India’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) lawmaker Raja Singh copied the anthem released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) ahead of March 23 Pakistan Day celebrations.

The development surfaced on social media after the Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) of India tweeted about it on the micro-blogging site on April 12.

Singh duplicated the anthem except “Pakistan Zindabad” chants were replaced with “Hindustan Zindabad”. The track recognised the sacrifices of the Indian military for safeguarding the nation and its people.

Director-General ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor retweeted the post from his personal account, expressing pleasure over Singh’s rendition, and said that India should copy Pakistanis in other ways, which includes ‘speaking the truth’.

On April 5, US officials rebuked Indian claims of shooting down a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) F-16 on February 27. Pakistan invited US officials to physically count the F-16 planes after the incident.

On March 22, the military’s media wing released an anthem for March 23 titled ‘Pakistan Zindabad’.

The phrase ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ was repeated 17 times in the anthem.
