      I don't mean it offensively to any Shia on here but from reading and experience it seems that most of the singers/dancers/actors/actresses of Pakistan are Shia Muslims. Not all but most. Also why are most of the people in Shahi Mohalla also Shia Muslims? (eg Talat Hussain, Shaukat Ali, Reema, Amanat Ali Khan, Asad Amanat Ali Khan, etc etc etc)

      Is there a reason for that? Do the Shia ulama have a less strict view on music and dance than Sunni ulama?

      This is not meant to be a religious discussion just an observation...

      Maybe you can list a little more to make or break your case, Asif Bhai. Though I am kinda surprised that the religious preference of show business actor/actresses is known to public.

      What about Salman Khan/ Amir Khan or any other khans of Bollywood for that matter?

      Lots of the names u mentioned there are MAULAEES, i.e. neither sunni nor shia.

      well one thing is that during the muharram 10 days PTV alwayshas programmes about the martyrdom of imam e aali maqaam alayhisalam and although we sunnis too love and mourn imam hussain's martyrdom at the hands of yazid (palid malun khabis) we do not wear black or do SOG. Almost all of the singers/actors come on TV wearing all black and doing sog. This shows they must be Shia.

      Also it is a fact that a large %age of our singers/artists/actresses are from shahi mohalla and shahi mohalla has a majority of shias (ref: dr. fauzia saeed's book Taboo).

      what are MAULAEES?

      Never heard of them before!

      [If you mean they say Mawla Ali for Hazrat Ali then that would make most Sunnis Mawla'is as we too say Mawla Ali for Hazrat Ali!]

      I think he meant Mawalees..

      Shia as a community are quite developed in the arts. I don't have any particular reason but just a few observations: Most smaller communities tend to be quite well off eg. Ahmadis in Education, Jews in many things. So I suppose the same could be said about Shias.

      i dont think entertainment ppl r themselves really bothered about what their sect is....
      i dont think they even care what their religion is....
      Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

      It nothing other than the fact that the Shahi Mohalla has historically been the pre-eminemt cultural/entertainment (both moral and immoral forms of entertainment) centre of Punjab for centuries, ever since the time of the Mughals. The Shahi Mohalla is a predominantly Shia neighbourhood - read "Taboo" by Fauzia Saeed and you'll see.
      Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

      TO understand it you have to turn back the pages of history
      iam talking of undivided india or the mughal india
      during the mughal rule most of the people in arts were shias and esp most of the singers, dancers or courtesans.most courtesans of lucknow were shias.
      when cineman first arrived in british india the females who acted in movies most of them were courtesans or shias
      meena kumari
      nargis
      saira banus mother
      and so many others and these courtesans were royal courtesans who were learned women of that time.
      so today you see a large number of shia presence even in indian film industry
      ferozkhan
      sanjay khan
      shabana azmi
      tabbu
      and so many others

      Asif, get out of the box. Pakistani entertainers are in the Showbiz because of their talent and education in the field of music, art & drama, not because they belong to certain Sects of Islam or other religion.

      Ali Haider is my fav. entertainer dude! Mahi O Mahi.....
