Am­jad Sabri-A gem lost

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - RIDA HANIF

We have lost yet an­other great per­son from our in­dus­try, Am­jad Sabri. He was such a great man with a won­der­ful voice in the art of Qawwali. A man with such tal­ent can be killed is a big sur­prise for ev­ery­one in Pak­istan. No one must have ex­pected this to hap­pen, ac­tu­ally no­body can even think of such das­tardly act to hap­pen. How can a man like Am­jad Sabri be killed?

In­ci­dence of vi­o­lence in Karachi has be­come a com­mon thing. Peo­ple are be­ing killed by guns, by bomb blasts and many other ways. Am­jad Sabri was a Qawwal, a Sufi singer, so why did he get killed? He used to re­cite such won­der­ful qawwalis that used to bring peo­ple to tears. He was a sim­ple hon­est non-par­ti­san artiste com­mit­ted to his pro­fes­sion, then why was he killed? Am­jad Sabri was a man who re­cited beau­ti­ful Qawwalis with his beau­ti­ful voice. His Qawwali would win the hearts of mil­lions of peo­ple. It’s un­be­liev­able, how can one do such a dread­ful thing?
