Maulana Tariq Jameel bayaan On Death Of Amjad Sabri – Must Listen…
KARACHI: The whole nation was gripped with shock and horror at the cold-blooded murder of renowned Pakistani qawwal Amjad Sabri on Wednesday.
Sabri was gunned down in Karachi’s Liaquatabad area as he was on his way to a television channel’s studio when a couple of armed assailants opened fire at his vehicle. With six shots fired, two proved to be fatal for the singer.
Amjad Sabri was born on December 23, 1976 to a household which was famous for qawwal, the traditional form of music associated with devotion to holy personalities in Islam. His father was Ghulam Fareed Sabri and he is the nephew of Maqbool Sabri. Together, Maqbool and Ghulam Fareed formed the duo of the Sabri brothers, who went on to garner national and international acclaim. It was under his father’s training and supervision that Amjad Sabri learnt how to sing qawwalis. It was Ghulam Fareed Sabri who introduced him to classical music and ever since then, there was no looking back for Amjad Sabri. Once in an interview, he had described how his father used to train him when he was a little boy.
