Pakistani politician said Mika's visa should have been canceled
The performance, for which Mika reportedly charged $150,000, turned political after opposition leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party Syed Khursheed Shah raised his voice.
"This is a time when there's a ban on Indian films, dramas, shows, and Pakistan has made its views clear to the Indian government. Even if visas were issued early on they should have been canceled," Shah said.
Subsequently, Twitter users expressed displeasure
Naturally, social media users in India and Pakistan fumed at the event.
Journalist Naila Inayat tweeted, "Happy that Indian singer Mika Singh performed at the mehndi of Gen Musharraf's relative recently in Karachi. God forbid if it was Nawaz Sharif's relative it would be raining ghadarik hashtag already (sic)."
Another one tweeted, "SHAME on such wealth. SHAME on such affluence."
"Alag hi level", tweeted an Indian user
When Bollywood gets banned, Pakistanis get singers flown down to sing bollywood songs for them.
