Rahat Uniting Nations

Pakistan’s legendary classical singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan became successful in capturing hearts once again through his music, but this time, he also became a means to unite nations at United Nations!

Rahat performed for the concert held at prestigious General Assembly Hall in United Nations on March, 23rd 2016 to celebrate Pakistan’s National Day. Keeping the Qawwal tradition of his family and Pakistan alive, he created ideal music for the eve.

The theme of this concert’s music was “Sufi”. Rahat sang some beautiful Sufi songs that made diplomats from all over the world jump to their feet and dance. The integral purpose of Sufi music is to give the message of harmony, love, togetherness and humanity. All these were displayed on this great evening at UNO. According to the Pakistani diplomat, Maleeha Lodhi, she never saw so many diplomats of the world coming together to enjoy music before. To many of them, the words and rhythm even were unfamiliar, but as they say, music has no language, Rahat proved it quite exceptionally well!

The other purpose of this concert was also to make people realize that Pakistan is not a terrorist country. Although there are terrorism issues in the country but Pakistanis love and want peace as much as the people of other countries. Art and culture have always been effective tools in promoting this message of peace. Once again, through Rahat’s performance in America, it is clear that Pakistan is a peaceful country with lovely people and pure emotions.
