Ali Zafar Routes for Progressive Education

October 26, 2012

PR – Ali Zafar recently visited his old school, Beacohouse, in Lahore where he had topped in his 10th grade. He was invited by the faculty to witness the “Battle of the Bands”, an event the school annually hosts where young budding rock musicians showcase their talent.

One such budding musician was also Ali’s younger brother Daniyal, who while performing “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd invited Ali to join him on stage. Ali played the rhythm guitar for him while he Daniyal sang the lead. Later, as per tradition, Ali was invited to come on stage and say a few words. In his speech Ali appreciated and encouraged all participants and their performances. He also proposed that music be taught as a proper subject from the beginning in schools and that his school Beaconhouse, being one of the most progressive in Pakistan, should take the initiative.
