Kashmir all-girl rock band row: Celebrities tweet against Mufti's fatwa Last Updated : 04 Feb 2013 01:29:20 PM IST File photo: 'Pragaash' - The first all-girls rock band of Kashmir
From politicians to actors, support has been pouring in from all corners on social networking sites for the first all-girls rock band of Kashmir after Grandmufti of Jammu and Kashmir Bashiruddin Ahmad issued a fatwa against them.
Bashiruddin Ahmad on Sunday termed singing as "un-Islamic" and asked the all-girls rock band 'Pragaash' to abandon it.
In response to the fatwa, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who had earlier supported the rock band, tweeted: “Given the importance people attach to the fatwas of the Grand Mufti the less said the better.”
Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon wrote: "Is the world going mad or what??1st vishwaroopan and now this??cmon people show some support! True what this Mufti Azam saying?is Music a Vice in Islam?the most beautiful sounds of music came from Middle east"
Congress MP Naveen Jindal wrote: "Music&art is no 1's exclusve prerogative. It can be a girl band in Kashmir,a writr or a filmmakr.Intolernt voices must b defeated#pragaash"
Barkha Dutt tweeted: "So kashmiri girls don't have the right to sing? Since when ? Music will prevail. As will their freedom #pragaash"
The all-girls band has three class 10 students as its members - vocalist-guitarist Noma Nazir, drummer Farah Deeba and Guitarist Aneeka Khalid.
The first live performance of 'Pragaash' (darkness to light) at Srinagar's music festival 'Battle of the Bands' in December had created ripples in the Valley.
But their euphoria was short-lived as the girls soon started receiving online threats for defying convention by choosing the field of music, leaving their parents worried and forcing them to keep a low profile.
