Mumbai, Oct 26 (IANS) Bollywood composer-singer Adnan Sami says social media bullying is almost like a breach of human freedom of speech.

The “Bhar do jholi” singer on Friday tweeted: “The kind of interference and judgements that happen on social media in general like some people chastising others for a simple statement or even a photograph are akin to a breach of human freedom of speech.”

Adnan, of Pakistani descent, has often been a victim of social media bullying for putting out his views on platforms like Twitter. In 2017, he was trolled by Pakistani trolls. However, the 45-year-old singer has never shied away from professing his pride and high regard in being an Indian.

On the work front, he will be seen in “Afghan – In Search of a Home”, which revolves around an Afghan refugee who is forced to leave his land and ends up in a shelter in India. The process of travelling through the country and how his life changes forms the crux of the story.
