  1. If not politics, the visits to Amjad Sabri's residence by so many of leaders, says a lot what could be motive behind the murder. Even if Amjad was nowher near Farid or Maqbool Sabris, the visits and concern carry a lot important a message. It all started in the similar fashion when Dr Imran Farooq was murdered in London and what reaveled afterwards was abnormal to the situation. Will take time to know what is what. But the death is a loss to the art of Qawwali.
