Citizenship woes continue for Pakistani singer Adnan Sami. While Pakistan’s interior ministry has given orders to cancel Adnan Sami’s passport due to him sending a disrespectful letter to the Pakistan’s High Commission in India, the singer has a different story to tell.
Sami presented his point of view through a tweet.
According to him, he hasn’t sent any letter to the authorities apart from the form. Whereas, it was earlier reported that he had allegedly stated in a letter to the high commission that India is his home now and he doesn’t need green passport anymore.
Sami has now challenged Pakistani officials to present the letter they were referring to as a proof.
Only a day ago, Pakistani officials issued a statement about the cancellation of Sami’s passport, saying he failed to meet the criterion mentioned in the country’s laws.
Talking to The Express Tribune, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar confirmed the development, saying the citizen documentation of the singer was cancelled.
“We will not issue NOC to him,” he said.
An NOC is a basic requirement for Sami to acquire any other country’s citizenship.
Pakistan officials denied the issuance of renunciation of citizenship to the singer stating that he had shown disrespect to his national identity.

Reportedly, the officials were offended by a line written in the letter which Sami sent to Pakistan’s High Commission in India along with his passport. According to them, Sami had disrespected the ‘sacred documents’ by saying, “I don’t need the green passport anymore. I have found my home in India.”
“Why would we issue the certificate to a man who has no respect for ‘sacred’ documents,” a senior officer of the interior ministry said.
He has now been asked to submit an unconditional apology and follow the correct procedure in order to process his request for the certificate.
The whole episode actually began five months ago when Sami’s passport expired, but Pakistani authorities refused to renew it. He was then given permission to stay in India for indefinite period after he requested the Indian home ministry for exemption from deportation on humanitarian grounds.
