In a strange controversy, Hyderabad's BJP MLA Raja Singh who has released a song saluting the Armed Forces has landed in a soup after Pakistan Army claimed that they copied Pakistan military anthem. On Friday, Raja Singh announced on Twitter that the song is his tribute to the Indian Army. Ever since Raja Singh has been drawing flak on social media for his antics.
According to the Pakistan Army, the song's lyrics have been changed from "Pakistan Zindabad" to "Hindustan Zindabad". According to the Pakistan Army, the anthem was released in March ahead of Pakistan Day. Interestingly, lyrics of both songs are the same. "Dil Ki Himmat Watan, Apna Jazba Watan."
Commenting on Singh's video on Twitter, the director general of Pakistan's ISPR, Major General Asif Ghafoor, said: "Glad that you copied. But copy to speak the truth as well." Not stopping at that, another Pakistani journalist commented that Raja Singh's song was not a copy but theft and called the song as an "unimpressive" rendition.
But as unrelenting as he is, Raja Singh responded in his own style to Pakistan Army's comments saying: "I am surprised that the terrorist nation produces singers too. Pakistani singers might have copied my songs. I don't need to copy songs or lyrics from Pakistanis. Baap bete se nahin seekhta hai (Father doesn't learn from son). It is good to see that the Pakistani media is covering my 'Hindustan zindabad' song."
