All-girl Kashmiri rock band Pragaash gives up after threats and abuse
"Just tell everyone we have quit. We are no more a band," one of the members of the group Pragaash told the BBC.
The three teenage members say they have received threats since they appeared at a Srinagar music event in December.
On Sunday the Muslim-majority state's grand mufti criticised them for what he said was indecent behaviour.
"When girls and young women stray from the rightful path... this kind of non-serious activity can become the first step towards our destruction," Grand Mufti Bashiruddin Ahmad said in a statement, quoted by AFP news agency.
