INDORE: Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Sunday attacked the Central government for conferring the Padma Shri on Pakistan-origin singer Adnan Sami, who became an Indian citizen in 2016. Addressing “Save the Constitution, Save the Country” rally here in Madhya Pradesh, Singh said Sami’s father had “pounded India with bombs” when he was serving with the Pakistani Air Force (PAF).

“Since Sami is an artist who has come from Pakistan, I had recommended his case to the Indian government for citizenship. He has got Indian citizenship under the Modi government,” the Congress leader said, adding that he never made any recommendation to the government for conferring Padma Shri on Sami.

He said Sami’s father had “dropped bombs against us” while flying a Pakistan Air Force combat plane. “In contrast, Indian Army officer Sanaullah of Assam, who had fought against the enemy, was sent to a detention camp for failing to show documents (during the Assam NRC exercise).

This is the citizenship law of the Modi government,” he said. Sami, born in London to a Pakistani Air force veteran, applied for Indian citizenship in 2015 and became a citizen of the country in January 2016. He was one of the 118 people chosen for the Padma Shri awards by the Centre last month. PTI
