India and Pakistan combine their national anthems to celebrate 70th year of independence

ISLAMABAD, AUG 14 (DNA) – India and Pakistan – two countries that are turning 70 this year – have decided to put their rivalries aside and celebrate their independence together by uniting their national anthems.

The “peace anthem” has been shared by a pro-peace Facebook group Voice of Ram that hopes to end the hatred between the countries with this song. The new song features artists from both the countries singing each other’s national anthems: Jana Gana Mana of India and Pāk Sarzamīn of Pakistan.

The video that begins with the words – “When we open our borders to art, peace comes along” – has gathered a lot of attention and love from both sides of the borders. It starts with some of the Indian artists singing Pakistan’s national anthem, later joined by artists from the other side of the border singing the Indian anthem Jana Gana Mana.

The peace anthem closes with the words, “Let’s stand together for peace”.

The latest video comes close on the heels of another song posted by Voice of Ram on 11 August, which has already garnered 468,000 views. It features an Indian a cappella band –Voxchord – singing Pakistan’s national anthem as a gift for all Pakistanis.

The song starts with a beautiful message that states, “This is our way of wishing you, Happy Birthday Pakistan.” Then it shows band members holding placards, saying: “This Independence Day, we’d like to dedicate a song to our neighbours. A song about faith, pride and grandeur, of power, progress and perfection.”
