Rabita Manzil is a three storey building that was constructed under the guidance of Rev. Fr. Lawrence John Saldanha (Emeritus Archbishop of Lahore ) and blessed by His Grace Armando Trindade (Late Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Lahore) on 22nd November 1991 on the Feast of St. Cecelia (Patron Saint of Christian Musicians).

The programme was started with the Holy Mass offered by Fr. Nadeem John Shakir (Director, Rabita Manzil). All the staff members of Rabita Manzil and the programme producers and co-producers who are working with the Radio Veritas Asia Urdu Service at Lahore were invited to come for the ceremony. After the Holy Mass, Fr. Nadeem John Shakir launched the two new productions namely “Jai Jai Kaar” (Audio CD) and “Khushi Ki Basharat” (DVD).

The “Jai Jai Kaar” is the collection of ten religious common hymns sung by Raja Leslie Harrison (Previous Recording Engineer, WAVE Studio, Lahore) assisted by Sunila Harrison, Lyra Harrison and Brian Joseph. The music arrangements were done by Susheel Harrison.

The “Khushi Ki Basharat” is the collection of ten Christmas Carols sung by Muslim and Christian singers like Muazzam Murad, Shakeel Sohail, Shahbaz Samuel, A. Nayyar, Farah Ali and assisted by the choir comprising of the novices of Daughters of St. Paul, Lahore . The audio recording was done by Mr. Patras Niamat whereas Mr. Hassan Zaidi did the video recording and editing.

While sharing his views, Fr. Nadeem John Shakir appreciated the services of Rev. Fr. John Bouwens OFM (Founder of WAVE Studio) and His Grace Lawrence John Saldanha who supervised the construction of Rabita Manzil and also served here for many years as its Director and Chairman. He appreciated the donors for providing the financial assistance to see the dream come true. He highlighted the productions of WAVE saying that these are inspiring, enriching and melodious. At the end, Fr. Nadeem John Shakir cut the ceremonial cake.
