Sindhi singer Sadiq Faqir (Daily Times (Pakistan))

Sir: It is heartbreaking and deeply shocking to write an obituary of warmhearted, doting and devoted friend and . I cannot find words to pay tributes to the distinguished musician, who died succumbing to fatal injuries following a car crash in Saudi Arabia, where he went to perform umrah. He would never die in the hearts of millions of his fans. He was great a composer and sang the famous lyrics of Sindhi Sufi poets like Shah Abdul Latif Bhittai, Sachal Sarmast, Shaikh Ayaz, Dr Akash Ansari, Ustaad Bukhari and many others. His timeless tunes and melodies of songs are nonperishable. His unexpected death has saddened countless fans and friends. This maestro had performed internationally in Dubai, India, Singapore, England, and got unprecedented appreciation even from those who could not understand his language.
The singer could sing in Sindhi, Urdu, Seraiki, Dhatki, Marwari and other languages and enchanted the audience with his touching and soulful voice. He will be remembered for having cultivated such treasured music in Sindh.
