Blacklisted Pakistan-origin man organized Indian singer’s concert called off

New Delhi: A live concert of Indian singer and actor Satinder Sartaaj, scheduled to be held in Houston on April 17, was canceled after Rajya Sabha MP KL Meena wrote to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking immediate action to stop the concert organized by alleged ISI agent Rehan Siddiqui.  

Rehan Siddiqui was blacklisted in 2020 on the recommendations of the Consulate General of India, Houston. The move came after Shiv Sena MP Rahul Shewale wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah apprising them of the alleged anti-India activities of Rehan Siddiqui.  

Sources said that the concert updates were removed from websites after it was called off recently.  

Meena, in his letter to the Home Minister, also alleged that the money raised from such concerts was used by Rehan Siddiqui for “anti-India activities, especially in or related to Kashmir.”  

Spokesperson of BJP leader Suresh Nakhua had also raised the issue of singer and actor Sartaaj performing at the concert in the USA organized by the blacklisted Pakistan-origin Rehan Siddiqui.  

Nakhua on last Saturday tweeted that Rehan Siddiqui had been blacklisted by the government due to “his links with Pakistan-backed intelligence agencies and anti-India activities carried out by some organizations from Pakistan.”
