Communist Music VIDEOS from Pakistan from the group "Laal"(in Urdu)


Laal - Dehshatgardi Murdabad (Death to Terrorism)
Many people consider religious extremism to be, merely, a spontaneous response to drone strikes and NATO occupation of Afghanistan. The reality is very different. In fact, the CIA and the ISI deliberately planted religious extremism to fight communism during the Cold War. The truth is that the CIA and the ISI are responsible for the death and destruction we see in Pakistan today.


Laal - Jhoot Ka Uncha Sar
Jhoot Ka Uncha Sar Daikha Hai by Habib Jalib. Laal has combined the Brechtian idea of defamiliarization with the wonderfully satirical poem by Habib Jalib called "Jhoot Ka Uncha Sar Daikha Hai" to comment on the level of lying, deceit and sheer hypocrisy that passes without notice in our society.


Meri Duniya Poem: "Farman e Khuda"
by Allama Iqbal. Directors: Taimur, Omayr, Ammar, & Vishal. Video: Laal and Anjuman Muzareen's campaign for land rights in March 2010.
