Rock Band exposes the JK state authority:Bhim
Jammu, February 6 (Scoop News) –“Girls Rock Band’ in Kashmir was nothing new in the state as the people in the Valley have been carrying the fragrance of Sufi culture for centuries. The Muslim fraternity in J&K has imbibed the great culture of tolerance and brotherhood for long. The girls’ rock-band sparked a row only after the State Chief Minister fired his twitter either without application of mind or with mischievous mind. Those who have been victims of the undemocratic, authoritarian and oppressive regime of the Abdullahs could not have got a better opportunity to hit back at the twitterer. The Muftis are well-experienced and know the art of striking when iron is hot.” stated Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party and a human rights activist who himself remained in illegal detention in J&K for more than eight years.
Prof. Bhim Singh, a friend of Mufti Bashiruddin said, “The Muftis also aware that Hazrat Daud had unique melodious voice, which is known in the history. Music or singing for peace, harmony and humanity is popular in all the Islamic countries (Saudi Arabia may be an exception). Omakalsum was the most popular Arabic singer in Egypt. Her songs are most popular in the Arab World.”
He said that those who have objected girls’ rock-band bust have shared the passion of Junoon Band of Pakistan, which rocked the entire Valley with joy and participation in May 2008 during its rocky display at Kashmir Study Institute at Kashmir University.
The episode has been blown out of proportion by the media but tragedy looms high where is the state of J&K and where is its governance? Is a religious, soft spoken, apolitical Mufti more powerful, more commending and more acceptable than a popularly elected Chief Minister of J&K? Prof. Bhim Singh questioned saying that the small episode has proved beyond any doubt that there is no governance and no authority of law in J&K. He said that dismissal of NC-Congress government is the only way out to pave roads for the return of peace and harmony in the state.
