Song of the Assembly
We have been humming this qawwali for years now and its a national favorite: Dam Mast Qalander Mast Mast, a song in the honor of a Sufi mystic ‘Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar’. It has been a hot favorite with many legendary singers such Nusrat Ali Khan, Madam Noor Jehan,Abida Parveen, Wadali Brothers, Reshma, Sabri Brothers, Jagjit Singh, Runa Laila, Lata Mangeshkar, bands like Junoon and this list endlessly goes on.
This time this classic of the classics is coming with a political twist to enchant the entire nation. Yes, it will entice the entire nation at the assembly of PTI supporters tomorrow on 29 April 2018 in Lahore at Minar-e-Pakistan.
Lahoris will dance to the tune of Qalander tomorrow to respond to the call of Imran Khan, PTI Chief.
Let’s hear it:
Slogan of the Assembly
Dou Nahi Aik Pakistan, Hum sab ka Naya Pakistan.
Apart from the supporters, all ticket-holders of PTI for the upcoming general elections 2018 are expected to join the Jalsa-e-aam at Minar-e-Pakistan from all over the Pakistan.
Lahore, the nucleus of PML-N politics of more than three decades, seems to be slipping from its hands now.
Let’s wait and watch how it turns out tomorrow.
