The national anthem of Pakistan is a beautiful composition. The music was composed by Ahmed Ghulamali Chagla and the lyrics by Abu-Al-Asar Hafeez Jullundhri.
The three stanza composition was ‘officially’ adopted in 1954.
The music however had been composed in 1950 and had been used before the official adoption.
The lyrics are written in a Persian form of Urdu.
The anthem lasts for 1 minute and 20 seconds, and uses twenty one musical instruments and thirty eight different tones.
The National Anthem was first played properly on Radio Pakistan on August 13, 1954.
