Adnan Sami is a man of many talents. Apart from being a songwriter and music composer, he is also a talented singer. He has dabbled in acting and is a world-renowned concert pianist. Recently, he added another feather to his cap by effortlessly shutting down trolls who questioned his loyalty towards India. He was at the receiving end of hate and negativity because of his unique position with respect to India and its neighbour Pakistan. Whether they were questions about his father or Independence day, he gave befitting replies to them all.
According to The Times of India, the singer was born in Britain but has Pakistani roots. He was a Canadian citizen up until 2016, after which he received Indian citizenship.
When asked how he manages to deal with all the hate he receives online, this is what he had to say.
My dear, it’s okay; they’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

Then he also tweeted a clarification categorically stating that he was against terrorism and not the ordinary residents living across the border.
Just for the record, I’m NOT against d people of Pakistan. I love & respect ALL who love me. Therefore I love d ppl of Pak too. I’m against Terrorism & against d Pak Army which has provoked wars wt both its neighbours & destroyed democracy & the mindset of the ppl of Pak.

It certainly is saddening to see how some netizens are trying to make him speak up about sensitive issues and start a controversy. But to his credit, Adnan has been continuously slamming them with calm logic and grace; successfully acing the trolling game.
