Atif Aslam, the famous singer of the Bollywood has a voice that can make anyone lost in the rhythm. He has given a number of Bollywood songs so far. Well, recently, the singer was invited to sing at the Independence Day Parade in New York.
At this event, the singer crooned his famous songs and at one point he sang Tera Hone Laga Hoon from Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani. As it is an Indian song, this didn’t go well down with Pakistani fans and they lashed out at him for singing a Bollywood song at their Independence Day. They took to social media to express their anger.
Not only this, Pakistanis also got raged as Atif refused to hold the Pakistani flag, reportedly.
However, many like vocalist Shafqat Amanat Ali, who has also lent his voice to some Indian songs, defended Atif.
“I stand in support of Atif Aslam for singing his songs at the parade. Music is not Indian or Pakistani. It’s just music. Singers are synonymous with their songs which are loved equally by fans from every country,”
“Simply love my haters Bayshak Allah izzat denay aur rakhnay wala hai Sabz jhanda meri pehchan Bayshak Allah izzat denay aur rakhnay wala hai Sabz jhanda meri pehchan hai or merey fans jantay hain k mein iska ehtaram achi tarah janta hun, Mje bohat khushi aur fakhar hai k meray fans fake propaganda Ka jawab dena achi tarah Jantay hain ..
