Clerics condemn Kashmir pop song

3 August 2004

Religious leaders in Indian administered Kashmir have sought a ban on a pop song by two Pakistani singers.
A line in the song, Kachi Pencil (Fragile Pencil), says God has written the fate of man with a fragile pencil. The song has become popular with people across the disputed state, despite the protests by enraged clerics who say God would never do such a thing.
They have threatened to take to the streets in protest at the song, which is sung by Akram Rahi and Naseebo Lal.
