Pakistani-origin Bollywood singer Adnan Sami, who is half Kashmiri, recently perform a musical gala in Srinagar.
The Tera Chehra singer then raged war with the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah on Twitter, where he called the former CM a ‘sadistic sore loser.’
The politician had retweeted a tweet addressing the lack of attendees at the concert.
Abdullah went on to say, “That’s a real pity. I hope people have filled those seats now. For an evening they can let the music transport them to a more peaceful place.”
Sami was quick to defend himself as he posted some more pictures of the concert, saying that these were the original pictures of the crowd and how a former CM should be unnerved by a music concert.
“Bro you are a former CM. You shouldn’t be so unnerved by a music concert. You obviously have bad sources who lie to you – HERE are the photos!! #GrowUp”, Sami wrote.
To which, Abdullah asked the most obvious question! “How does hoping you have a houseful suggest I’m unnerved? I’m glad people got to enjoy an evening of music. I used to like yours at one time,” he wrote.
To which Sami retorted, “Oh please Omar! U retweeting people’s photos like a sadistic sore loser speaks volumes of your lack of stature & pettiness. Up your game- Its music!”
Abdullah then called the spat off by tweeting, “Aren’t you a big enough star? Do you really need the column inches in a gossip piece “Omar-Adnan spar”? I don’t. Enjoy Srinagar. Good night.
To which Sami responded, “Your fickle mind should know that it’s not about being a star. It’s about coming together for the purpose of promoting peace, love & harmony. Good night.”
Abdullah’s last tweet to end the matter was, “Like you said right in the beginning – I am a former CM & so I’ll ignore yr 7-8 insults in 3 tweets. Thanks for coming to Srinagar. Stay safe.”
To this, Sami replied, “So you finally realised huh! Der aye durust aye.”
Many locals have expressed disappointment about the concert being a closed affair and not open to the general public.
“We looked forward to the concert and were ready to pay for the tickets, but we are now told it is not an open concert,” said Suhail Ahmad, 23, a university student.
According to the organisers, the initial plan was for an open concert but security concerns forced it otherwise.
