“Big Congratulations to @PMOIndia & our brave Armed forces for a brilliant, successful & mature strategic strike against #terrorism ! #Salute,” he said on Twitter.
Adnan Sami became an Indian citizen in January 2015. As Pakistani artists are being threatened to leave Indian after tension, many wondered on the social media if he too will be asked to leave the country, Samaa reported.
To clear the confusion, the singer took to Twitter on Friday morning to congratulate Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “a brilliant, successful & mature strategic strike against terrorism!”
He said those abusing him for congratulating Modi “see terrorists and Pakistan as the same.”
“Pakistanis r outraged by my earlier tweet. Their outburst clearly means they see Terrorist & Pakistan as the same!” he said in another tweet.
