Afrin was the first runner-up in the 2015 season of the popular musical reality TV show Indian Idol Junior. Nahid made her Bollywood debut singing for Sonakshi Sinha in the 2016 film 'Akira'. Leaflets with the fatwa in Assamese as well as the names of clerics were distributed in central Assam. The fatwa stated that a March 25 programme at Udali Sonai Bibi College in Assam, where Nahid 16 is scheduled to perform is "against the Sharia". "If anti-Sharia acts like musical nights are held on grounds surrounded by masjids, idgahs, madrassas and graveyards, our future generations will attract the wrath of Allah," the fatwa stated.
