Salman Ahmad Makes Earthquake Appeal
By Ras H. Siddiqui

At his performance at Stanford University recently and privately "Junooni" Rock Star Salman Ahmad made a special appeal for continued efforts to aid the October 8, 2005 earthquake victims in Pakistan and Kashmir.
Salman said that he was in Beirut, Lebanon when he got the news that his aunt and cousin were amongst the thousands dead. He wanted everyone to understand the immense nature of the tragedy. On his visit to the Muzaffarbad area in Kashmir he said that it seemed as if the area had "been hit by a nuclear strike." He said that he remembered especially the look on the face of one little girl who had nowhere to go.
"These people need food, they need shelter," he said. "It is going to be a long, slow effort. I urge everyone to contribute," he added.
