Srinagar, Feb 5: Breaking their silence, a member of the first all-girl rock band of Kashmir today said they have given up music as they respect the decree issued by Grand Mufti Bashiruddin Ahmad and all other bands in the Valley too have decided to disband.



"We just quit (singing and music) only because of the people of Kashmir... As Mufti sahib said it is unislamic. We did not know that they are unhappy with our music," one of the members of the band 'Pragaash' said.

She said the band decided to quit music after the fatwa was issued by the cleric. "We respect Mufti sahib who said it is 'haram'. We respect the opinion of people of Kashmir also," she added.

The girl said all the bands in Kashmir have decided to disband in solidarity with their band 'Pragaash'.
