Junoon Rocks Srinagar

For once, the enchanting valley of Kashmir rocked not with the sound of bullets, screams, and bombs but with the sound of music. Pakistan’s sufi rock band Junoon‘s much awaited performance at Dal Lake in the capital was greeted with a lot of excitement and energy.

Despite our previous speculations regarding the possible band members, Salman Ahmed did come all the way and performed his heart out to a large audience.

The concert was done in the shadow of intense security being provided by Indian Security Forces as there was an eminent threat of attacks by various Islamic militant groups who opposed the event. These groups have been actively targeting cinemas, liquor shops, video parlours and other sites deemed threatening to the Islamic culture.  

“It is great to see music healing wounds in Kashmir and propagating friendship between India and Pakistan,” said Mehnaz Ali, a 21-year-old female student.
