Islamabad: Amid grief and sorrow, the nation observed the 13th death anniversary of world’s most leading vocalists and Sufi Qawwal Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan on Monday.
The nation prays to Allah almighty to rest his departed soul in eternal peace.
It merits a mention that the world’s top vocalist was born in 1948 in Faisalabad.
Nusrat made his maiden appearance as the leader of the Qawwali party at a studio recording broadcast as part of an annual music festival organized by Radio Pakistan. His song Haq Ali Ali hit a record with a traditional touch and nation still plays the same with full enthusiasm.
The Guinness Book of World Records says that Nusrat holds the world record for the largest recorded output by a Qawwali artist.
But unfortunately, Nusrat had developed a kidney and liver malady in 1997 in London.
An era ends when the God gifted Nusrat died of cardiac arrest in London in 1997.
