Salman Ahmad tweeted out this morning that he would not be participating in the cultural event in Goa following the firing at LOC.
I’m canceling my forthcoming participation in a cultural event in Goa to protest the violence & blood letting on LOC. a Broken #HeartofAsia.

In an interview with Express News he said that he had been travelling to India for the past 18 years and he always talks of peace but we only receive bloodshed in response. He further added that given the situation it would be hypocritical for him do a concert in India especially during Modi’s government.
Salman Ahmad has been really active in promoting peace among the two countries through his music. He has been involved in two documentaries with BBC and is also been a UN Goodwill Ambassador for HIV and Aids.
