Pakistani star Adnan Siddiqui refused to attend an event in the United States (US) after he learnt that some Indian artists have also been invited.
“In solidarity with countless Muslims around the world, I won’t be attending APPNA event in US where some Indian artists are invited too. Nothing against the artistes but my conscience doesn’t allow me to overlook the humiliation of revered Prophet (PBUH) by Indian leaders.”
Adnan Siddiqui has refused to attend the event because of the derogatory remarks made by BJP spokespersons Nupur Sharma and Naveen Kumar Jindal. India’s ruling party suspended Sharma and expelled Jindal. The two also issued public apologies. The Biden administration in the United States (US) had also condemned the derogatory remarks made by BJP spokespersons.
