Pop music in Pakistan

Visit Adil Najam's blog to read his post on the birth of pop music in Pakistan and the associated comments. He also links to a video of Waheed Murad performing to an Ahmed Rushdie song.

Watching the video it is interesting to note what passed as a representation (albeit rather imaginative) of Pakistani society in those days and compare it to the religious cast prevalent today.
