Adnan Sami's Snapchat tweet proves Pakistanis will never get over his 'new nationality'

Adnan Sami just doesn't have it easy.

The singer recently posted about his decision to uninstall Snapchat due to the remark made by the app's CEO.

Variety recently reported that a former Snapchat employee revealed CEO Evan Speigel had said, "This app is only for rich people. I don't want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain."

This caused an outrage as many Indians took to Twitter to express their anger. One of them was Adnan Sami.

Unfortunately for the singer, he ended up being trolled by the Pakistani Twitterverse.

The tweets had little to do with Snapchat and more to do with Adnan Sami's Indian nationality. There were harsh comments about the singer buttering up to the country he's now a citizen of.

This shows how the singer's decision to seek Indian citizenship is still not settling well with many here. From implications of being a traitor to assumptions of him needing validation from India, there were all sorts of remarks, many too vulgar to mention.

Adnan Sami had a response for the trolls.

The singer has come under attack many times with haters taking his words to mean something controversial or anti-Pakistan. A recent example was the LoC crossfire tweet. Some Pakistanis construed his salute to the Indian Army as an affront to Pakistan. Adnan Sami responded by reminding people how his tweet was about terrorism and had no mention of Pakistanis.

One thing's for sure, Adnan Sami definitely does not enjoy being trolled.

mohammad H Khan Apr 18, 2017 04:07pm

Imagine there is no country, it is hard to do, nothing to kill or die for.. God created the entire world for human beings. how I wish if we could live where we the individuals want to.. You may say I am a dreamer but I am not the only one...

Khilari Apr 18, 2017 04:19pm

Leave us alone. We don't want to hear anything about Adnan Sami khan.

butterfly Apr 18, 2017 04:25pm

Adnan Sami is a decent and brave person.. at least he is loyal to the state he lives in! unlike many many Pakistanis! Pakistanis should do some soul searching first!

Despoinna Apr 18, 2017 04:50pm

The best way is to ignore him. Totally. His attention seeking tactics will die automatically.

ENGR Hamid Shafiq Apr 18, 2017 04:59pm

Who cares of your words?

HSS Apr 18, 2017 06:03pm

@waleed fakhar ..the truth

secular Apr 18, 2017 06:38pm

@ENGR Hamid Shafiq I think Pakistanis care a lot of his word. That is they trolled him.

schali Apr 18, 2017 08:08pm

@waleed fakhar Intelligence, evidently!!

kash Apr 18, 2017 08:28pm

he recently had concerts in UK, I hope the Pakistanis boycotted his shows and I hope it was a low turnout

Faraz Apr 18, 2017 09:00pm

Adnan Sami Khan, who???

global citizen Apr 18, 2017 09:05pm

he is free to choose where he wants to live or what he wants to be called. however, he seems too desperate seeking validation and attention.

Abdulla Hussain Apr 18, 2017 09:45pm

I think it is better to forget this guy, he is not from amongst us. Let him enjoy his roller coaster relationship in his chosen country. His father's soul must be crying.

bluphin Apr 18, 2017 10:06pm

Who cares!

aj Apr 18, 2017 10:59pm

When you discuss some one it means he is important. The best punishment is silennce. He or she dies her or his own death. Just ignore him as if he does not exist. If you care for him then you can be considered unpatriotic ilke him so just let it go

U Apr 19, 2017 12:05am

@mohammad H Khan dear, once said by great french thinker, " Man is born free but bounded in chains".

rev Apr 19, 2017 12:47am

Dont think he is looking for validation...i used to listen to his songs even in South Indian films too,so many that i thought he was Indian citizen since childhood.I found out recently that he is from pakistan.

hyat Apr 19, 2017 01:04am

there are thousands of people who migrate to Pakistan but have loyalty with india there is no doubt. I think all those shows loyalty to india show courage like adnan sami and go india and live there.

Sodawatermixer Apr 19, 2017 03:20am

@kash whats their to boycott? His songs arent that good for anyone to spend money anyways

Sandeep N Mahamunkar Apr 19, 2017 03:57am

@waleed fakhar may be he taught him to take sane decisions.

Mitra Apr 19, 2017 06:08am

At least he is loyal to the country where he lives in unlike many Pakistani who lives in Pakistan but loyal to panama

azadi dil ki Apr 19, 2017 06:13am

Yes we should teach a lesson to snapchat ceo by uninstalling the app. Good move Adnan Sami, you did the right thing. And Nationality is your personal matter, you are a legal citizen of India with freedom of expression guaranteed by the Constitution. I never seen him saying anything wrong about Pakistan, then why get trolled.

Haider Apr 19, 2017 06:51am

Does he have a choice?

uchak Apr 19, 2017 08:27am

I personally think that the trolling def did not "get" him. He was pretty dignified and pretty composed. Just because he changed nationality does not mean he is a bad guy. There are millions of Pakistanis who apply for a different passport every year, so what is wrong with him? There are many who come to India, as well as the reverse. Till date he has not said anything against Pakistan, so why are people getting angry at him? Why is it that a country's self image is dependent on a particular person's citizenship?

downunder Apr 19, 2017 08:49am

Looks like him taking Indian citizenship is still a sore point, this even gets worse when he rubs it in.

Manji Apr 19, 2017 09:39am

Basic fact is Snapchat CEO denied such comments moreover it was a rumour that was spread by disgruntled ex-snapchat employees.Worst case is because of this rumour Snapchat ratings on Google play fell from 4.4 to 3.9, moreover Snapchat is on damage control mode.When worlds second largest smartphone market gets offended things don't go well.

KRIS Apr 19, 2017 10:11am

@mohammad H Khan - What a beautiful thought! This universe is vast and earth is just a tiny speck in the larger scheme of things. Instead of appreciating this master creation together, we keep looking for ways to divide ourselves from one another.

Vinoth Ranganadhan Apr 19, 2017 12:39pm

@Abdulla Hussain dont worry about his father's soul. Worry about your mother's soul. Let him take care of his duty...

Ali Apr 19, 2017 01:49pm

Is he that important??

Amir iqbal Apr 19, 2017 05:51pm

Yaar people need to get over themselves. Yeh EGO is not good. Adnan is now an Indian. THAT IS IT.

Hk Apr 20, 2017 08:31am

To be honest, I don't care about this person, it is better he is on the other side.

KP Apr 20, 2017 04:44pm

@waleed fakhar Probably all of this is one big double agent plot

Filmy Guy Apr 20, 2017 06:00pm

@Despoinna ... he never said anything to seek Pakistani attention, but "jilted lovers" cannot be controlled so easily and they end up messing up with anything said, even if it is not meant for them.

Filmy Guy Apr 20, 2017 06:03pm

@global citizen ... what he said to seek attention of Pakistanis. or was it the pakistanis trying to seek his attention? read the news again.

Yesu dAs Apr 22, 2017 08:42am

What a loser!!!
