YouTube takes down Hadiqa Kiyani’s heartfelt tribute to Kashmir

Sad state of affairs!

The renowned singer’s latest song Daimi Bahar, translated to Eternal Spring, and composed in collaboration with Turkish artist Ali Tolga was a melodious tribute to Kashmir has been taken down from YouTube. Kiyani took to social media to announce this distressing news with her fans, "Our tribute to Kashmir was removed from YouTube a few hours ago. There seems to be a systematic silencing taking place but we will not be silenced because our message is of love and peace," she wrote. She further stated that an international advocacy organisation by the name of Kashmir Civitas, which is purely devoted and working for the rights of the Kashmiris, is actively working to re-upload the video and that she will be sharing updates. This is a developing story.
