Kashmir girl band Pragaash gives up after threats
Three female high-school students in India have had to disband a rock group they formed after only one concert - this after receiving threats.
Three teenagers founded Pragaash, the first all-girl rock band in Indian-administered Kashmir, in December.
It caused a backlash from internet users, who said it was inappropriate for them to front a rock band.
Since then, a government-backed cleric has issued a fatwa against the girls.
Kashmiri author Waheed Mirza, told the BBC's Mishal Husain the teenagers were "being used".
