To mark the occasion of Defence Day, celebrated every year on September 6, singer Atif Aslam has released a new song Pighaan Laye Saba, paying tribute to the armed forces of Pakistan.
Posted to the ISPR’s official YouTube page, the description of the song reads, “In accordance with the spirit of Pakistan Defence Day, this song is a tribute and an acknowledgement of the ultimate sacrifices made in the line of duty by our fearless men in uniform.”
Describing the themes at the heart of the song, it continued, “Paighaam Layi Saba is dedicated to the iron will and perseverance of every soldier and every martyr. It showcases the courage and valour of the daring men, who tirelessly serve their country, who selflessly sacrifice everything in order to ensure the safety of their people and land. It also projects the immense strength and fortitude of their families, who never fail to support them.”
Speaking about how the song encapsulates the feelings of a soldier, it reads, “Words of this song come straight from the heart of a Pak soil’s brave son. The track is an honest expression of his passion and devotion towards both; his home and homeland. It is an earnest promise he makes to himself, his loved ones and his country and the way he keeps that promise even as he breathes his last.”
Atif is not the only artist to pay tribute to the armed forces on Defence Day. Ali Zafar also released a new track titled Mein Ura to mark the occasion. The Channo singer teased the song late last month, taking to his Instagram to mark the release. He wrote underneath the post, “Mein Ura is out now. A tribute to our brave warriors in the air defending us day and night.”
