Singer Mika Singh faced netizens wrath after videos of him performing in Karachi went viral on social media. Known to have performed in Karachi at an event organised by former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf's close relative, Mika was banned by film bodies FWICE and All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) and was even called 'anti-national’.
However on returning back in India the singer was seen chanting 'Bharat Mata ki jai' with the mob who were cheering for him. Mika shared a video on his twitter account. He captioned the video as, "Bharat Mata ki Jai! Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome. Happy Independence Day once again and salute to our jawans. They aren’t able to celebrate any festival, all to make our lives better. Jai hind..,"
The video shared on Independence Day shows Mika shouting 'Bharat Mata ki jai' and ‘Vande Mataram’ as he comes back to India. He later went to share another I-Day tweet, "Happy Independence Day .. this is the 1st time it’s happened that we are celebrating from #Kashmir to #Kanyakumari ... Thanxx to @narendramodi for such a wonderful Independence Day ..#Jaihind"
Mika performed in Karachi after Article 370 was revoked which led to tensions between the two countries over Kashmir. Jammu and Kashmir have been turned into two separate union territories.
