National Anthem of Pakistan Honored in Germany

National Anthem is taken as dignity of the nation. No one country in the rest of the world that denies the importance of its reality. It reflects the culture and the ambitions of the nation. It supports the people morally and uplifts the stature of the nation in superb way. The combination of the words of national anthem is mostly unique in its essence.

Pakistan was devoid of its National Anthem when it got its independence from Britain. Pakistan Zindabad and Azadi Paendabad were the lyrics of the song that was played when flag was hoisted at independence ceremony. Pakistan constitutional assembly only approved the flag design before its independence ceremony.

The incumbent National Anthem of Pakistan was composed on August 1954 with the sanction of National Assembly. It was a long process to compose it that was completed in six years. In December 1948, a National Anthem Committee came into being; it was primarily governed by Sheikh Muhammad Ikram who was the information Secretary.

This Committee had numbers of politicians along with poets and musicians with the prominent name of Ahmed Chagla, Abdur Rab Nishtar and Hafeez Jullundhri. At first the committee had to face some complexities to find the appropriate lyrics and music. Ahmed Ghulam Ali Chagla was the composer and the Hafeez Jullundhri was lyrics writer of National Anthem of Pakistan.

The updated movie witnesses of this truth that National Anthem of Pakistan is unique in its formation. It is rated at the top position in respect of its tune. In this movie clip German Army band is playing National Anthem of Pakistan and German Army is giving respect to it with standing position.

The most important point needs to be share that the present National Anthem of Pakistan is the second one. The first National Anthem was composed by Jagannath at the time of independence with the special approval of Quaid-e-Azam.

On the other hand, it is also said by some critics that Jagannath was not that man who composed first National Anthem. Supporting the later sayings, critics also investigated a lot and have also met with the Personal Assistant of Quaid-e-Azam named Ata Rabbani. Ata Rabbani also said that Jagannath never ever met with Quaid-e-Azam. But critics are also helpless to find the name of composer other than Jagannath.
