This is a piece of Satire

ISPR also focusing on improving quality of videos

Rawalpindi: ISPR has successfully released its second musical video in the memory of the APS Peshawar victims. It hopes to fill the security gap of the country with such musical videos, Khabaristan Times has learnt.

“We have huge plans for spreading patriotic slogans across the country about Pakistan so that they forget their security concerns, and music is the best medium for this,” an ISPR official told Khabaristan Times.

It isn’t only music, ISPR is focusing on improving the quality of its videos, according to reports.

“We are hiring better singers and conducting stage shows,” the official revealed. “See, the army is tired of fighting and we too need a break, so we have asked to get the budget transferred to the ISPR funding so we can better entertain people in a lawful manner.”

He continued: “What we are planning now is the biggest event ever in the history of the world. We invite Taliban to fight with us to the beats! We are going to very soon conduct a dance-off!”

“ISPR has been in the shadows for many years now, but with ‘Main aisi Qaum’ and ‘Dushman ke bacho ko parhana hai’ we are finally in the limelight and we won’t let it go so easily.”

Reports suggest that the dance off will be conducted around the Zarb-e-Azb schedule and will decide the final winner of the ongoing military operation. People from the TTP are in contact with the ISPR finalising the details.

“No suicide bombing or shooting will be allowed during the show. We will definitely win Inshallah. We were born to entertain, and it’s time we bring out the showmen in us. TTP has some hidden in them too, our spies have revealed,” confirmed the ISPR official.

“The dance off will help exert the aggression on both sides, making music the platform of all fights. Because entertainment is more important than the security of the people or challenging any ideologies,” said a military analyst while talking to Khabaristan Times.

The wait has ended.

After a hiatus of 10 years, Noori fans were on Friday treated to the band’s latest album ‘Begum Gul Bakauli Sarfarosh’ which was launched at a star-studded event at the Fortress Square Mall in Lahore.

Believed to be one of the Pakistani rock bands who produce intelligent music and focus on the lyrical content, Noori’s fans can be deemed as those who understand the current scenario of the country, therefore, understand their music. Their last album Peeli Patti Aur Raja Jani Ki Kol Dunya was released in 2005.

BGBS is about the evolution of a youth into an adult ready to take over the world.

“It’s all about finding oneself, starting in 1947 to date; a person needs to explore himself first. If you do not change-the-world won’t change, that is the basic message in the whole album,” Ali Noor, the lead vocalist, told Pakistan Today.

“We are just plain lazy,” Ali Noor said when asked why the brothers had taken such a long time to come up with their new album.

12086902_10156066808940580_1829172815_n-640x360Asked what should their fans expect from them in the future, Ali Hamza said, “More original, non-commercialized songs definitely.”

The event was moderated by Sarah Gondapur and RJ Sophie. Their albums were signed and sold for Rs 500 during the event.

Noori performed the songs from their latest album for the event and also reminisced some like Manvarae, Suno kay Main Hu Jawan among many.

“I just love how friendly and humble these brothers are; just as truthful as their songs,” Amna, an LSE student, told Pakistan Today.

Hamza, a banker, said, “Noori’s music always has some underlying message, their musical perspective is what actually makes their compositions eternal.”

Mohd Ali, a fan in his late twenties said, “I have grown up listening to their songs. I want to show my support for the band and buying this album is the best way.”

“My sister was their fan, and it’s like a tradition that has passed on, meeting them is like an American dream come true,” said an 11th grader, Amber.

This event was the first in their launch tour, Noori will be launching their album in Karachi and Islamabad on October 10 and October 11 respectively.

Noori can be followed on SnapChat ‘Nooriworld’ where they are giving live updates of the events.
