Junaid Jamshed passed on after the tragic flight PK 661 crashed in Havelian, near Abbotabad on December 7, 2016. He was one of 47 aboard the fateful flight that was travelling from Chitral to Islamabad.
Ever since news of Junaid Jamshed’s passing spread, people across have been grieving.
He was an icon. For those who lived in the 1980’s and 1990’s, Junaid was THE rock star. He was the Dil Dil Pakistan guy, he was the voice of the 80’s generation.
Farewell, you beautiful, talented man. You will be missed, now and forever. Thank you for everything you did for us. RIP, Junaid Jamshed. pic.twitter.com/2KP6tdocHS
