New Delhi: The NDA government is set to give Indian citizenship to Pakistani singer Adnan Sami.
The decision was taken after Attorney-General Mukul Rohatgi gave a favourable opinion to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
Sami will be given Indian citizenship under Section 6 of the Indian Citizenship Act, 1955, which allows citizenship, through a certificate of “naturalisation,” to applicants with contribution in the field of science, philosophy, art, literature, world peace or human progress.
