I wonder if those who attacked Junaid Jamshed with slippers at Islamabad airport feel sorry for their badtameezi now.

Those who grew up in Pakistan during the 90s lost an integral figure of their cultural experience today. Rest in peace, Junaid Jamshed.

Request to TV channels- Pl don't show Junaid Jamshed's music life that he had left many years ago. Remember him as a preacher of Islam.
