Adnan Sami spewed venom against Pakistan in a tweet sent out on Friday. The singer and composer congratulated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the country’s armed forces for a ‘surgical strike’ against terrorism.
His tweet was met with criticism by Pakistanis on Twitter, with popular musician Salman Ahmad terming it a sad day for arts and culture.
In response to the criticism, Sami once again took to Twitter and said the “outburst clearly means they see terrorist and Pakistan as the same.”
Adnan Sami who is originally from Pakistan was granted Indian citizenship in January 2016.
On Thursday two Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom when Indian forces resorted to unprovoked firing across the LoC.
The unprovoked fire was painted as a surgical strike by senior Indian officials, in a move apparently aimed to satisfy the public.
Pakistan rebuffed the claims with the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) saying, “There has been no surgical strike by India, instead there had been cross-border fire initiated and conducted by Indian forces which is an existential phenomenon”.
