Junaid Jamshed, the legendary Pakistani pop star who became a cleric and entrepreneur, is among more than 40 people who died after their plane crashed Wednesday.
His wife Nahya Junaid was also on the Pakistan International Airlines flight with him, Dawn News reported.
Jamshed started his career in the 80s as part of the Pakistani band Vital Signs, quickly becoming a revered figure in the Pakistani pop music scene. He later turned to religion and gave up his musical career.
Over the past decade, Jamshed started a clothing line and became a recognized television personality, appearing on Pakistani religious shows regularly.
The flight was headed from Chitral to Islamabad and crashed near Havelian. Many mourners were especially struck by the death of a national icon.
Some are remembering him for his contributions as a musician...
Others, for his contributions as a religious cleric.
People are also sharing lyrics of his songs in remembrance...
...as well as recollections of their meetings with Jamshed.
Jamshed's last tweet was these photos from his Chitral trip.
