    THE BACKGROUND:

    Music and controversy sometimes go hand in hand; it’s been three loooooong years since we’ve seen another controversial political satire song. Back in 2008, it was Shehzad Roy with “Laga Reh” which included the socio-political matters of Pakistan – it is currently one of the most talked-about-controversial songs coming out from a Pakistani singer in my opinion.

  2. Aalu Anday – by Beygairat Brigade
    One of the most well-informed Pakistani music videos: Aalu Anday – by Beygairat Brigade

    Great song, very smart lyrics and video, most probably inspired by veteran columnist Kamran Shafi’s critical articles on the Ghairat Brigade, e.g., The Ghairat Brigades and the truth.

    In one sentence, the beauty of this song is its critical assessment of not only right wingers (the mullah lobby) but also the urban fake liberals (the Imran Khan and Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry lobby). Both of these groups, right winger mullahs and urban fake liberals serve as two well coordinated lobbies of Pakistan’s military establishment and hence deserve to be exposed and confronted on various forums and media. We congratulate the Beygairat Brigade for taking a clear stance on issues which remain generally obfuscated by Pakistani mullahs and fake liberals.

  3. YouTube video of the day: We love Aalu Anday!
    By Atika Rehman
    Published: October 18, 2011

    With their song ‘Aalu Anday’, a parody of the current state of politics and mindsets in Pakistan, Beyghairat Brigade gained instant popularity when their music video went viral on the web.

    The YouTube video shows three nerdy young boys in school uniforms and painted faces. They seem visibly unhappy as they sing about their packed lunch which consists of aalu anday (potato and egg curry), because they would prefer to eat chicken – even though it is a more expensive option.

  4. COMMENT: Aalu Anday! —Fahd Husain

    Beyghairat Brigade will always be known as the boys who finally said the emperor had no clothes. They will always be credited for being politically incorrect when most needed, and giving voice to all those Pakistanis who live in fear of freedom from fear

    Aalu Anday (potatoes and eggs) never tasted so good.

  5. Aalu Anday: Make way for the Bayghairat Brigade

    KARACHI:

    What do you expect from a band called Bayghairat Brigade? Well, for starters the band has the perfect recipe for entertainment — a song called “Aalu Anday” with clever tongue-in-cheek satire in Punjabi that summarises Pakistani politics and an engaging video that gets over 25,000 hits a day.
