Atif Aslam is a name to reckon with in the music industry. He has been singing in Bollywood for over a decade and has made a significant name for himself globally. So when he was invited to sing at the Independence Day Parade in New York, he decided to sing some of his popular tracks, one of which happened to be Tera Hone Laga Hoon from Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahaani (2009).

However, he was trolled massively by his fans in Pakistan for singing an Indian song. They expressed their disgust over Atif online. Here's what a few of them had to say:

As always, there were some fans who came out in his support as well.

The whole controversy about asking Pakistani artistes to go back to their country started before the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016), when some political parties in India demanded that Fawad Khan's character be omitted from the film. This was in the wake of the unfortunate attacks in Uri. 

Since then, filmmakers and musicians have refrained from taking Pakistani actors or singers in their films. The disgust over Atif singing a Bollywood song is also born out of the similar cross-border hatred between the two nations.

Atif took to social media to revert to the trolls a little while later. He even thanked Shafqat Amanat Ali for extending his support to Atif. 

Atif wrote, "Let's wear this today #nevergiveup Simply love my haters 😘 Bayshak Allah izat denay aur rakhnay wala hai. Sabz jhanda meri pehchan hai or mere fans jantay hain k mein iska ehtaram kerna achi tarah janta hun. Mje bohat khushi aur fakhar hai k meray fans fake propaganda Ka jawab dena achi tarah Jantay hain .. I hope NAYE PAKISTAN main un sab logon ko izat dena jaan jayen gae jino ne PAKISTAN ka naam poori duniya mein roshan kia hai .. #change. Hats off to #aadeez #fans kia baat hai ap sab ki - huge amount of respect for Shafqat Amanat Ali ✌@armeenakhanofficial #atifaslam Pakistan Zindabad (sic)."
