Anti-Extremist Pop Song Goes Viral in Pakistan

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

A satirical music video by the pop rock band Beygairat Brigade which openly mocks the military, nationalist politicians, and religious conservatism in Pakistan has become an internet sensation with more than 400,000 views in a few short weeks. “Aalu Anday,” which means “Potatoes and Eggs,” encourages open thought and a repeal of the country's anti-blasphemy laws. 

Ali Aftab Saeed and Daniyal Tallat Malik, members of the Beygairat Brigade, speak more about their song and politics.
