Editor’s note: Laal is amongst very few honest and bold voices in Pakistan who are equally critical of Pakistan’s almighty military establishment and their jihad enterprise (Taliban, LeT, SSP etc). We express our full support to Laal’s contribution to Pakistani society and music, and condemn those channels which refused to play “jhoot ka uncha sar” by describing it “too anti army”. (AN)
Channels Refuse to Play “Jhoot ka uncha sar”. They say “it is too anti-army”
We have it on good insider authority that channels are refusing to play Laal’s new song Jhoot Ka Uncha Sar because they consider the content to be controversial, meaning it is “too anti-army”.
Just Today a live show was requested off screen to play “Jhoot Ka Uncha Sar” among the Laal videos being played, since it was a new video by the hugely popular group. The request was denied point blank:
“it cannot be played because it is too controversial”.
On inquiring as to what was controversial about it, the following response was provided
it is “too anti-army“.
The only channel that has in fact played it is AAG TV. All the other channels have not played it (even though they regularly play other Laal videos.
Zia may be long dead but we are still living with his suffocating anti-cultural bias.
