NEW DELHI: As Pakistan prepares for its 70th Independence Day celebrations, Indian Acapella Band Voxchord has sent a heartwarming gift across the border: a beautiful rendition of Pakistan’s national anthem.

The two-minute music video by the band begins with the message: “This is our way of wishing you, Happy Birthday Pakistan.”

The video then shows the band’s members holding placards stating, “This Independence Day, we’d like to dedicate a song to our neighbours. A song about faith, pride and grandeur, of power, progress and perfection.”

Many among the Twitter on both sides of the border hailed the gesture, appreciating the powerful message of the music video.
