While many had criticised Aslam for singing a song which he had originally recorded for a Bollywood film, fellow singer Shafqat Amanat Ali had defended him.

“I stand in support with Atif Aslam for singing his songs at the parade. Music is not Indian or Pakistani. It is just music! Singers are synonymous with their songs which are loved equally by fans from every country. Should have briefed him if they wanted national songs,” he tweeted.
