Not long ago musician Adnan Sami became a target for trolls for lauding India’s cowardly strike following the cross-border tension between India and Pakistan. However, the former Pakistani citizen recently added more fuel to the fire with a series of tweets after India revoked Kashmir’s special status.
In response to a question inquiring how he copes with all the criticism from Pakistan, he called Pakistanis “helpless, misguided and frustrated”.
My dear, itâ€™s okay; theyâ€™re basically helpless, misguided & frustrated about their own lives & are taking it out on me since they know I moved on. I forgive them & pray that God improves their lives. They are actually victims…Hugs.??? https://t.co/E8H5azu3yG

Later on he tried to clarify his stance, worsening the matters as he tweeted on Monday, “I’m not against the people of Pakistan… I’m against terrorism and the Pakistani Army which has provoked wars, destroyed democracy and the mindset of the people of Pakistan.”
Just for the record, Iâ€™m NOT against d people of Pakistan. I love & respect ALL who love me. Therefore I love d ppl of Pak too. Iâ€™m against Terrorism & against d Pak Army which has provoked wars wt both its neighbours & destroyed democracy & the mindset of the ppl of Pak.
