Omar Ahsan, son-in-law of Lahore’s popular comedian and actor Moeen Akhtar has dedicated a song to Kashmir. The “new national anthem”, as Pakistani newspaper Dawn reported, was released on Monday in Muzaffarabad, the PaK capital.
The song, the newspaper said, was inspired by the situation in Indian administered Kashmir. He has earlier produced seven songs in praise of Zarb-e-Azab, the military campaign against Pakistani terrorists. IQ Genius Media has launched the song.
The chorus of the song is: Kashmir jo Pakistan bhi hai, yeh Jannat arzi, ye wadi; Hai iska naseeb ab azadi”, (Kashmir which is also Pakistan, this paradise on earth, the valley. Now its destiny is freedom.)
Ahsan has said that “India’s unending atrocities” and Kashmiri peoples’ “remarkable resilience” inspired him to write “a national anthem”.
“I would get so angry after I would see pictures of people with bullets and pellets in Kashmir and I looked for songs on the struggles of the Kashmiris,” Dawn quoted Ahsan saying. “I was disappointed to know that there were no such songs.”
Ahsan is a business administration post-graduate who has done his doctors in psychology. He contacted poets and eventually as impressed by one entry. Of the four entries he got, Ahsan selected the song penned by Sabir Zafar. It was compiled by Karachi based musician and singer Waqar Ali.
Interestingly, Dawn newspaper said that lot of artists were unwilling to sing the song. “Though a lot of artists were reluctant to sing in favour of the Kashmiri freedom struggle, in case it cost them projects in India,” the newspaper said. “Ali Azmat, Umair Jaswal and Alicia Dice decided to sing the song, which Omar Ahsan begins with a voice over narration.” Umair Jaswal, according to Dawn lost at least 18,000 fans from across the border on his Facebook page after he posted about singing the song.
“The audio recording of the song was completed by Oct 22 and making the video took another two weeks, so the project was complete by Nov 5,” the newspaper said. “The song was initially to be launched in Karachi on Nov 12 but the venue was changed to Muzaffarabad, as it is close to the areas where Indian oppression is at its worst.”
The launch ceremony was attended by Pak President Sardar Masood Khan, a number of cabinet ministers and the civil society.
