Good actor, Mustafa Kamal. He can conjure up tears at will. He's also good at self-praise, etc. So be careful all. My instinct tells me this is yet another topi drama.
As for MQM, God willing their days are numbered.
Superb songs all in all. Ghalib was great, but what touched me most of all was Lagta nahi hai dil mera. B.S. Zafar's death spelt curtains for the Subcontinent. And we still haven't quite recovered from the blow. As for Ghalib, a reminder from the past. Musician, do you still remember the exchanges we had over "Tujhe hum wali samajhte jo na badakan hota?" Still makes me laugh when I think back on it.
Got your point. As one says: slow and steady wins the race. Your explanations about Ghulam Ali did much to clear away the murk. But when all's said and done: the end result was the same as if an official ban had been placed on our singer. What you say about Rahat is absolutely spot on. Not the first time he's shown us such Absence of principles. But well we can't expect Nobility from each Person we meet.
Rahat was a slightly different story. His entry Point was illegal. He flew out and flew back again landing in another city. Why Ghulam Ali was banned I have no idea. If anyone else knows, I'd be grateful to know the reason as well.
One more request, but this time to Javed Sheikh Sahib. Years ago he posted a Rafi song here. A soldier singing on the Radio and his girlfriend listening to him miles away. I've just spent several hours on You Tube looking for it in vain. Oh, well. Perhaps it's too much to ask from anyone.
