Qaumi Tarana
by Abu-Al-Asar Hafeez Jullandhuri (lyrics) and Ahmed Ghulamali Chagla (music)
The Qaumi Tarana (Urdu: قومى ترانہ) ("National Anthem") is the national anthem of Pakistan. The music of the anthem was composed by Ahmed Ghulamali Chagla, with lyrics written by Abu-Al-Asar Hafeez Jullandhuri. It was officially adopted in 1954 although the music had been composed in 1950 and had been used on several occasions, to replace the original anthem by Jagannath Azad. The lyrics speak of a "Sacred Land" referring to Pakistan and a "Flag of the Crescent and Star" referring to the national flag. The national anthem is played during any event involving the hoisting of the flag, for example Pakistan Day (March 23) and Independence Day (August 14).Excerpted from Qaumi Tarana on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
