Independence Day today, which also happens to be Sami’s birthday, a Pakistani Twitter user dared him to express his views on the “Kashmir issue.” The user, who goes by the name of Syed Zahid Mehfooz, wrote on the micro-blogging website, “Adnan sami if you have guts just message on kashmir issue then see tera yeh India tera kia haal karta hai…”
To this, Sami gave a befitting response and said, “Sure…Kashmir is an integral part of India. Don’t poke your nose in things that do NOT belong to you!”
Below, see the conversation:
Sami, who has super hit songs such as Tera Chehra, Lift Karadey, Chain Mujhe Ab Aaye Na and Bhar Do Jholi Meri to his credit, had applied for Indian citizenship in May 2015 when the Pakistani government had denied renewal of his passport. In December the same year, his request was approved by the Ministry of Home Affairs, India.
The scathing social media attack on Sami comes on the heels of India’s decisions to scrap the Article 370 of the Constitution and bifurcation of Jammu & Kashmir into two union territories – Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.
Since the abrogation of Article 370 strips the disputed region of J&K of its special status, the Imran Khan-led government of Pakistan is severely displeased with what is being hailed by many in India as a historic move. In his parliamentary address, Khan had gone on to warn India of another Pulwama-like attack. The February 2019 ambush had resulted in the killing of more than 40 soldiers, the responsibility of which was taken by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-E-Mohammad.
