The event was held in Karachi at the behest of a close relative of former military dictator of Pakistan, Pervez Musharraf.

The film body All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) released a statement on Tuesday which said that it had had boycotted the singer's association with the film production houses, music companies and online music content providers. The agency report also adds that Asad has close proximity to people of prime importance, including the likes of former cricketers like Imran Khan (now Prime Minister of Pak), Javed Miandad and Zaheer Abbas.

The statement further read that AICWA workers will make sure that no one in India works with Mika Singh and if anyone does, they will face legal consequences in the court of law.

AICWA condemned Mika Singh for putting his profession above the national pride and performed there, amid the tension between India and Pakistan.

Reportedly, some guests shared video clips of Mika's performance on Twitter which went viral on social media in no time.

The association also sought the intervention of Information and Broadcasting ministry in the matter.

Bollywood singer Mika Singh recently performed at a wedding in Karachi, post which he faced the wrath of netizens. "NATION FIRST, ONE NATION, ONE DREAM", AICWA's statement continued. Going by the reports, Mika performed with its troupe of 11 people on August 8, 2019 and it is said to be attended by none other than Dawood Ibrahim, a deadly terrorist on the run who's been wanted by India since decades.

The latest round of tensions between India and Pakistan arose after India diluted the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and divided it into two union territories. It has also chose to downgrade all diplomatic ties with India and suspend bilateral trade.
