Abhijeet, you give India, a bad name!



"These qawwals don't come here on their marit but due to paki Dalals #prestitute and @MaheshNBhatt ," ranted singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya on twitter. This was one of the objectionable tweets of Abhijeet post his controversial statement where he called legendary Pakistani singer Ghulam Ali as a "Dengue artist from a terrorist country". "#GhulamGigCancelled kitni baar bhagaya bt these shameless hv no self respect no work except terrorism bt we feed them along wd prestitutes," Abhijeet frothed. When he got a backlash on twitter and was reminded that Ghulam Ali sahab's concert was in the memory of Jagjit Singh sahab, Abhijeet was least remorseful. Here are a few tweets of Abhijeet that reflect his deeply disturbed 'state-of-mind'. We won't be able to post a few of the tweets that he retweeted as they are in extremely bad taste.


"Nation and patriotism 1st .. Gana bajana later, #Shameless anti national Indian Media and politicians .."


"Shut up.. Shaadi ke qwalon ko humne sar pe chadhaya ..wait jis din tum hawala singers ko asli padegi .. My foot"


"Aa jao .. Inki ..to..beep. Ko ..beep Hain.. Humari political parties sirf bhokti hain"


It is widely known that Abhijeet has made distasteful statements in the past about top movie stars, music companies and filmmakers. He has made weird allegations against Shah Rukh Khan and accused a music company of lifting one of his no-one-heard-it-before private album song and turning it into a superhit movie song. Almost no one wants to work with the insurmountably arrogant and brash singer any more. While Ghulam Ali sahab, despite his old age, is still very relevant and is invited to perform, Abhijeet is a has-been singer who hasn't had anything notable to his credit in the last 15 years. He is good for judging singing reality shows as he brings in the TRPs with his nasty fights.


When Abhijeet derogatorily calls Ghulam Ali sahab a 'Qawwal', obviously he doesn't know the difference between a Ghazal singer and a Qawwal. Also, Qawwali singing is one of the most cherished forms of singing that is revered and loved by millions in India as well as abroad across all religions. The 'Artiste' in him is obviously dead. He seems to have given up. The only way for him to stay in the 'news' is by making provocative statements now and then. The best way to deal with such people is to ignore them. Bollywood has been ignoring him for a long time now. It is time the media stops taking him seriously as well. All that I can say is that Shame on you Abhijeet, you give India and the artiste community a bad name!
