Pune : Pakistani pop and rock singer Atif Aslam who was declared the most popular artist on Saavn in 2013 and who was all set to perform in Pune, Maharashtra on April 25. Now changed his mind after Indian political party, Shiv Sena threatened to take action if the event took place and his music event in Pune has been cancelled after selling over 1,000 tickets which will be refunded.

Confirming the cancellation of the April 25 event, the Anjaneya Sathe Group, which was due to host the event at the Amanora Park Town in Hadapsar, termed it “exceedingly unfortunate.” The organisers claimed relentless pressure on part of the Shiv Sena, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s coalition partner in the Maharashtra government.

“We cannot proceed with the show after Shiv Sena opposed it. Late Bal Thackeray has always been an inspiration for us. He used to say that patriotism is above everything else,” show organiser Sanjay Sathe told reporters in Pune last evening.

“We belong to the art world. We wanted to do this show. However, the reason for the cancellation is before you,” Sathe said. “Over a thousand tickets for the show have been sold. People will be refunded the amount,” he said.

There was a general agreement when it came to the show’s abandonment. ‘Shiv Sena has always been against Pakistan and the motive behind cancelling the event is to show that Pakistan is traitor. The organizers praised our stand and with a big heart scrapped the event,’ said Hadapsar MLA Mahadev Babar.
