NOIDA: Singer Adnan Sami says musicians irrespective of their religion, spread peace. And if they are being silenced by violence, it's time to wake up to the "dilapidated state of affairs".

Sami lent voice to "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" song "Bhar do jholi" -- a rendition of the famous qawwali of late Ghulam Farid Sabri, whose son Amjad Sabri was recently shot dead by unidentified assailants in Karachi, Pakistan.

Asked to comment on the incident, Sami told IANS here: "It's a very tragic thing. Musicians, irrespective of the place they belong to, are messengers of peace. When you start to silence messengers of peace, then I think you need to wake up and smell the coffee because it's staring you in the face."

"It's a dilapidated state of affairs," added the "Kabhi toh nazar milao" hitmaker, who is of Pakistani descent.

He was here for the Mirchi Live in concert with Adnan Sami -- his first concert in four years in Delhi/NCR on Saturday.
