On August 6, the BJP government of India came with the landmark decision of bifurcating Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories (Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh). Prior to the day of decision, the authorities suspended internet, mobile services, and local cable television networks in J&K leaving the people of the state in a tensed situation. While some opposed the decision by the government, some lauded it.

Pakistani singer Atif Aslam who is also popular in India for his songs has condemned the decision of the Indian government. Taking to his Twitter handle, he wrote, “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.” This tweet didn’t go well with a section of people and he got brutally trolled for it.


Atif is going for Hajj, so before leaving he tweeted and in the same tweet he wrote, “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.”
