Pakistan’s acclaimed signer Atif Aslam landed in hot water after he decided to sing an Indian song at an Independence Day Parade held in New York City.
During the celebrations of the Independence Day held in the Big Apple earlier this week, the Pakistani heartthrob ended up letting some of his fans down by choosing to sing one of his hit Indian tracks titled ‘Tera Hone Laga Hoon’ from the 2009 released film ‘Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani’.
The ‘Doorie’ singer’s section left the social media ablaze who propositioned a boycott against the singer for his actions.

From day one i don't like atif aslam he is very proudy and he thinks that he is the best, no one is like him etc.
Now boycott not only #AtifAslam but also indian content.
I really feel bad to see indian content as our top trends.
This needs to be stop.

But Atif Aslam did also receive lots of support on social media too, with this tweet being the best:
