National Anthem Controversy

Some people in India and Pakistan seem to forget everything about the India-Pakistan match and remember what Amitabh Bachan and Shafqat Amanat Ali sang as a responsibility is given to sing the national anthems of both the countries before the match! Ironically yes, both the legendary superstars have to go through a lot of controversies immediately after they have sung national anthems representing their countries.

Firstly, it was Shafqat Amanat Ali, who was being accused of singing the incorrect lyrics of Pakistan’s national anthem. After the entire episode of sarcasm and fun on social media, Shafqat came in defense by saying that it was the sound system that lacked and he by no means can forget the very own national anthem. But what sounded odd was the immediate reactions from journalists and media persons literally insulting the national singer for his mistake. Obviously, even if he did commit the error, he is human after all.

Frenzy was not over in Pakistan when Indian fanatics came with their lame accusation for Mr. Amitabh Bachan. According to them, he should not be singing “Sindh” in Indian national anthem. The blame and the ideology behind this blame, both are absurd. But yet again it is not the first time; Indian fanatics have come up with something so lame!

It is high time both the nations should come out of this stupid mindset. People should pay more attention to genuine issues and value their superstars, who represent their countries on international forums.
