While the Pakistani judiciary and political leaders are having a brain storming session over how to charge former President General Pervez Musharraf for his November 3, 2007 decision of enforcing emergency in the country, the former general himself seems to be least bothered.
Despite a case being registered against him and facing possible arrest, Musharraf is singing away all his troubles in London.
A YouTube video showing Musharraf sharing stage with celebrated Sufi singer Ustad Hamid Ali Khan has taken many by surprise, and has become an ‘internet sensation, The Telegraph reports.
“I really like his taste in music Pervez Musharraf may or may not be the one leader who did the most good (or bad) for Pakistan. But he may well be the one who sings the best,” said Adil Najam, who posted the video clip.
The video shows Musharraf singing the popular ghazal ‘Laage re tou re laage najar sayyain laage’.While the former general took the lead, one of his close aides and former Pakistan Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz is seen providing a rousing chorus with several Pakistani exiles.
It was not the first time when Musharraf showcased his penchant for music.
Recently, Musharraf disclosed his veiled ‘tabla talent’ at a programme in London.
During a musical show Musharraf found the ‘tabla nawaz’ accompanying the singer out of rhythm. Irritated by the performance, he himself jumped onto the stage and started performing on the tabla.
The audience was reportedly amazed to see a former general extracting the best of tabla beats.
