Folk king Abdul Alim’s 44th death anniversary today

Legendary folk singer Abdul Alim’s 44th death anniversary will be observed today in a befitting manner, reports BSS.

Different cultural organisations of the country will chalk out various programmes in memory of the legendary singer.

They will also hold a milad in the evening.
