Singer Adnan Sami, who renounced Pakistani nationality to become an Indian citizen a few years back, is on the Twitter trends list in Pakistan. Reason? The singer is being trolled for changing his Twitter display picture posing with Indian flag.
A user from Pakistan @mshafique asked Adnan Sami about his father's details and he gave it back to him by saying that his father was born in India and died in India. For those unaware, Adnan Sami’s father, Arshad Sami Khan, a Pashtun served as Pakistani Air Force pilot and later became a Pakistani diplomat and bureaucrat. He served 3 Presidents of Pakistan as their aide-de-camp. He then joined the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as chief of protocol.
Take a look -
Sami was born in London to a Pakistani diplomat father and his mother was from Jammu and Kashmir. The singer relocated to India in the late 1990s and took Indian nationality on January 1, 2016 after giving up his Pakistani citizenship.
On August 14 (Pakistan's Independence Day), a user asked Adnan Sami why he doesn't tweet on India's Independence Day, to which he said, he will on August 15. Sami gave it back to the troll with an example of Jinnah.
Back in June, singer Adnan Sami's Twitter account was allegedly hacked on Tuesday by Ayyildiz Tim, the same Turkish hacker group, Ayyildiz Tim, which attacked megastar Amitabh Bachchan's microblogging page a day ago.
Similar to how Bachchan's profile was compromised, the group replaced Sami's profile picture with a photo of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and changed the bio, adding "Ayyildiz Tim Love Pakistan" with an emoji of Pakistani and Turkish flags.
Sami previously held a Pakistani passport and received Indian citizenship in 2015.
The group had previously hacked Twitter accounts of actors Shahid Kapoor and Anupam Kher among others as well.
