Hindu group protest against Atif Aslam concert

The Akhil Bhartiya Hindu Kranti Dal wants the authorities to cancel the permission given to a concert by Pakistani singer Atif Aslam here next month.

The Hindu body, demands the cancellation of the concert scheduled at the Leisure Valley HUDA ground at Sector 29.

“The district administration has been hurting the sentiments of the people of the country by giving permission for such Pakistani concerts,” read the memorandum.

“Pakistan-sponsored terrorists have been killing our soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir… We will definitely and strongly oppose such events,” Rajeev Mittal of the Kranti Dal told IANS.

Earlier, Atif Aslam had backed out of a scheduled performance here on August 27, 2016 because the organisers had not transferred the performance payment.

Pakistani artistes working or performing in India have come under attack since the September 18 killing of 18 soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir by terrorists linked to Pakistan.

Atif Aslam has a huge fan following in India, where he has lent his voice to a number of popular Bollywood tracks over the years. He has performed at concerts in India on several occasions and has also been a judge on Indian reality television shows.
