The ex-Pakistani singer, now an Indian citizen, Adnan Sami on Friday congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian Army for conducting surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC).
In his tweet, Sami said, “Big Congratulations to @PMOIndia & our brave Armed forces for a brilliant, successful & mature strategic strike against #terrorism !”

His tweet enraged a lot of Pakistanis, who began to troll the Lift Kara De.. fame singer on microblogging site Twitter.
Sami responded to the social media criticism by taking to Twitter once again.
In another tweet, the singer said that those abusing him for congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi for Indian Army’s surgical strike in POK, “see terrorists and Pakistan as the same. “
He wrote, “Pakistanis r outraged by my earlier tweet. Their outburst clearly means they see Terrorist & Pakistan as the same!”
