National Anthem of Pakistan


The National Anthem of Pakistan approved by the Government in August 1954, is a harmonious rendering of a three stanza composition with the tune based on eastern music but arranged in such a manner that it can be easily played by foreign bands.

The Anthem is evocative in spirit, extolling Pakistan as the centre of faith and freedom, a land of beauty and strength drawn from the people and the country. The Words touch upon the various facets of national life, with and invocation for the integrity of Pakistan.
The verses of the Anthem have been composed by a renowned poet of Pakistan, Abul Asar Hafeez Jullundhari; while the tube has composed by Ahmed G. Chagla, the well-known musician and composer.

The search for the suitable National Anthem was long and thorough. In December 1948, a committee was constituted by the Government under the chairmanship of Sardar Abdur Rab Nishtar for this purpose. A tune composed by Ahmed G. Chagla, a member of the Tunes Sub-committee was selected in 1950 provisionally for use as an anthem on ceremonial occasions.
