Adnan Sami Only Pakistani Product We Are Ashamed Of: Shaan Shahid
Actor Shaan Shahid took jabs at Indian pop star Adnan Sami saying that the latter was the only Pakistani product the country was ashamed of.
Tensions between Pakistan and India are high ever since the Pulwama Attack on February 14. Not just politicians, but celebrities from both sides of the border are also busy tweeting messages of support for their particular nations. Some are also attacking one another.
Following the trend, Sami too tweeted messages of support for the Indian Army and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, for which he was subjected to criticism and trolling from social media users in Pakistan.
He also faced criticism from high-profile Pakistani Twitter users. For example, Shaan Shahid took to Twitter to slam Adnan Sami calling him ‘a Pakistani product the country was ashamed of’. Shaan had also earlier called for removal of images and posters of Indian celebrities from billboards throughout Pakistan.
Adnan Sami is not a Pakistani neither an agent as intelligence agents have honour he is the only Pakistani product that we are ashamed of . Keep him he is yours ..

Shaan also said that Adnan was neither a Pakistani nor an intelligence agent. This particular comment was with reference to Sami being subjected to jokes and memes in Pakistani social media circles about how he is an ‘ISI agent’.
With both Pakistan and India in a war-like situation, artists, sports personalities, academics and journalists from both sides of the border have an important role to play.
Bollywood ace Ranveer Singh recently said that he was against ban on Pakistani artists and performers in India. He said that sports and art must not be politicized and he is a firm believer in the theory. He also said that artists have an important role to play in peace-making process.
