Pakistan's top rock band will play a concert this weekend in insurgency-hit Kashmir, the biggest musical event in the disputed valley for decades, organisers said on Tuesday.

Sufi rock band Junoon, one of South Asia's most popular acts, will take place Sunday in an auditorium on the banks of the picturesque Dal Lake, situated on the edge of Kashmir's summer capital Srinagar.

Rao said senior state and central government ministers -- possibly including Indian President Pratibha Patil -- would
be among the audience.

"We have also extended our invitation to President Patil. Her participation has to be cleared by her security," Rao said.
