King Of Ghazal

H, leaving music lovers in both India and Pakistan with a deep sense of loss of a shared heritage. He was 84.

Singer Lata Mangeshkar had described his richly-textured voice loaded with meaning and melody as "the voice of god." On Wednesday, a tweet said, "It seems gods have taken a sudden liking to ghazals." Coming after Jagjit Singh's death last year, it wasn't surprising that Hassan's demise had triggered the thought.

"It's a setback to ghazal gayiki (singing). He was a school of singing. Just like Dilip-Raj-Dev influenced a generation of actors, similarly Mehdi Hassan's style influenced most ghazal singers," says Urdu poet Nida Fazli. "Hassan globalised ghazal. He used verses written by poets from both sides of the border. He even brought out an album of ghazals written by Ganesh Bihari "Tarz" from Uttar Pradesh."

Bhimsen Joshi was a great admirer of the ghazal maestro. The feeling was mutual. Once when Joshi arrived at a Hassan concert in Pune, the latter got off the stage and warmly embraced him. Hassan then proceeded to sing one of Joshi's favourites, "Zindagi mein to sabhi pyaar kiya karte hain." Born in 1927, Mehdi Hassan belonged to Luna village in Rajasthan's Jhunjhunu district. It is said his ancestors were once court singers of Amer who later migrated to the Shekhawati region. Later they started performing in the courts of the Mandwa nobles. The family migrated to Pakistan during Partition. It is said he also worked in a bicycle shop and as a car mechanic in his youth. Accounts differ as to who really groomed Hassan into a refined singer - his father Azim Khan or uncle Ismail Khan, the latter a student from Bhatkhande College, Lucknow. Hassan mastered a wide range of vocal styles: dhrupad, khayal, thumri and dadra. He started out as a classical singer on Radio Pakistan in Karachi but soon switched to ghazals.

Singer Bhupinder remembers Hassan not only as a great singer of ghazals but also of Pakistani film songs. "His rendition was refined, the style soulful, and his diction immaculate. Unki aawaz mein taiyaari (mature) bhi thi aur thahrav (stillness) bhi ," he says.Hassan valued the praise he received from Indians. He once said, "Jo haq Pakistanion ko meri ghazlon pe hai, wohi Hindustaniyon ko bhi hai. Unhone mujhe kum pyaar nahi diya."In 2001, Hassan suffered a paralytic stroke. When Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee wrote him a letter praying for his speedy recovery, he expressed his desire to visit his ancestral village. More recently, he had planned to meet Lata Mangeshkar, Dilip Kumar and Amitabh Bachchan - a desire that remained unfulfiled. In the last few years, a lung infection had robbed him of his voice. Fazli says, "I saw him at Karachi last year where I had gone to attend a mushaira. He couldn't speak or walk. He silently watched the programme." Hassan married twice and is survived by 14 children: nine sons and five daughters.

Malik Riaz Hussain The Real Estate Tycoon

Riaz, who was under treatment in the United Kingdom, on his return avoided a detailed media interaction and only restricted himself to a brief press talk with the journalists, stating that he would appear before the apex court tomorrow morning and record his statement.

“Since the court has forbidden me from talking to media, I would only tell you that I would record my statement in the court,” he added.

Flanked by security guards, Riaz came out of the airport and later left for his residence.

Earlier, Zahid Hussain Bokhari, counsel of Riaz made it clear that his client will arrive Pakistan with solid evidences against Arsalan Iftikhar by “all means” and would appear before the court for recording his statement.

Bokhari said this while talking to media representatives before hearing of the case of Dr. Arsalan Iftikhar, son of Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry who is facing a suo moto case in the Supreme Court for allegedly taking millions from Malik Riaz of Bahria Town.

“My client cannot be pressurised through applications for registration of cases and he is ready to face it even if ten cases are registered against him,” said Bokhari.

When asked about the importance of the case he said, “My client is very much aware about the significance as well as consequences of the case.”

EnD VioLEnCe

Tariq Jahan had the dignity, the compassion and the common sense to demand an end to the violence that had shattered his life with the death of his son Haroon.Tariq Jahan the Father of Haroon deliever a sensible message to everyone,that calm down and don't do bad things.Just pray for everyone. Because doing long march or strikes wont bring back his son and the other persons who r killed in all this violence.
So being a Muslim he gave good example that go back to Ur homes and say Ur prayers and pray for everyone.This is what Islam teaches us.Everybody have to follow those things.
God Bless there souls.

God Bless UK

Its really been going very bad in UK. Our Country Pakistan is facing such type of issue quite a long time. Everybody blames Pakistan whatever happened, Look at that what happened in UK. Because if such type of incidents happen any where in the world nobody can stop those things. Those people who believe that they r very socialize and nothing gone bad and whatever they r doing right now is a right thing or not. They will have to think EITHER they r RIGHT or Wrong.
Life is a precious thing.Don,t waste on such type of useless things.
If somebody has done something wrong, u and everybody have to control there temper and sit together to rectify  what has gone wrong.
Don,t behave like ill mannered or illiterate people.
May Allah protect everyone  from every bad thing.
