Why are you so ashamed of holding your country’s flag man? You are an artist you can sing whatever you like but avoid your very own country and disgracing its flag like this is so embarrassing.

The said NYC concert of Atif Aslam sparked a debate on Twitter. People are arguing if he did any such thing, or it is merely a fake news. And, there are those who are asking to refrain from the acts of judging someone’s patriotism and doing any unnecessary propaganda to target a celebrity unfairly.
Have heard Atif Aslam refused to hold the Pakistan flag! If true it is shameful indeed! Why wld he do such a senseless act? For commercial purposes? Disgusting! And I really liked his work too. But this act has destroyed it all.

And, those saying that rumors were fake.
Fake rumors are existing that Atif Aslam sung his Bollywood song in “Pakistan independence Show” at USA. And he didn’t keep Pak Flag as well. But reality is ~
it was a Common music concert Where Paki & indian crowd was there. And it wasn’t “Pakistan independence show”
