The event was organised by a close relative of former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.

The All India Cine Workers Association (AICWA) has banned singer Mika Singh after he performed in Karachi for Pervez Musharraf's relative.

Mika Singh, known for his hit songs like Jumme Ki Raat and Aankh Maare was invited to perform at the wedding festivities along with a crew of 14 people.

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.

The agency also added, "Opposition leader, Syed Khursheed Shah of the Pakistan People's Party, said the government must find out who gave the security clearance and visas to Mika Singh to visit Pakistan at a time when the country had suspended diplomatic and trade relations with India". AICWA requested Information and broadcasting ministry to intervene and act legally on the singer.

This comes after videos of Mika performing at an event in Pakistan surfaced online. The event was called as "Mika Singh Night" and took place very close to the residence of Anees Ibrahim and Chhota Shakeel, who needs no introduction and are prominent members of the D-Company.

AICWA condemned Mika Singh for putting his profession above the national pride and performed there, amid the tension between India and Pakistan. "NATION FIRST, ONE NATION, ONE DREAM", AICWA's statement continued. Certain reports suggest that the pop singer charged 15000 USD (Rs. 1.06 crore approx) for the performance. Netizens from both the countries lashed out against the entertainment spectacle and celebrations amidst growing tensions between India and Pakistan. It has also made a decision to downgrade all diplomatic ties with India and suspend bilateral trade.
