भाजपा की सरकार रही है भारत रत्न भी मिल सकता है
भाजपा को केवल भारतीय मुसलमानों से नफरत है, पाकिस्तानी मुसलमान तो रिश्तेदार लगते हैं

Some info about his father who was destroying Indian army tanks during 1965 war and here we are awarding his son with national honours just for supporting a political party. If he would have made a real contribution to India then it would be fine but this is shameful. pic.twitter.com/Qk4ymfEMCN

भारत पर ‘बम बरसाने’ वाले पाकिस्तानी के बेटे को ‘पद्मश्री सम्मान’ क्यों ❓❓❓
अदनान सामी के पिता लेफ्टिनेंट ‘अरशद सामी खान’ , पाकिस्तान वायु सेना में थे और 1965 के भारत-पाक युद्ध में उन्होंने भारत पर बम बरसाए थे

Chalo Modiji ki bhakti ka kuch toh fayda hua…
Waise aisa kya kiya hai aapne baakiyon se accha jo padma Shri mil raha??
Bhakt toh aapse bhi zyada acche hai.

For the unversed, Adnan Sami was granted Indian citizenship in 2016 and he is an Indian now. People have to remember that he has been honoured with the award for his contribution towards music and it is illogical to comment on what his father or parents did.
