‘Opting for a career in music would be a disrespect to my father’s legacy’
KARACHI: Junaid Jamshed’s eldest son Taimur Jamshed on Thursday downplayed any prospects of him or his brothers opting for a career in singing by saying that choosing such a path would be a great disrespect to their father’s legacy.
Speaking the media after his father’s burial, the singer turned preacher’s son maintained that his late father earned all the respect due to his work on the path of Almighty Allah so he or his brothers cannot even think about pursuing a career in music.
Remembering his late father, Taimur said their father never imposed his will on them, was not strict at all and only instructed them to perform their prayers on time.
“We should never miss our prayers, our father also gave us this advice,” he said.
Taimoor Jamshed urged people to pray for the other victims of the plane crash too. He also thanked the nation, Pakistan Army, Air Force, Navy and other people for their love and support.
Pop singer-turned-religious preacher Junaid Jamshed and one of his wives lost their life in a plane crash on December 7.
Jamshed along with 46 others, boarded flight PK-661 from Chitral on December 7. The plane was to reach Islamabad but it crashed near Havelian village of Punjab. The crash killed all on board.
His funeral prayers were offered at AKD Ground DHA in the city, packed with a huge number of people, fans and followers. He was later buried in a religious seminary Dar-ul-Uloom Korangi.
