    Factoid

    Traditionally, Hindu Hindustani classical music practitioners are referred to as Pandit and Muslim practitioners as Ustad. Religious neutrality has been an essential aspect of Hindustani music since Sufi times; this is why Ustads could sing compositions in praise of Hindu deities and vice versa.
