Adnan sami, Adnan sami singer, Adnan Sami terrorism, adnan sami fawad khan, adnan sami safaigiri awards, Adnan sami independence day Adnan Sami hints directly at Fawad Khan, Mahira Khan and other Pakistani actors who chose to remain silent on Uri and Jammu Kashmir attacks.

Adnan Sami, who recently received his Indian nationality, has been making news for his pro-Indian statements on different occasions. Now, the singer is trending for his statement which hints at the Pakistani actors who chose to remain silent instead of condemning the attack of Uri. “If your host has extended you a warm welcome, and suddenly a fire breaks out in (his) house, do you just run away? I feel they should have condemned the attack,” Adnan said at an event pointing out that he too had condemned the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai.

The musician equated the Army’s surgical strike across the LoC to an individual having to enter his/her neighbour’s house and clean out their garbage because the neighbour refused to. Taking a strong stand on his statement, Adnan said it is important to understand that the strike took place to eliminate terror camps, irrespective of which side of the border it is and even said that Pakistan should thank India and Indian army for a brilliant, successful, strategic and mature strike against terrorism in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.

The singer, who became the most talked about personality over Twitter for his congratulatory tweet to Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the surgical attack, was trolled by Pakistani citizens, who even went on to label him as “traitor”. On the very day of the announcement of the surgical attacks on the terrorist launch-pads in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), Adnan wrote on Twitter, “Big Congratulations to @PMOIndia & our brave Armed forces for a brilliant, successful & mature strategic strike against #terrorism ! #Salute”

But the singer’s tweet was met with a huge backlash. People have criticised Adnan Sami for siding with India, in spite of being the “son of a PAF pilot”. He, however, chose to give a fitting reply to these people on the Internet. He said: “Pakistanis r outraged by my earlier tweet. Their outburst clearly means they see Terrorist & Pakistan as the same!”

With this, Adnan became one of the many soft targets of the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan. Twitter has been abuzz with hate for Adnan Sami, who was merely expressing his opinion. While MNS workers and supporters have declared that they will boycott artists from Pakistan like Fawad Khan, Ali Fazal, Mahira Khan etc. Adnan is being spewed venom at because he supported India’s stand.

    He has not told anything against stan but against terrorists and all stanis are behind him which itself shows how they do support terrorism as a state and people's policy of stan. You people want to bleed India, the very same land where your artists earn for their livelihood and if someone says against you, you start bashing the person.

    Read Adnan's statement on the surgical strike congratulating Modi. He says strikes against terrorism not stan. So the subsequent statement of Sami saying that stanis are equating terrorists with stani's is correct going by reactions of the stani's themselves. Need to understand the comments before reacting , unless you really equate both together.

    I would answer your post point by point. Firstly adnan did have a say against stanis by putting w nation and terrorist as same. stan suffers from terrorism and some of it (if not all) is supported by indian counterpart. Secondly we dont want to bleed India but kashmir is bleeding already, there is a difference between India and Kashmir, there always was. And last stani artist dont earn their livelihood in india, they were alive and always kicking well unless your decides industry names and shame someone like a dog. Why not? India first, target the soft animals.

    Adnan Sami is helpless and failure guy in his personal life so he has taken Indian nationality. He was hopeless in his life because of divorce from his stani wife. When I was working in Saudi Arabia one South Indian Manager from our customer's office was attended lunch and dinner with us in Sheraton Hotel Jeddah. During dinner gossip he told me we are having a good singer his name is Adnan Swami. I corrected his name is not Adnan Swami. He is stani and his name is Adnan Sami;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Today that South Indian gentleman given name sounds great for him. He might change his name as Adnan Swami. This is his useless comments against stan because till now India is not able to give any proof about surgical strike. Yes India carried surgical strike but in the surgical ward of AIIMS, Delhi.
