Shaan has a new suggestion for the government.
Responding to the news which stated that the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has decided to allocate Rs50 million to renovate and restore the Kapoor Haveli and other historical buildings in Peshawar, Shaan remarked that the same should be done with Madam Noor Jehan’s house.
“Madam Noor Jahan’s house has become a plaza,” said Shaan. “Sad, our legends deserve it to.”
However, Vasay Chaudhry disagreed with Shaan’s suggestion saying that the legendary singer sold it out of her “own will”.
Shaan then said that the government should have bought her house and converted it into a museum. In response, Vasay said that the government honoured her in her lifetime and “buying her house (especially when she was not even in the need for money) doesn’t make sense, given the economic situation of our country.”
Shaan later said that he believes that Madam Noor Jehan, Mehdi Hassan and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan all should be given the same honour and that they are inspirational people.
It is being assumed that Shaan is referring to the house which was located in Liberty, Lahore. Noor Jehan reportedly sold that in 1997 to finance her treatment in the United States.
