What angering news. I thank Praveer Cheeku of Yatra Arts for posting this earlier in the week, but thanks to tending to my ailing father and a fighting with a computer in dire need of service, I’ve had to wait to post this news until today.
Amjad Sabri, scion of the legendary Sabri Family who have produced some of the finest Qawwali singers ever, was murdered by the Taliban last Wednesday. He was 39 years old, and had continued a wonderful tradition of singing his father, Ghulam Farid and his uncle, Maqbool Ahmed.
May the Taliban be brutally crushed for the evil and misery they have caused to the nations of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Many Sufis grieve for good Amjad this weekend.
