The Congress on Saturday lashed out at singer Mika Singh for using the term, ‘Apna Pakistan’ in a viral video. It said that being an Indian, to praise a country like Pakistan, which ploys against New Delhi is incorrect.
“The act of Mika Singh is very unfortunate and condemnable. He is enjoying the overwhelming fame because of India. The Indians have showered their love on him. He should know that the Pakistan which he is praising is our enemy. Pakistan always plans and plots against India and to praise such a country is incorrect,” Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam.
The leader asked Mika to apologise for his act and to withdraw his statement.
The singer had stirred controversy, after his appeal to his fans in Houston to join him in celebrating the Independence Day of India and “Apna Pakistan”.
People are also said to have taken Singh’s comment as a cruel joke in the wake of the ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC).
