"Shame on those who claim freedom of speech via social "Shame on those who claim freedom of speech via social media and then use that freedom to threaten girls who have the right to choose to sing," Omar wrote on Twitter. Though there are dozens of bands currently playing popular music of different genres in the Valley, this is the first all-girls rock band and was among the winners after their maiden public appearance. "There has been a wicked campaign against the girls ever since they made their maiden appearance in public on December 26," said Adnan Matoo, who runs musical academy Band Inn where the girls are undergoing training. Matoo, who is also the band manager, said the girls cried after seeing the abusive comments online. "I told them such things keep happening in the social media." The girls have been accused of breaking traditions and bringing shame to the society. Though they have stopped the live shows for the time being, the girls said they would continue to pursue their passion-music. PTI MIJ RT VMN VMN
