It is hard to believe that the Qawwali maestro is gone, leaving behind a legacy of Sufi music. It’s not just Pakistan mourning the killing of Amjad Sabri, but condemnations are also pouring in from showbiz personalities from across the border.

One of Pakistan’s best known Sufi musicians was shot dead by unknown assailants riding a motorcycle in Karachi on Wednesday afternoon, triggering an outpouring of grief over what police described as an “act of terror”.

Amjad Sabri, aged around 45, was travelling by car from his home to a television studio, when a motorcycle pulled up alongside the vehicle and the attackers opened fire, killing him on the spot.

Here is how the famous Bollywood stars reacted:
