Indian Media Thinks Atif Aslam’s Son is Named ‘Alhamdulilah’

Wait what?

Atif Aslam

Indian media can get a crack out of you on the most unexpected of subjects. Their recent blooper really hit it out of the ballpark as they reported that Atif Aslam has named his second son, ‘Alhamdulilah’.

Do ya reckon, Atif Aslam might take that ‘name suggestion’ into consideration?

So what happened here? We take a look.

Atif Aslam made a statement

As most Muslim parents do,  Atif Aslam also announced the arrival of his baby boy in a similar fashion:

“Ladies and gentlemen our NEW arrival Alhamdulilah. Both mother and baby are fine. Keep us in your prayers and don’t forget to say Mashallah”

Atif was thankful to God and therefore, Alhamdullilah. But someone who works in the Indian media forgot what the term means. And it seems that they took the liberty (free press right?) to report that the child’s name is ‘Alhamdulilah’.


Moments like this call for a Twitter field day, and Twitterati served some of their best swings.

How’s this for a nickname?

Netizens even offered follow-ups.

Really feeling the holiday cheer with this one.

Finally, someone who can take a joke and make one too.


Speaking of taking a joke.

This isn’t a first from Indian media and we don’t expect it to be their last (or forever).


Except it is true. Screenshots last forever.

Some people still want to know:


Things got serious as people dug into how does such a blooper some to be?


In the end, we got some pretty good laughs out of this. The post has been corrected. Atif Aslam has issued a statement. So let’s not be ‘The Grinch‘ around Whoville too long. Twitter will come up with something funnier soon enough.
