It comes to the surprise of many that firstly how can a Pakistani give remarks Adnan Sami did. After all this was the country that made him what he is today.
There may be questions on his loyalty in future too as he can leave Indian citizenship if he goes to some other country. This remains to be seen but for now he is finally granted permission to stay in India, what he calls as his home.
Pakistani singer Adnan Sami is now an Indian! Noted singer Adnan Sami, who is of Pakistani descent, was on Friday granted the certificate of Indian citizenship from Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju here. Describing it as his "new birth", he has thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for making him an Indian citizen officially. "A new feeling. A new belonging. A new love affair. A new country. Jai Hind,” Sami wrote on Twitter. – News credit pinkvilla #adnansami
After his statement about the Pakistani passport, he was rightly refused any help from Pakistani government and he hoped to land with the citizenship.
On the occasion of finally receiving it, he had this to say:
“I’ve traveled so far. And all I’ve done is come back… home.”
(Quote from the movie ‘Gandhi’)
