New Delhi: Disturbed by the failing peace in the country, Sarod maestro Amjad Ali Khan backed the writers and artists who have returned their awards to voice their concerns.
Pained by the alleged rising intolerance in the nation, Amjad spoke on behalf of the artists.
According to a report in The Indian Express Amjad stated, ''What is happening is very painful. I was watching Narayanmurthy’s interview yesterday and he also felt very concerned. Perhaps the situation does not seem to be normal….. Modiji wants to do a lot of things, but there are some persons around him, who speak whatever comes on their tongue and do whatever they want,''.
He further added, ''Modiji will have to rein in such persons otherwise the peace may be under threat. There are lots of hope from Modiji,''.
