‘Peechay Hutt’ is Aurat March’s anthem: Hasan Raheem | The Express Tribune

Hasan Raheem, the sensational singer who gained mainstream recognition after his Coke Studio debut, has dedicated his hit song, Peechay Hutt, to Aurat March. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter said that he wrote it for Justin Bibis but the song has now become the “voice of the women of Pakistan” and he stands tall with them in their fight against injustice.

On Tuesday, Raheem took to Twitter to lend his support to the cause. “Peechay Hutt is the anthem of Aurat March and now this song belongs to the movement,” he wrote. “I started writing the song with ‘Rasta choriye ab ham agaye’ for Justin bibi’s and now it’s become the voice of the women of Pakistan. The oppression has to end!”

Raheem added, “[I’m] standing in solidarity with the brave women of Pakistan who are out on the streets to demand their rights and are fighting for gender equality. We must listen, we must support, and we must act.” He concluded with the hashtags ‘Peechay Hutt’ and ‘Rasta Choriye’ and prayed for safety and guidance for everyone.

The singer’s response comes after Aurat March Lahore’s official account shared a video of the song being played during the street rally on March 8. Putting their own twist to the lyrics, the organisers wrote, “Rasta choriae ab ham aa gayae/Garbar ke bawajood March kar gayae/Mashra aur state khechain tangain, phir bhi chah gayae na/Peechay hutt [Make way, now we’re here/despite problems, we’ve held the march/the society and the state pulls our legs, but we’ve still conquered].”

Peechay Hutt features Raheem, Bibis and Talal Qureshi. The song was also a part of Ms. Marvel’s soundtrack.
