Pakistan and India are known as arch rivals; after all, Pakistan was created as a result of India breaking down in two. A lot of differences divide the two nations however, music definitely isn’t one.
Both the countries share an unabashed love for entertainment and music. In fact,some even claim that this is what unites the two neighbours.
Both countries celebrated their 70th Independence day in the August of 2017 and in an effort to encourage peace in the region, warm wishes were sent from one nation to another by dedicating national anthem or singing the national anthems together.
The artist community has joined in the peace efforts too, it seems. Pakistan’s Atif Aslam and India’s Badshah, who both have a huge fan base, are to perform at a concert in Dubai named as “2 Nation Music.”
They will be spreading the message of peace through their music on September 7.
In an interview to Gulf News tabloid, Event Manager Salman Hanif said,
India and Pakistan are two of the biggest communities we have in the UAE and the idea was to bring them together with a message of peace and unity on one stage. We plan to make this an annual event.
He further said that the theme of the concert will be the Independence Day of both the countries and so the decorations of the venue will comprise of flags and banners of both the countries.
