Naara Sada Controversial Aey!

After Billo, and Punjaban, despite of the rising popularity of his newest Album, ‘Naara Sada Ishq Aey’, ‘Parmeen’, Abrar-ul-Haq’s latest beloved has also become controversial.


There have been criticizing reports in the newspapers about fights and confrontations among people in incidents when one of the party was playing/humming the song which pronounces Parmeen more as Parveen; a very popular female name in our society.

What’s your opinion of using popular names in music humor, especially by singers like Abrar who are widely listened to in Pakistan? Do you think people are over-reacting or is it right to protest against it?

    I don’t personally mind using real names in humor. I think it helps make a joke feel ‘real’. But in a society like ours, I suppose, it can get stingy.

    But still I think, people should let a joke be a joke… and not misuse it (i.e., if you know someone’s sister is called parveen, you shouldn’t deliberatly sing parmeen in front of him).
