The media wing of the Pakistan Armed Forces known as the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) have released the official song in celebration of this year’s Pakistan Day held on March 23, 2019.
Many people took to Twitter to share the song, including Director General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor. “Pakistan Zindabad,” he wrote.
The song which holds the same title has been sung by Sahir Ali Bagga and written by Imran Raza.
The introduction to the song shows numerous soldiers up in the mountains with the Pakistani flag. The visuals then show a plane and a submarine. “Pakistan Zindabad” they chant. This sets the tone for the rest of the video.
Unsurprisingly, the lyrics ooze patriotism with stanzas such as “Mann ki sachi laggan, seedha rasta watan. Dil ki himmat watan, apna jazba watan…” The song was also performed by Bagga during the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The Pakistan Day Parade will be held in Islamabad with Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad as the guest of honour. Minister Azerbaijan, COAS Bahrain and government officials from Oman will also be in attendance. Various contingents from Azerbaijan, Bahrain, China, KSA, Sri Lanka and Turkey will be participating in the parade.
