As per the reports, YouTube removed Pakistani singer Hadiqa Kiani’s recent song to pay tribute to martyrs of Kashmir on Kashmir’s Martyrs Day.
Hadiqa Kiani released the song in collaboration with Turkish singer Ali Toga on Kashmir Martyrs’ Day and Turkey’s failed coup attempt.
‘Daimi Bahar’—the song which means “eternal spring” is a lyrical tribute that was primarily written in Turkish with a few bits in Urdu. The song gave an overview of both Turkey and Kashmir’s sacrifice through different visuals.
The singer took to Instagram to share the sad news of the removal of the song from YouTube and termed it another attempt of “systematic silence.”
However, she said that these tactics would not subdue the voices for Kashmiris’s rights in Occupied Kashmir.
“Our tribute to Kashmir was removed from YouTube a few hours ago,” said Hadiqa. Criticizing YouTube, the singer said: “There seems to be a systematic silencing taking place, but we will not be silenced because our message is of love and peace.”
The singer also informed her fans and followers on Instagram that an international civil society was committed to the Kashmiris’s rights and was actively working to re-upload the video.
