Rahat Fateh Ali Khan enthralls audiences in Riyadh

Legendary Pakistani singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sang his way into the hearts of hundreds of fans who had gathered at Riyadh’s King Fahad Cultural Center for his live performance which he had dedicated to the friendship between Riyadh and Islamabad, officials tweeted on Thursday.

Khan had named his performance after the “Pakistan, Saudi Friendship.”

Pakistan’s Embassy in Riyadh hosted the musical night, on Wednesday, which was attended by Ambassador Vice Admiral (Retd) Khan Hasham Bin Saddique, and General (Retired) Raheel Sharif, the military commander of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC).

The Pakistani ambassador thanked Saudi’s cultural authorities for the help extended in organizing the event.

“Adviser to Saudi Media Minister H.E Fahim Al-Hamid, Vice President GCA H.E Khalid Al Saqar, and prominent dignitaries graced the event. Al-Hamid expressed his support for cultural activities while addressing the jubilant audience,” officials from Pakistan’s embassy tweeted.

Khan is a top Pakistani musician and playback singer in the Hindi and Pakistani fil industries. He was also the first Pakistani singer to perform at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in 2014.

During the interaction between officials of the two countries, Islamabad and Riyadh said they are looking to explore new areas of mutual cooperation in the media and culture sectors.

In the first week of September this year, Saudi Arabia’s Minister Dr. Awwad bin Saleh Al-Awwad visited Pakistan and discussed how the two allies could further broaden and deepen their relationship in the field of media and culture.
