"Dil Dil Pakistan, Jaan Jaan Pakistan", this unofficial national anthem of Pakistan will always keep Junaid Jamshed alive in our memories.

The masses in general were also left heartbroken and depressed.
Junaid Jamshed's journey was so quintessentially Pakistani. Conflicted, passionate, devoted, ubersmart, and so, so talented. Tragic loss.

Those who grew up in Pakistan during the 90s lost an integral figure of their cultural experience today. Rest in peace, Junaid Jamshed.
