Pakistan’s Top Music Artists to Release Anti Terrorism Single in UK


UK Release for Pakistan’s Top Pop Artists Recording of anti-terrorism Song, “YEH HUM NAHEEN” (This is not us!) Release date (July 16th 2007)

Pakistan’s top pop artists gathered together for the very first time to record “Yeh Hum Naheen” which has already become a No 1 smash hit across Pakistan and has become an anthem for the people of the country. The song denounces terrorism throughout the world and sends a message that true Muslims do not support terrorism. The track features the vocal talents of Pakistan’s biggest artists such as Haroon, Ali Haider, Ali Zafar, Strings, Shufqat Amanat Ali and Hadiqa Kiani and will be released on FNIK Music in the UK via iTunes and mainstream outlets on July 16th 2007. The song has been written by Ali Moeen, one of Pakistan’s leading lyricist, while the music has been arranged by Shuja Haider, who is one of Pakistan’s most well known music composers.

The song is the brainchild of Waseem Mahmood, author and media consultant who specializes in the reconstruction of media in post war countries. Waseem Mahmood says: “The idea behind “Yeh Hum Naheen” came about because my children were fed up with the way in which some misguided people were high-jacking Islam and putting forward a message of radicalization and terrorism which was at odds with what the majority of Muslims believe. My children told me that I had to do something to stop this perception and thus the “Yeh Hum Naheen” concept was born!”

“This song is aimed at young people like my own children who have now got to stand up and say this is not us!” He goes on to say “What I see myself as doing is giving a voice to the voiceless”.
Waseem goes on to say that he is heartened by how much support he has received since the start of his project. “So many have told me how important they think the message is”, including the legendary boxing icon Muhammad Ali who sent a message to the group in appreciation of the song’s mission of countering radical messages to the Pakistani youth. Muhammad Ali said that he would pray that ‘Yeh Hum Naheen’ will be successful in bridging the gap between the West and Islam.
