70 Years of Patriotic Songs!

A very happy Independence day to all Pakistanis across the globe. It has been 70 years since India got divided into two halves and a new country by the name of Pakistan was born. Millions of lives were lost to achieve a safe haven for the Muslims of India. We have come a long way since then.

Let’s be honest, there are so many things that we complain about our country day to day. But here’s also a fact that we usually fail to acknowledge; all the flaws that we observe are the result of our collective doings, or I should say ill-doings, as a nation.However, we complain because we expect better from our beloved homeland because we know it can be better. But even in the most critical moods, there is still a lot of love and respect for our country in our hearts. Yes, that’s what we call patriotism and nothing brings out patriotism more that national, patriotic songs. And today, on the celebration of the 70th Birthday of Pakistan, we have compiled a list of some the most hit national songs that have been produced by our artists over the years:

Pakistan is a great nation and we feel that within ourselves. Her beginnings were filled with hard work, dedication and courage, the reason why we progressed so much in the initial years of independence. We are still progressing, Shukar Alhamdullilah, but our pace has slowed down. Being Pakistani, it’s our responsibility to try our level best to contribute in the development and progress of Pakistan in whatever way we can. We owe it to those who sacrificed their lives for this country.
