Taliban slaughter famous Pakistani singer

The Taliban have slaughtered a famous Pakistani singer who followed a tolerant format of Islam in the latest attack on minority religions in the country.

Two attackers on a motorcycle opened fire on Amjad Sabri’s car while he was on his way to a local TV appearance in the southern port city of Karachi.

Sabri’s brother, who was in the car with him, was wounded in the shooting on Wednesday.

    The Sabri Brothers were famous qawwali musicians and had recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios back in the early 1990s. I bought their CD when it first came out. Sufism isn’t “Islamic” enough…..

      Saw them at WOMAD here in Toronto in the ’80s. The gig was full of these ecstatic, perhaps drunk Sufi men who kept staggering up to the stage and showering the musicians with cash. Quite something else to watch. I used to listen to a lot of Qawwali and taqsim. I imagine these people are all marked for death.

    “A tolerant form of islam.” Tolerant of what ? What are the other forms ? Why are the other forms not considered tolerant ?

      Exactly. They follow islam, in what ever form, islam is islam …so they are not tolerant, do not belong in the West, and I don’t care about their plight.

        …unless they are trying to apostasize …

    Pretty soon every other person in the Muslim world is going to need an MRAP.

    Islamic Fundamentalists are known to hate music and other art forms with an unholy passion. Hence the violent iconoclasm that is feature of their ideology.

    My ex did a CBC gig with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in Toronto a number of years ago. At first he didn’t want her on stage with him because she was a woman. It was explained to him in no uncertain terms that that’s not how it’s done in Canada. Half his family live in Mississauga.
