Indians sing Pakistan's national anthem as Independence Day gift

As Pakistanis prepare to celebrate the country’s 70th Independence Day with zeal and fervour, Indian Acapella Band Voxchord has beautifully sung Pakistan’s national anthem as a gift.

The beginning of the video is as beautiful as the thought. It begins with a message which reads, “This is our way of wishing you, Happy Birthday Pakistan.” The message is followed by members of the band holding placards stating, “This Independence Day, we’d like to dedicate a song to our neighbours. A song about faith, pride and grandeur, of power, progress and perfection.”

This 9-year-old’s rendition of the National Anthem put Coke Studio’s version to shame

The best gift is the one which you least expect, and people from across the world are loving the gesture!

    A very good gesture and a very different one.

    Can anybody from Pakistan sing Indian national anthem?

    I always find it interesting. I want to know many of its words, right pronunciation and their meanings. Recommend

    @Farhan:
    Do you know why Aamir Khan’s blockbuster movie Dangal was not released in Pakistan? Because, the movie had a scene where Indian National Anthem is played when the Indian wrestler wins in Australia. Pakistan’s censor board wanted this scene to be cut off and Aamir Khan refused.
    Incidentally, Dangal was screened in Beijing film festival and was a huge success in China. I think the movie made more money in China than in any other overseas market. Recommend
