There are 4 songs in this post.

While surfing on YouTube, I was happpily surprised to find followng songs by Runa Laila. Many of you may know that she is the world famous singer from Bangladesh. She has a huge contribution of singing Urdu songs in Pakistani movies. She has also sung Punjabi, Pashto and Bengali songs in Pakistan. Infact, she has sung in 17 different languages of the world.

In Pakistan, Runa Laila has won 2 Nigar Awards, 2 Graduate Awards, 1 Critics Award and a National Council of Music Gold Medal. Besides Pakistan she as won numerous awards in her native Bangladesh as well as in India. There is a large collection of her songs available on YouTube but I picked the 4 that I like the most. I hope you like them too.

    hang on isn’t she bangladeshi, i thought pakistanis hated bengalis after 1971, what next you will say muhammed yanus & grameen bank is pakistani nobel prize winner

    think about it Mr Mughal

    Mr. Younis,
    I can assure you that Pakistanis don’t hate Bangladeshis. Perhaps, many people of Bangladesh have a grudge against Pakistanis – and part of it is understandable and legitimate. Many educated Pakistanis are ashamed of what West Pakistan did to East Pakistan in 1971.
    Runa Laila has sung some beautiful songs – I have heard her sing “Sohni Dharti Allah Rakhe Qadm Qadm Abaad” when she visited Pakistan on more than one occasion in late 1990s.
    So if you are a Benagli, congratulations to you on Mr. Mohammad Yonus’ success. All South Asians have a right to be proud of his great contributions towards humanity. What do you think?

    She got an excellent voice. Great singer

  6. Younis says:

    isn’t this supposed to be pakistani web site, not bangladeshi web site, or do you claim others things as “made in Pakistan”, if you want to publicise pakistan , stict to pakistan

    How do you copy a Youtube clip and paste it? I’d like to copy this Runa Laila video

    Younis,

    It seems you want to pick a fight unnecessarily. Hassan Abbas has already answered your question. Pakistanis don’t hate Bengla Deshis. They are are ashamed of what happened in 1971.

    As for music, it has no boundaries. People enjoy all kind of music regardless of the language or the nationality of the singer. If Runa Laila has no problem singing in Urdu in Pakistan, you shouldn’t have it either. So, relax and enjoy Runa Laila singing!
