Pakistan Army general shuts BJP lawmaker up in Twitter spat


News Desk |

The war of words between Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s MLA Raja Singh and Asif Ghafoor, the DG Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) continued on Twitter after the former’s video of imitating a Pakistani song went viral on social media.

A video of Raja Singh went viral on social media in which he was seen singing a copied song “Pakistan Zindabad” released by the ISPR on 23rd March, Pakistan Day. Singh is the member of Telangana Legislative Assembly representing Goshamahal Assembly in the constituency of Hyderabad.

The DG ISPR mocking the Indian MLA said that he was happy that Indians copied their song but advised them to follow the habit of speaking the truth as well.

Singh tweeted on April 12th that he will soon be releasing a new song dedicated to the Indian armed forces. He even posted a teaser of his song on Twitter but the song was a clear copy of the ISPR’s “Pakistan Zindabad” sung by singer Sahir Ali Bagga.

Sharing his video, Raja Singh captioned his video: My new song which will be released on 14th April at 11:45 am on the occasion of #SriRamNavami is dedicated to our#IndianArmy forces.”

The Indian MLA was soon trolled on social media for copying a Pakistani song. The DG ISPR mocking the Indian MLA said that he was happy that Indians copied their song but advised them to follow the habit of speaking the truth as well.

“Glad that you copied. But copy to speak the truth as well,” tweeted Asif Ghafoor.

To which Raja Singh replied back with a video message on his Twitter handle and wrote, “Good to see even #Pakistan media is covering my song #HindustanZindabad. I’m more surprised that even a terriorst nation produces singer’s. #Pakistani singer’s may have copied my song we don’t have to copy anything from a terrorist state like Pakistan”.

In the video, he claimed that he had not copied ISPR’s song but it was vice versa, and further claimed his video had caused unrest in Pakistan’s media.

Asif Ghafoor, then again replied back and tweeted, “Pakistani media isn’t covering the ‘so-called’ song. In rest of the world this is called something else… Second sentence of previous tweet ie “But copy to speak the truth as well” stays valid as expected. This lie too not a surprise. That’s what was said, we can’t be surprised.”

Not only in Pakistan but the BJP MLA is also facing embarrassment at the hands of his country mates on social media.
