|Adnan Sami gets Indian citizenship|
NEW DELHI, Jan 1 - There is no intolerance in India, says Pakistan-born singer Adnan Sami after becoming an Indian citizen today.
A smiling Sami also sang his famous song, Teri oonchi shaan hai maula...Mujhko bhi to lift kara de,’ after he received a citizenship certificate from Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju at North Block here in the presence of his wife, Roya.
Asked about concerns expressed by actors Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan about the alleged growing intolerance in India, the 46-year-old singer said everyone was entitled to his or her own opinion and their remarks were perhaps based on their own experience. “Had there been intolerance, I would not have taken Indian citizenship. I have never experienced intolerance. There is no intolerance in India,” he said. – PTI
