Pakistani singer Atif Aslam trolled for singing Bollywood song at Pak Independence day function
However, many critics targeted Aslam for pickig an Indian song and questioned his patriotism.
Now we all Pakistanis should not listen him and bycot #atifaslam ,he really don't deserve our love and appreciation because he is more indian than pakistani.#Shame #مشعل_راہ_گانے #RehamKhan #AtifAslam pic.twitter.com/Vf6lbWsawK

Singer Shafqat Amanat Ali, who has also lent his voice to many Bollywood songs, stood in Atif’s support. Ali said that music is not Indian or Pakistani. It is just music! Singers are synonymous with their songs which are loved equally by fans from every country
I stand in support with @itsaadee for singing his songs at the parade. Music is not Indian or Pakistani. It is just music! Singers r synonymous with their songs which r loved equally by fans from every country. Should have briefed him if they wanted national songs #AtifAslam

While many trolled Aslam, many of his fans also came out in his defence.
It is okay if @itsaadee sings any of his songs in any of his event. Who are we to judge his patriotism? He has sung many songs for Army and Airforce, no one remembers that but yeah of course one song and he becomes anti-Pak. Applause for this mindset ????????#AtifAslam #ProudPakistan
