Atif Aslam Sang A Bollywood Song At An Azaadi Parade, And People Are Fighting Over It

By Arslan Athar | 8 Aug, 2018

Every year, New York hosts a HUGE Choda August mela of sorts. The city goes green and white with patriotism heavy in the air. This year, Atif Aslam was set to perform at the parade, however, people are now having issues with his song choice for the event.

Apparently, the singer sang a song he recorded for a Bollywood movie.

Saraapa Ehtijaaj’? Really? If you think about, it isn’t a huge crime but then again people are pretty sensitive when it comes to nationalism and Pakistani pride.

Some people were actually mad about the whole thing

It was refreshing to see some people logically think through this issue

Even here, a debate was started on the basis of nationalism, pride and self esteem 

Of course, there will people who were just calling them names 

The argument that the show was a show for Pakistan’s Independence Day and the songs should have been Pakistani.

Support for Atif, surprisingly, was unwavering 

A lot of voices advocated for others to CHILL OUT 

Music is definitely universal, and it should be kept that way 

We have the habit of finding nationalistic tones in almost everything, especially when it comes to India. Every year, these discussions happen and this ‘controversies’ arise, but it has honestly just gotten out of hand. I can understand how and why people were offended by him singing a Bollywood song, but isn’t it high time we grow out of this loop we always go into, especially in August.

What do you think of all this? Let us know in the comments 🙂 Sometimes it’s just better to talk about, rather than just spewing out hate.
