In an amazing co-incidence, the birthday of Adnan Sami, who was a Pakistani national before adopting Indian citizenship, falls on the Indian Independence Day, one day before the Pakistani Independence Day. The singer-music composer got trolled by Pakistanis for not wishing his former country for Independence Day, but he gave a fitting response to the trolls that he will convey greetings on his country’s Independence Day. The 46-year-old stated that the Pakistanis still can’t tolerate the fact that he decided to become an Indian.
Adnan Sami opened up, from Munich, on Pakistanis targetting him, in an exclusive interaction with Republic Media Network Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami on R Bharat’s ‘Poochta Hai Bharat’.
Adnan stated, “They have a disease, they can’t face the truth. I haven’t made any wrong decision. They told me why I was not tweeting about Independence Day (August 14), I said I’ll do it tomorrow. Because my Independence Day is today (August 15), I didn’t say anything wrong or misbehaved with anyone, but people got angry, they couldn’t tolerate when I wished my fellow Indians.”
Pakistanis keep trolling Adnan, be it when the India-Pakistan match takes place or when recently Article 370 was scrapped. The Birthday boy was asked they keep targetting him.
The ‘Tera Chehra’ star replied, “They can’t digest the fact that I have become an Indian. Their narrative has been that Indian Muslims are treated unjustly. I have spent 17 years here, I observed what happens here and I understood that whatever they published and believe there is completely wrong. That’s how I decided that I want to be an Indian. They wonder why a person with an influential background, my father worked in the government, could leave everything and come to India. ‘Is something wrong with our country?’ they ask. Of course, there is something wrong.”
