New Delhi: Pakistani singer Atif Aslam fell prey to trolls recently for singing an Indian song at a Pakistan Independence function in New York earlier this month.

Atif sang the popular Bollywood song ‘Tera Hone Laga Hoon’ from the film Azab Prem Ki Gazab Kahanii- a song that had earned him commendations in both India and Pakistan when it was released in the year 2009.


However, many critics targeted Aslam for pickig an Indian song and questioned his patriotism.



A user also sought an official apology from Aslam.



Another user asked him to leave Pakistan and go to their rival nation.





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



While many trolled Aslam, many of his fans also came out in his defence.
