Remember the Dangal girl Zaira Wasim who played the young version of wrestler Geeta Phogat. She made headlines after her movie for writing an extremely controversial open letter, that she later deleted from her social media handles. She was accused of violating Islamic laws due to her career choice. However, later she got supported by many celebrities and politicians.
As same as Zaira Wasim, the young talented singer from Indian Idol junior, Nahid Afrin is also accused of violating “Sharia Laws”. She belongs to Assam and some Islamic clerics in her state have issued a ‘fatwa’ against her. But she says she is not afraid and would not stop singing or performing until her death.
The clerics’ organization had also distributed some leaflets in and around near Hojai in central Assam, asking the singer not to perform in a function scheduled for March 25. On this Afrin said,
“I was broken completely after hearing about the ‘fatwa’. But I am not going to stop singing. I have received hundreds of calls and messages from the people of Assam and different organizations supporting me.”
Nahid Afrin had brought laurels for her state Assam by becoming the runner-up in popular television singing reality show “Indian Idol Junior” in 2015. She debuted in Bollywood with 2016 Sonakshi Sinha starrer “Akira”.
On the whole issue, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Wednesday tweeted:
“Freedom of artists is the essence of democracy. Spoke to Nahid and reiterated our government’s commitment to providing safety and security to artists.”
