The talented and famous Pakistani singer, Atif Aslam, who has sung many hit songs for Bollywood recently posted a tweet regarding the India atrocities on his Twitter.
He tweeted regarding the Indian government decision to revoke the special status to Jammu and Kashmir by scrapping Article 370. He said that he strongly condemns whatever is happening in Kashmir.
“Happy to share something very big with all of you. Inshallah I’ll be leaving soon for the most important journey of my life. Before departing for Hajj, I would like to ask for everyone’s forgiveness, be it fans, family, friends. Apologies for hurting anyone’s sentiments. kindly keep me in your prayers..”
This was further followed by him saying:
“Also I strongly condemn the violence and tyranny being conducted against the Kashmiris. May Allah bless lives of the innocent in #Kashmir and all over the world.”

Atif just tweeted what he actually felt, however, this single tweet backlashed and he faced a lot of criticism, especially from Indian fans.
To add a political statement when you are going for such a spiritual journey is extremely sad. Assume you will find it difficult to sing for Indian films for a long time now. #kashmir #article370 #india. #atifaslam. pic.twitter.com/J8zgBbkKgR

And please don’t fall for any propagandas.
A good decision has been taken for better future of kashmiris. They are indians. They are us. They will be protected.
Let them cry for losing kashmir (as a land and resources, they don’t care about kashmiris )
Kashmir has suffered…

Even though he received a lot of criticism, but some of his fans, mostly Pakistani supported him by tweeting:
He doesn’t need Bollywood the fake Hollywood. He already has his fans all over the world. He had them before Jollywood and will have them after.

He Has Done Nothing Wrong He Just Tweeted for Peace In Kashmir! Modi May Be Right But Kashmiris Should Be Given Right To decide Their Leaders Have been Arrested!
