ISLAMABAD: The government Sunday released the re-recorded national anthem which reflected updated inclusivity in voices and expression while ensuring the sanctity of the original words and musical composition.
The updated version of national anthem was officially unveiled by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif at a flag hoisting ceremony held at the Jinnah Convention Center in connection with the 75th Independence Day.
According to a press release, the first national anthem was launched by the country’s first prime minister Liaquat Ali Khan in 1954 and Shehbaz Sharif is the second prime minister who re-launched its updated version recorded with modern technology and instruments after 68 years.
The Shehbaz-led government has the credit of ensuring timely completion of re-recording the national anthem and launching instrumental versions and a new video featuring new vocal version on the diamond jubilee of Pakistan.
The National Anthem Steering Committee, formed in June 2021 and further mandated by the present government in April 2022, worked to create a re-recording of the original national anthem that reflects updated inclusivity in voices and expression while ensuring the sanctity of the original words and the musical composition.
