The up-and-coming singer was also a runner-up in one of the musical reality TV shows in 2015.

According to the fatwa, a March 25 programme at Udali Sonai Bibi College in Lanka, Assam, where Nahid, 16, is schueduled to perform is “against the Sharia”. “If anti-Sharia acts like musical nights are held on grounds surrounded by masjids, idgahs, madrassas and graveyards, our future generations will attract the wrath of Allah,” it said.

As per the reports, she broke down after hearing the news of the fatwa that was issued her by the Muslim clerics. “I am speechless. I think my music is God’s gift to me.
