“A man who fought against Pakistan is termed an infiltrator and Padma Shri to the son of a man who fought against India as part of Pakistan Air Force?

New Delhi: Ever since Government of India confirmed that Adnan Sami will be granted Padma Shri award this year, the singer has been receiving many negative reactions on Twitter. Few people congratulated him for the award, many have criticized the ruling Bharatiya Janta Party government for the same, including the primary opposition of the nation the Indian National Congress.

Jaiveer Shergill, the national spokesperson of the Congress, slammed the Centre for conferring the honour on Adnan Sami, who received Indian citizenship only four years ago.

Shergill said that on the one hand, while retired Indian Army Junior Commissioned Officer Mohammad Sanaullah has been tagged as a “ghuspethiya” in the NRC list by the Centre, on the other hand, Adnan Sami, whose father fought against India during the 1999 Kargil War, has been honoured with the Padma Shri.

The Congress leader asked three questions in his tweet, one of them being: “Kya ek naya formula aagya hai ki karo Bhartiya Janta Party ki chamchagiri, milega tumko Padma Shri (Is this the new formula – be a sycophant of the BJP, and you’ll get the Padma Shri)?”

“A man who fought against Pakistan is termed an infiltrator and Padma Shri to the son of a man who fought against India as part of Pakistan Air Force? Do you need to serve the society for a Padma Shri or just sing appreciate the government?”.

Shergill also share an article on the BJP government’s honour to Padma Shri, to which, Adnan Sami replied, “Hey kid, did you get ur brain from a ‘Clearance Sale’ or from a second-hand novelty store? Did they teach you in Berkley that a son is to be held accountable or penalized for the acts of his parents? And you are a lawyer. Is that what you learned in law school? Good luck with that.

Jaiveer Shergill soon hit back at Sami with, “Uncle, I can reply in your language but ‘Indian’ culture teaches us to be respectful even to our enemies – you jumped border only recently so guess you are still learning. An objection is to Policy of declaring Indian Soldiers as a foreigner and giving an award to the family of a Pakistan soldier. Good Day.

In 2016, Adnan Sami was granted Indian citizenship after he requested the Indian government to legalize his citizenship on humanitarian grounds.
