Controversy king Mika Singh has landed in soup once again as Greater Houston area’s Indian-American associations have taken strong objection to his call for ‘joint celebration’ of independence days of India and Pakistan.
The singer is set to perform in Houston ahead the independence days of Pakistan and India on August 14 and 15 respectively which has earned the wrath of Federation of Indian-American Associations as they are now asking him to cancel his appearance at the Pakistani concert.
“It is so disturbing to see that Indian singer Mika Singh is performing in Houston against the wishes of prominent Indian-American community in Texas. We condemn any such event that hurts the sentiments of Indian American people,” India House’s Jiten Agarwal was quoted as saying by news agency PTI.
The 40-year-old has drawn widespread flak on social media as well for addressing Pakistan as ‘Humara Pakistan’ in a video posted by organisers of the event.
“15 August ko humara Hindustan azaad hua tha aur 14 ko humara Pakistan,”Mika said in the video.
Tension between India and Pakistan are at all-time high following Uri attack and repeat incidents of ceasefire violation by Pakistan.
