MC Kash is one of the most popular rap artists from Kashmir. In 2010, he released the song “I Protest”, which was about the unrest and the killing of innocent youths in Kashmir and human right violations by local security forces. The studio, where the song was recorded was raided by the police, and MC Kash was threatened by the administration, as it deemed the song ‘seditious’. The national media never reported it.
