Lucknow District Administration did not approve of the application seeking permission for Atif Aslam to play in a concert in Lucknow this past weekend on Sunday. This comes as a big news as this was not an event that happened at once but it was quite sometime since the administration knew about it.

The concert was organized with aim of promoting friendship between the two countries when things seem to be very tough and anger prevails in India against Muslims.

The reason given by authorities was that a de-addiction program was scheduled and police had this to say:

“More than 30,000 persons would be attending the de-addiction programme,” said the police report.

The organizer is keen on completing what had started and said:

“Once the de-addiction program is over, he would again seek permission from the Lucknow district administration to host the program.”
