Before departing for Hajj, I would like to ask for everyone’s forgiveness, be it fans, family, friends. Apologies for hurting anyone’s sentiments. kindly keep me in your prayers.''

However, his reaction didn’t go down well with the netizens, especially from Indian users who burst down on the singer for his comments.

Earlier, Pakistani actress Mahira Khan, too, denounced India’s big move. In a tweet, posted on Monday, she said, ''Have we conveniently blocked what we don’t want to address? This is beyond lines drawn on sand, it’s about innocent lives being lost! Heaven is burning and we silently weep.''

On 5 August, the Government of India, in a historic move decided to repeal Article 370 of the constitution which grants special status to Jammu and Kashmir. The government also decided to bifurcate the state into two Union Territories.
