The ongoing tension is not hidden from anyone, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity for Snake to send a strong message during his performance at Sunburn music festival 2019.

Without even mentioning the word CAA or taking any political stance, Snake send a thoughtful message asking everyone in India to stay united.

"I love you India... whole world is watching you. No matter where are you are from... whether you are from east or matter what your religion is... just be together and stay united.... So do not listen to TV, radio or what any politician is saying. Just spread love and peace," he said.

Snake is currently in India and was one of the major performer at the popular EDM festival. He even hoisted Indian National Flag while performing touching the right cord and making all the fans go gaga.
