Junaid Jamshed was a prominent pop star in Pakistan, he was loved by many people when he used to sing but in the year 2004 out of the blue Junaid Jamshed gave up his singing career and joined the tableeghi jamat. After getting knowledge about religion we saw him hosting shows on various TV channels. Junaid Jamshed was also part of the Ramzan Transmission that was telecasted by ARY. Junaid Jamshed during one of his talks said something about one of the Prophet’s (PBUH) wives which enraged many other Ulemas and also hurt the sentiments of the public.
