Acting President speaking to media after condoling with the mother and brother of slain Qawal Amjed Sabri narrated a tale about a Sheikh (saint) who was sitting his room when suddenly a bird entered from somewhere who couldn’t find a way out. As the sheikh was watching the bird helpless, he clapped his hands and guided the bird to exit. Similarly Amjed guided people and showed them the correct path through his Qawali and earned worldwide recognition.


“Huge presence of masses on his funeral and the fact that the whole Pakistani nation is mourning and shedding tears is a tight slap on the faces of those forces who believe that they could disturb the structure of the state by spreading terrorism” Mian Raza Rabbani stated while condemning the brutal act.
