|SRINAGAR, Feb 2: Chief minister Omar Abdullah has expressed serious concern over the online threats and abuses to Kashmir's first all-girl rock band 'Pragaash'.|
The state government is mulling action against those who issued the threats. Reacting to the threats, chief minister wrote n Twitter, “The police will examine the threats issued and whether any provision of the law can be used to book those making the threats.”
Omar has also urged the band to continue playing music. "I hope these talented young girls will not let a handful of morons silence them," said Omar.
He said it is shame that "those who claim freedom of speech via social media and then use that freedom to threaten girls who have the right to choose to sing."
Nasty posts have been pasted on the social networking sites of the rock band after it made a public performance here last December.
After the threats, the three-girl band of Class 10 students has decided not to do any public performance. Reports said the group members were under pressure from their parents to stop public appearance.
Adnan Mattoo is the owner of Band Inn Musical Academy in Srinagar, where these girls are undergoing training in music. He told media that "we have to brave threats. For time being, the band may not do public performances but will continue with musical albums and continue performances."
The three teenagers-drummer Farah Deeba, guitarist Aneeka Khalid and vocalist-guitarist Noma Nazir are in New Delhi after the threats.
