According to reports, Atif sang one of his own Indian tracks “Tera Honay Laga Hoon” from the Indian movie “Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani”, at the concert which landed him into hot water as Pakistani fans across the country started pointing fingers at him for choosing an inappropriate song to sing at an event held to commemorate Independence day.

The Jal fame singer took to Instagram to expressed his views about own on-going controversy about him and called it a “fake Propaganda”.

The post reads: “Its upon Allah to give respect. The green flag is my identity and my fans know well how much I am proud of it.”

He also thanked his fans who defended him in the face of “Fake Propaganda” and added that “I hope Naaya Pakistan learns to respect those people who made the country proud across the world.”

Where the people and the prominent artists criticised Atif,  Shafqat Amanat Ali -Pakistani classical singer who needs no introduction- stood up for him and tweeted:

“I stand in support with Atif Aslam for singing his songs at the parade. Music is not Indian or Pakistani. It is just music! Singers are synonymous with their songs which are loved equally by fans from every country. Should have briefed him if they wanted national songs.”
