Pakistani singing sensation Atif Aslam is getting a lot of criticism from his countrymen for singing an Indian song at a Pakistan Independence Day function in New York earlier this month. Atif took the stage to sing the melodious ‘Tera Hone Laga Hoon’ from the 2009 film “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani”, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif.
This irked many of his fans who went ahead to question his patriotism. People started bashing him and saying things like “Boycott Atif”, “Anti-Nationalist”, “No respect for Atif” etc. Amidst all the chaos, Shafqat Amanat Ali defended Atif and commented: “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.”
Film critic, Omair Alavi came in to stand with Atif and said: “Don’t Pakistanis go to watch Indian films? Are not Indian dramas a regular on our channels.”
Looks like the logic has died in Pakistan too, people are getting so brainwashed that they can claim anyone patriotic or anti-nationalist as per their standards. They are so blind that they cannot see that the man they are busy trolling is someone who has carved a name for himself with his hard work, someone who has contributed a lot in making Pakistani music famous all around the globe.
