Adnan Sami to Get Indian Citizenship: Twitter Disapproves
While India has become a hotbed of threats for Pakistani sportsmen and celebrities, a shocking news yesterday unveiled that Pakistan’s prominent singer Adnan Sami Khan is all set to receive Indian citizenship.
According to The Hindu, Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi finally gave an affirmation to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) regarding Indian nationality of Sami, who has been living in the country for more than a decade. The singer will be granted citizenship under Section 6 of the Indian Citizenship Act, 1955.
Initially setting foot in India in 2001, the Pakistani icon was dwelling in the neighboring nation on a one -year visitor’s visa. Later. he was allotted the right to live on Indian soil for an indefinite time period on humanitarian grounds after his expiration of Pakistani passport. Now, he has eventually availed exclusive rights of Indian citizenship.

Throughout his stay, Sami has devoted his vocals to various Bollywood movies. His much recent work was for Salman Khan’s Bajrangi Bhaijaan qawwali tune.
While the vocalist from Lahore must be ecstatic with the news, Twitter appears to be quite skeptical. Check how Twitterati from both India and Pakistan reacted on Adnan Sami Khan getting hold of Indian citizenship.
Now that #AdnanSami has applied for #Indian citizenship, will more disgruntled #Pakistani artistes follow him? Perhaps.
