CM Buzdar Orders Broadcast Of Qawwali Performances On Cable Networks
The Punjab government under Usman Buzdar’s gambit has decided to promote qawwali in the province by engaging the provincial administration and deputy commissioners to promote this art form.
The News reported that an official document giving this order shows the Buzdar government directing deputy commissioners of districts to have Qawwali performances in their areas relayed by order on cable networks. The document not only directed the officials to organise Qawwali programmes but to send reports on a proforma designed for the purpose to the chief minister’s office.
The guidelines of their performa say that deputy commissioners have to ensure the airing of qawwalis on cable networks and have to make a detailed report of the events organised, along with pictures on Power Point. This performa then would be sent to Usman Buzdar.
