It’s truly bizarre how this never ending course – rather curse – of entertainment has notched us away from the roots we have originated from. There was a Golden Era when Pakistan was free from the profanity and irreverence of hype hungry heroes; in those times the nation was moved by personalities who were worthy of their aspirations; scholars, wordsmiths, artistes.
Ironically the names of such true legendary personalities faded away and now the only national idols the nation could recall are Shahid Afridi, Wasi Shah, Fawad Khan and Mathira.
Sarcasmistan, a prominent Facebook page, run by Awais Ahmed Khan of Rawalpindi, alongwith HRDJ (Haider Javed) has taken an initiative “Bhoolo Matt” to remind a young Pakistani to what it has forgotten, if they are not completely oblivion to the existence of these legends.
BrandSynario appreciates the effort made by Sarcasmistan, as it is important to shed some light on these long gone legends who are the genuine epitomes of our country’s heritage.
