All Girl Band (Pragaash) Breaks Up After Fatwa...

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/07/13)
An all female band in Kashmir were forced to break-up after a fatwa was declared on them by a senior cleric who stated, "Shameful incidents like gang rapes, that happened in Hindustan recently, are a result of all this. It happens when women are given freedom to roam around, sing and dance."
The members of Pragaash, a Kashmiri word that means "from darkness to light," have been the subject of escalating threats in the past month. The girls, 16-year-old vocalist Noma Nazir, drummer Farah Deeba, and guitarist Aneeka Khalid, both age 15, formed their trio at a music institute where they all took classes after school.

This is absolutely awful.. I can't imagine a place where people think rape is a justifiable punishment for expressing ones self.

They wouldn't have played instruments if they didn't want women to get gang-raped. They all knew this was coming.
