Arijit Singh asks why Pakistani singers are banned in India

Mumbai: India’s leading singer Arijit Singh commented on Pakistani singers and their performance exposure in India. While performing a concert in Abu Dhabi, Singh asked a question regarding why Pakistani singers were banned in India.

“I have a question. It’s a wrong question, a controversial question. But still, I want to ask it because I don’t give a d**n,” started Arijit.

Arijit continued, “I don’t follow the news much but tell me one thing – is Pakistani music still banned in India?

“Or has it started? I mean in the middle something had happened – but has it restarted now?

“Because Atif Aslam is one of my favorites, so I give a damn.”

India banned Pakistani artists from working in the country after the 2016 Uri attacks carried out in Jammu and Kashmir.
