This is so scandalous and also disgusting. Wake up artists, this is how Pakistan is going to treat you. Defend your legal rights or leave this career trigger this is not [considered] a career here anyways. We musicians are Muslims as well as followers at the same time; when individuals need amusement they call us, when artists need a put on lease they claim we can’t provide our location to non-believers [like you]
