New Delhi: Singer Adnan Sami, who is of Pakistani origin but is now an Indian citizen, has hailed the Indian Army for conducting surgical strikes on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir. On being trolled on Twitter by Pakistanis, he said their outburst clearly means they fail to distinguish between "terrorist and Pakistan".
"Pakistanis are outraged by my earlier tweet. Their outburst clearly means they see terrorist and Pakistan as the same! Self-goal. Stop terrorism," Adnan tweeted on Friday after receiving hate comments on his previous post.
The singer, who received his certificate of Indian citizenship earlier this year, had first tweeted: "Big Congratulations to PMO India and our brave armed forces for a brilliant, successful and mature strategic strike against terrorism! Salute."

Adnan, whose father Arshad Sami Khan was a diplomat and served as Pakistan's ambassador to 14 countries, angered many Twitter users, including Salman Ahmad of Pakistani band Junoon.
"Being the son of a Pakistani ambassador should've told you that no one wins a war between nuclear states. According to your twisted logic, your father too has served as a terrorist ambassador. Have you disowned your parents too," Salman Ahmad questioned Adnan.
Other Twitter users also slammed Adnan, who was born in Britain.
One wrote: "Adnan Bhai you were a Pakistani and you better know the strength of Pak Army."
Another tweeted: "You don't have to keep reaffirming your pledge of allegiance to your new motherland."
A Twitter user also mentioned how his father "was in PAF and was awarded Hilal-i-Imtiaz if I wasn't wrong and you're calling them terrorist".
