One of the members of an all-girl rock group in Indian-administered Kashmir has queried why they have been described as “un-Islamic” when male bands are allowed to perform.
She told the BBC that their intention was not to disrespect Islam, as alleged by the region’s most senior cleric.
The teenager confirmed reports that the group, Pragaash, had disbanded.
Meanwhile, police are investigating allegedly intimidating comments posted on Facebook against the group.
“We will identify them through their IP addresses,” a police official told the BBC.
